Celebrating Over 20 Years!

The Catholic Foundation was established in 1998 as a fiduciary for current and deferred major gifts and endowments to Catholic organizations.  We primarily help provide for the long-term financial support of ministries and parishes within the Archdiocese of Denver, which covers the northern half of our state.

While the Foundation is legally distinct from the Archdiocese of Denver, our sole intent is advancing the mission of the Church. Donors may also direct their gifts through the Foundation to other worthy organizations.

Call us today at 303.468.9885 to learn more about planned giving, donor advised funds and ways to support your parish. 

Strengthening our parishes and our Catholic community

The Catholic Foundation exists to inspire and facilitate financial planning and giving that promotes the Gospel, transforms lives and glorifies God.

Giving through the Foundation supports Catholic parishes, schools and other charitable organizations. And while you can give directly to those causes, when you channel your giving through the Foundation you gain the advantages of our staff expertise, faith-based priorities and the standards in our Morally-Responsible Investment Policy.

The Catholic Foundation accepts current and deferred gifts to provide the financial resources needed to meet many diverse needs in six diverse categories of grants: Caring for our Community, Teaching our Children, Spreading the Good News, Strengthening our Parishes, Preparing Our Priests and Bridging the Gap.

Established in 1998, The Catholic Foundation of Northern Colorado is a 501(c)(3) public charity, a public juridic person of the Catholic Church and a separate legal entity from the Archdiocese of Denver. This legal status enables the Foundation to safeguard your gifts for the charitable purpose you specify.

It is important that you contact us and name The Catholic Foundation (FEIN: 84-1481641) as the recipient of your gift to take advantage of these benefits.
