As a community foundation for Catholics, we help individuals and families pass along their faith, heritage and values for future generations. The Catholic Foundation of Northeast Indiana serves as a catalyst for helping Catholics make a lasting difference.
We are Catholic. We understand the stewardship and spirituality of the Catholic heritage. We understand and respect your desire to support the Church and provide a legacy of faith for future generations. The Catholic Foundation encourages Catholic giving – for a variety of causes and needs throughout our diocese.
We provide professional planned giving services and assist with planning gifts in wills or estate plans.
We are managed by an independent Board of Directors – including lay leaders, and clergy, – that ensures professional investment management of the funds. Funds are invested to preserve and grow over the long-term, in accordance with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Socially Responsible Investment Guidelines.
We protect your intent as a donor forever and provide professional administration to ensure timely reporting and compliance with all legal requirements.
We build up the Church in the Diocese of Fort Wayne – South Bend by providing grants that impact our local community. Grants and distributions are awarded to organizations in conformity with Catholic teaching.
If you are thinking of leaving a legacy – a gift that lasts forever – be assured that the Catholic Foundation will handle it in a manner consistent with Catholic values and your wishes.
