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

and looking forward to the next 25 years!

2020 was an unprecedented year, but now it is over. Alleluia!  And the Catholic Foundation is happy to move forward into a new year to meet new goals, to provide more assistance, and to make new friends. Last year marked a quarter of a century of service to the Diocese of Pueblo. During that time, the Catholic Foundation distributed nearly $2,000,000 in grant awards throughout our vast diocese. Our outreach to the faithful extends from the far western mountains to the eastern plains of Colorado. Today, 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.

Help us meet our $50,000 Match!

Recently, the Catholic Foundation was offered a $50,000 Matching Gift opportunity! This amazing opportunity was inspired by an anonymous donor who offered this gift to help meet the most pressing needs of parishes struggling during the coronavirus crisis. Please help us meet this match. You can make a substantial difference simply by contributing to our Matching Gift appeal, and double the value of every dollar you donate. Give today and help continue the Catholic Foundation’s legacy of giving for the next 25 years. Thank you for your faithful support.

Please visit our DONATE page to learn more about this giving opportunity. Then visit our GRANT page to see how your contributions are being put to good use throughout southern Colorado.
