Our Foundation

Striving to strengthen our Faith and provide support to others, not because they are Catholic, but…because WE are Catholic.

In our complicated and fast-paced lives, it is often difficult to believe that each of us has the power to deeply affect the world around us. However, we can have a profound effect by working together.

Catholic United Financial Foundation was founded in December of 1997 to provide members of Catholic United Financial with faith-honoring options for their charitable giving. The Catholic United Financial Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization. Donations made to the Foundation are tax-deductible.

Giving Opportunities

The Foundation partners with donors in four specific programs.
1) Catholic Education Priority Fund

supplies dollars to our grant-making efforts to Upper Midwest Catholic schools in the areas of education technology, and chastity and abstinence education.

2) Catholic United Response

disaster recovery project designed to provide assistance with emergency supplies for personal hygiene, cleanup and comfort for those victims whose homes have been damaged. When communities are ready for cleanup and rebuilding, we can be there with equipment and tools necessary to help with recovery. Learn more…

3) Monsignor Schuler Seminarian Fund 

provides grants to seminarians to help them with their everyday expenses as they serve and study for the priesthood. Learn more…

4) Charitable Giving Planning

take advantage of the tax savings available through charitable giving while, more importantly, supporting the Catholic Church. Planned charitable giving is an essential part of any estate plan.

100 percent of your gift is passed on to the charity or cause that matters to you. 

You can send your tax-deductible gift to this address:

3499 Lexington Ave N
St. Paul, MN 55126
