Make a Donation to Our Foundation

Making a donation to the Catholic United Financial Foundation is tax-deductible and supports efforts to strengthen the communities and causes that Catholics care about.

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

Many charities must take a portion of your gift to cover their own costs (salaries, expenses, mortgages, etc.). According to Charity Navigator, a majority of charities spend about 25 percent of every donation on the overhead of running their operations and 75 percent of a gift on the actual cause. This Foundation is different. Since all costs associated with running this 501(c)3 organization are covered by Catholic United Financial, 100 percent of your gift is passed on to the parish, charity or cause that matters to you.

Contact the Foundation to learn more about these types of giving. When making a planned gift such as bequests, life insurance, retirement plan we can assist you with the proper execution of your type of gift.

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

Catholic United Financial Foundation
3499 Lexington Ave N
St. Paul, MN 55126
