These men and women embody the values of our organization and are committed to sustaining our organization’s ability to address community needs, impact lives, and promote our faith community in Central Florida.


The Catholic Foundation inspires giving to fund God’s work throughout the Diocese of Orlando’s nine-county area. Established in 2008, The Catholic Foundation is an independent, nonprofit foundation that has worked with donors and pastors to support our community. Its assets of more than $56 million in investments are managed for growth and to respect Catholic social teaching. We help individuals and organizations engage in philanthropy in a faith-filled way through socially screened investment options. These resources have built new and expanded churches and community centers to grow faith life in the Diocese as well as prepare seminarians for the priesthood and support retired priests. Additionally, these funds support education, health, housing and food assistance addressing community needs throughout Central Florida.
