There are many ways to support the men and women devoting their lives to religious service. As members of the Catholic faith community, each of us can play an important role in encouraging and supporting those who answer God’s call.

In 2020, there were over 30 funds established with the Catholic Community Foundation to support Clergy and Vocations totaling over $4.8 million.

Stromberg Fund “This is a good means to accomplish many things. Also, the endowment is professionally managed with a strong Investment Committee around it. We like the cause. We like the efficiency with which our money is invested. That combination is pretty powerful.”
