“Miss no single opportunity of making some small sacrifice,
here by a smiling look, there by a kindly word;
always doing the smallest right and doing it all for love.”

St. Thérèse of Lisieux, the Little Flower

Celebrating Over a Quarter Century as “The Giving Arm of the Diocese”

2022 marks over a quarter century of service to the Diocese of Pueblo. The Catholic Foundation embraces the New Year: It is an opportunity to set ambitious giving goals, to provide meaningful assistance and to establish lasting relationships in our community. Every year we recommit to providing support to Catholic parishes, Catholic organizations and Catholic schools as they minister to the faithful. To date, the Catholic Foundation has distributed over $2,000,000 in grant awards throughout our vast diocese. Our outreach 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, and 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.

The Catholic Foundation Distributed Over $123,000 in Grant Awards in 2021

Last year, thanks to the generosity of our donors and their commitment to our mission, the Catholic Foundation satisfied thirty-six (36) grant requests from parishes, missions, Catholic schools and other Catholic organizations operating within the borders of our diocese.

In addition to the $123,000 in grant awards, an additional $50,500 in humanitarian aid was granted to organizations serving the poor, the marginalized, the hungry and the unborn; These grants were made possible by a generous bequest from Msgr. Howard Delaney. Please visit our Grants page to review a complete list of grants awards. Visit our Grants page to learn more about our grant funding.
