Catholic Financial Life Foundation

Making an Impact

People across the country have taken advantage of this benefit to help support the causes closest to their hearts, including the Willems Family.

Willems Family

The Willems Family

According to Dorothy Bennett and Mary Jackson, their parents, Grace and Paul Willems, valued Catholic education and helping those in need. Growing up, the family was rich in faith and generosity, but not always in monetary wealth. Although at times they struggled to make ends meet, they did their best to save for the future and give back.

During a discussion with her long-time friend and Catholic Financial Life Advisor, Rick Kremel, Grace learned about the Catholic Financial Life Foundation. She decided that establishing a fund with the Foundation would be a perfect way to continue the charitable giving that she and Paul felt so strongly about. With the help of the Foundation, Grace was able to ensure that after her death, donations would be made to 10 different organizations of her choosing.

Following Grace’s passing, her daughters, Dorothy and Mary, wanted to continue their parent’s legacy. With the help of Rick Kremel and the Catholic Financial Life Foundation, an educational scholarship fund was created to honor the values their parents lived by.
