Ministry and Outreach Funds

Catholic Community Foundation > Funds > List of Funds > Ministry and Outreach Funds


There are many ways to support the needs of our communities through the Catholic Community Foundation. Charities may have an existing Endowment or Donor Advised Fund (DAF) on their own to provide funding for daily operations or future needs. In addition, many individuals have chosen to establish their own Fund to provide financial support for a particular cause or organization.

In 2023, there were 47 funds totaling over $11 million established through the Catholic Community Foundation to support Ministry and Outreach programs.

“There’s nothing harder than to know someone’s hungry, especially when it comes to the elderly and the children … and we see a lot of them. Distributions from the Balch Family Fund really put us in the position to say ‘yes’ a lot more than we normally could.”
