Donation Opportunities

There are four types of funds that can be created or donated to through the Catholic Financial Life Foundation.

Four Funds

Donor Advised – These funds allow members to establish a fund while they are living and determine which charities receive grants.

Donor Designated – These funds can be established while someone is alive or upon their death. The donor specifies which organization(s) receive an annual donation. This is a great way to support your parish, school or other favorite charity in perpetuity if you want.

Field of Interest – These funds combine donations from members to support specific types of charitable causes. The Foundation’s three field of interest funds match Catholic Financial Life’s charitable priorities: helping the poor, supporting Catholic education and assisting people with special needs.

Unrestricted – These funds allow the Foundation’s Board of Directors to make grants to qualified organizations that fit within the Foundation’s mission.

Establishing a Fund

Would you like to make a difference and fulfill your charitable wishes? Establish a fund through the Catholic Financial Life Foundation to benefit your parish, school, favorite charity or all of the above through this three-step process.

  1. Determine the charities or causes most important to you.
  2. Make a gift to the Catholic Financial Life Foundation or name the Foundation as the beneficiary or partial beneficiary of a life insurance policy, an annuity, or other aspects of your estate. A minimum of $25,000 is necessary to establish a named endowed fund but any amount can be donated to the existing field of interest funds at any time.
  3. Contact the Catholic Financial Life Foundation to establish a fund consistent with your charitable wishes.
