Give Where You Live! Colorado Gives Day, December 8

Colorado Gives Day is just a few weeks away, but you don’t have to wait! Donate now and help nonprofit organizations at work in your neighborhood. Simply visit and choose the Catholic Foundation to receive your contribution. Funds will be used to support the Catholic Foundation Grant program which helps Catholic parishes, missions and schools in our diocese with funding for:

  • Religious formation programs: new textbooks for parishes that cannot afford replacements, audio visual equipment to support digital formation and VBS experiences for entire communities.
  • Youth retreat opportunities such as Steubenville of the Rockies, the Southwest Catholic Youth Conference, the National Catholic Youth Conference, the Pueblo Youth Ministry festival and Totus Tuus.
  • Newman Club, High School Catholic clubs.
  • Adult formation programs and RCIA to continue to nurture the faith journey of adults.
  • Catholic School tuition assistance.

In addition, thanks to the Msgr. Delaney Humanitarian fund, the Catholic Foundation is able to provide aide to worthy community organizations that assist the poor, the needy and the marginalized, such as the Pueblo Rescue Mission, Homeward Bound transitional homeless shelter in Grand Junction, plus food banks throughout southern Colorado.

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.
