Many Catholics hunger to experience the joy of philanthropy — and are looking to do so in ways that make financial sense now and into the future.  When you refer Catholic clients to the Catholic Community Foundation, you’re not only helping them achieve their charitable goals and dreams but also increasing your value as a trusted advisor.

We offer a wide range of tax-advantaged giving options that make it easy for your clients to give according to their faith and ensure their wishes are honored not just during their lifetimes, but forever. Through their demonstrations of faith and generosity, donors often hope to inspire the next generation of philanthropists.

“My only disappointment is that I have been a financial advisor for 25 years and only discovered CCF in the past few years.”

You don’t have to accept us on faith

We operate professionally and transparently. CCF holds $350 million in assets and manages some of the most sophisticated financial transactions in the charitable realm.

While past performance is not guarantee of future results, our 990s and audited financial statements make it clear that we not only know what we’re doing but we do it very, very well.
