Establish an Endowment Fund

A donor or family can establish a permanent endowment for a specific purpose as defined in the Endowment Agreement and managed by the Foundation in perpetuity.

The fund, which can be named for the specific ministry or in honor of a family or person, can be in the amount of $10,000 or more. 

A new Endowment that benefits a Catholic parish or school may be started in the amount of $5,000, or more. 

The Foundation provides perpetual management for the growth and protection of the funds.

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 the following dilemmas:

How do I invest my funds in a moral 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?

Clients of the Catholic Community Foundation (CCF) can be confident that they will earn competitive financial returns while generating social returns in alignment with the teachings of our Catholic faith.

All CCF investments are aligned 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 Agency Investment Funds.

In 2022, through generous donations to CCF’s managed Endowment funds along with their excellent investment return, nearly $3 Million in grants were distributed to Catholic parishes and organizations of the Archdiocese of San Antonio.
