Thanks to the generosity of our Catholic community, the Catholic Community Foundation (CCF) has grown significantly in recent years. We now manage $340 million in assets and grant $14 million annually.
But we have big dreams.
To build and sustain a vibrant Catholic community, we aim to grant $50 million annually by 2028. It’s a big, beautiful vision that requires thoughtful growth.
To effectively drive toward our vision, we needed to increase the capacity of our staff. So in 2018, we prioritized filling open positions and building our team. We hired a total of five new staff members, three of whom filled brand new positions at CCF.
• Lori DiVito, Administrative Assistant of Investments
• Chris Hagen, Staff Accountant
• Christopher D. Nelson, J.D., Vice President of Development & Donor Engagement
• Casey Scott, M.B.A., CPA, Vice President of Finance & Administration
• Brianna Thompson, Communications & Events Manager
To accommodate these new staff members, we expanded our office space. With this expansion, we added four new workstations and created more meeting spaces for our team of 17.
The CCF staff is grateful for the ongoing support of our generous donors, which has enabled our continued growth. Already we have witnessed the positive impact of the new faces and spaces on our work and mission. If you see or hear from any of our new folks, please give them a warm welcome, and feel free to stop by to see the new space!
