Celebrating 25 Years of Serving the Diocese of Pueblo!

2020 marks the Catholic Foundation’s 25th anniversary. Thanks be to God! Over the past 25 years, the Catholic Foundation has awarded nearly $2,000,000 in grants throughout our vast diocese. Our outreach to the faithful extends from the far western mountains to the eastern plains of Colorado. The Catholic Foundation is honored to call itself The Giving Arm of the Diocese. We thank God for the opportunity to help, in whatever small way, those Catholic organizations within our borders as we follow the Little Way of St. Therese. We are ever grateful to our supporters who make our mission possible. Please consider a donation in honor of our 25th anniversary and help continue our legacy of giving for the next 25 years.


You Helped Us Meet Our Goal!!!

Thanks to an outpouring of support, the Catholic Foundation not only met but exceeded our $40,000 Matching Gift challenge! A substantial portion of these donations was used to fund the 2020 Grant Program. Despite these difficult and trying times, the Catholic Foundation was still able to award nearly $100,000 to 35 deserving Catholic parishes, schools and organizations. A listing of this year’s grants will be posted soon, so please visit our website again to review this information. May the Lord bless all who so generously responded to this special appeal.
