How It Works

Help our Catholic Community Continue to Thrive for Generations to Come

Simply put, generosity and compassion are what it takes to maintain the good works of the Archdiocese of Baltimore and to ensure they continue into the future. We will work with you or your organization to create a plan for supporting your parish, cherished school or ministry that is most important to you. When you partner with us, you will see that the causes you value most are sustained well beyond your lifetime.

There are many ways to make a gift and many ministries that could be assisted at the parish, school, or Archdiocesan level.

Depending on your situation, there are different ways to structure your gift so that you can receive regular income during your lifetime, save on taxes, or both. We recognize that many people want to help others and want to express their gratitude to God through a legacy gift, but simply do not know how to do it. We would like to make it easy for you to make a lasting gift and receive the benefits of doing so. The Catholic Community Foundation stands ready to speak with you about the types of ministry that you could support by establishing your own legacy and about the types of giving options available to you.
