It was a celebration 30 years in the making! For three decades the Catholic Community Foundation of Minnesota (CCF) has worked to build a vibrant Catholic community through the inspired generosity of our donors and partners. And on April 27, 2023, more than 1,200 of our friends came to the table to celebrate the joy and power of giving. Our intent in hosting the event was to put you, our community, front and center — to thank you for believing in CCF and for your partnership in 30 years of collective impact.
It was a night of fellowship, story-telling, and powerful messages from our guest speakers. The room teemed with hope and joy, as Catholics from all corners of Minnesota representing a wide variety of interests united with a common interest: building and sustaining our local Church.
Most of our guests commented on the sense of community and connectedness that they felt at the event. Despite the great numbers gathered, people saw friends from different parts of their life all throughout the room. Folks even related it to a homecoming or a family reunion.
The event was made possible by many sponsors, who are highlighted on our 30th anniversary webpage. But really, every single person who attended made the evening special. Thank you for accepting CCF’s invitation to come to the table.
For those of you who couldn’t attend, we’ve pulled together a short article recapping the evening here. And if you’re looking for more, you can visit our 30th anniversary webpage, where you’ll find videos and photos from the event.
We are grateful for each of you and the gifts that you so generously share to support this Catholic community. Through your support and the profound generosity of our donors and partners, CCF will continue to be a present force for good in our community for generations to come.
