We have much to celebrate and even more to be grateful for. From a start-up Foundation in 2001, the Foundation has grown to be a philanthropic leader in our community with $20 million in assets. Since 2001, the Catholic Foundation has raised $19.4 million for endowment and now manages 101 separate endowed funds to provide continual resources for years to come. The Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso is an independent 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
The Foundation manages five programs: the Catholic Legacy Fund, the Foundation’s endowment program; Progress, the Catholic Ministry Appeal which provides operational funds for diocesan ministries; and the Grants Development Office which seeks foundation and corporate grants for ministries, schools, and parishes. In addition to that, the Foundation promotes Stewardship as a way of life and the principles “Pray, Serve, Give” through training and materials for schools and parishes. Finally, there is the Foundation’s Scholarship Program, which supports the education of Foundation Scholars attending El Paso’s Catholic schools every year.
Thank you so much for being a part of our extended family. During these uncertain times, there is one thing that hasn't and won't change: our commitment to improving the lives of people in the Diocese of El Paso. Your unwavering generosity, especially during this extraordinary time, is an inspiration. Thank you for your support!
