Our faith precedes policy and practice and calls us to a higher level of stewardship.
This moment of grace…this moment of hope…is filled with great joy.
This moment comes not from serendipity, but from the hand of Almighty God.
Like the parable of the talents, our commitment is to service, accountability and results.
Every day we live the paradox of preservation versus innovation.

The Catholic Community Foundation
Our ministry is a simple one: Called to stewardship and service, we offer endowment and depository/investment management services to entities of the Roman Catholic Church. Additionally, we offer managed “giving vehicles” to donors wishing to support Catholic ministries through endowments, donor advised funds, testamentary and planned giving or outright gifts.
Invest with Purpose
When you entrust your funds to the Catholic Community Foundation, they grow through socially responsible investments managed by financial experts -and are reinvested by you for the good of the Catholic community.
Catholic Socially Responsible Investing
When considering investing your assets, people of faith, Catholic parishes and Catholic organizations are often confronted with a dilemma. How do I invest my funds in a morally and socially responsible way and still receive competitive returns? How can I trust that the companies I place my assets with will invest them in ways that benefit and strengthen my Catholic community?
In Socially Responsible Investment Guidelines, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops advises, “All economic life should be shaped by moral principles. Economic choices and institutions must be judged by how they protect or undermine the life and dignity of the human person, support the family and serve the common good.” Clients of the Catholic Community Foundation (CCF) and its subsidiary the Catholic Fraternity Fund (CFF), an autonomous pious foundation, can be confident that they will earn competitive financial returns while generating social returns in alignment with the teachings of our Catholic Church.
All CCF/CFF investments are over 99% compliant with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Guidelines on Socially Responsible Investing. Our Foundation provides parishes and Catholic organizations with Endowments, Donor Advised Funds and Planned Giving, while the Catholic Fraternity Fund offers investment funds which will support their mission and ministries. In 2017, through generous donations to CCF’s managed Endowment funds along with their excellent investment returns, $2 Million in grants were distributed to Catholic parishes and organizations of the Archdiocese of San Antonio.
At the Catholic Community Foundation, we believe we are the best possible stewards of your assets. We welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can assist you.
