Bringing Ministry to Life

The mission of the Catholic Foundation is to support the work of Jesus Christ in the Diocese of St. Petersburg, bringing ministry to life. This means that in addition to working with parishes and schools, we strive to Legacy programs for our organizations and larger ministries. This includes, but is not limited to, striving to connect donors who love larger ministry to special funds offering long-term support for programs such as formation and education of our future priests, support for our retired clergy, youth ministry and young adult programs, Catholic Charities and our Catholic radio station, Spirit FM 90.5.

Foundation Heroes can help these organizations continue to serve those in need by using a tool like an endowment, charitable gift annuity, issuing a grant from a Foundation Donor-Advised Fund or other gift planning options.  We invite you to learn more about the many ways you can leave a legacy by visiting our Gift Planning page for the Diocese.

If you would like to partner with the Catholic Foundation to create an endowment for your favorite outreach ministry, set up a Ministry Life Fund or initiate a gift for a particular interest in an area of support or specific Catholic organization, we invite you to call us at 727-374-0220 to begin the conversation.
