Our Catholic faith helps us realize each person has inherent dignity; they are created in the image and likeness of God.

Accordingly, we provide charitable grants to organizations that serve the poor and vulnerable.

Our grants are for projects in three focus areas:

  • Immigrants & Refugees
  • Seniors Living Independently
  • Empowering Youth to Resist Human Trafficking.
