Proven Success

With more than $32,000,000 in assets under management, the Catholic Foundation has enjoyed a track record of success and profitability in the investment of the funds that have been entrusted to us.

Well Respected

Our reputation in both the diocesan and parish communities is a strong one and one that we strive to maintain and improve upon each day.

Partnership

Every parish, school and individual who invests their funds for the future benefit of their Church with us, enters into an important partnership with us – one built on trust, integrity and past success.

Knowledgeable

Whether it is a parish, a school or an individual planning their legacy, many count on the advice and counsel that they receive from the Catholic  Foundation to do what is right for them, their family and their Church.

The mission of the Catholic Foundation is two-fold: to ensure the future prosperity of the Church and to provide tuition assistance to our Catholic schools.

As a part of their legacy, many of the faithful have stated their intention to leave a portion of their estate to their parish and/or the Diocese of St. Petersburg. Since our inception in 1997, we have worked with these dedicated parishioners, community leaders and businesses to help determine the best way for them to accomplish this. Due to the efforts of the Catholic Foundation, many parishes today have established endowments and other funding vehicles that will provide a portion of their annual income to them in perpetuity.

Through programs such as the Bridge Scholarship Program, the Match Grant Tuition Assistance Program and the High School Special Assistance Program, the Catholic Foundation is helping many families, who otherwise could not afford it, give the gift of a Catholic school education to their children. Each year, more than 350 students receive assistance from one of our programs.

Whether you are providing long-term financial support to your parish or helping to educate the next generation of Catholics, your gift to the Catholic Foundation represents an investment in the future of our Church in the Diocese of St. Petersburg. God bless you.
