Making philanthropy easy and effective
Since 2001, The Catholic Community Foundation has supported effective philanthropy in Southeastern Wisconsin through two primary roles:
For donors: Establish permanent charitable funds to create long-lasting support for the causes individuals and families care about.
For parishes, schools and other Catholic organizations: Provide cost-effective, socially responsible investment management to keep endowment assets growing.
As a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, the Foundation is independent of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Our board of directors includes Catholic religious and community leaders. The Foundation focuses on four priority areas: education; leadership development; health care for the under-served in Milwaukee; and community-building to strengthen families, parishes and those suffering from poverty, discrimination, and violence.
