Help us bring Christ and His Love to the 16-County Community of the Saint Cloud Diocese.

The Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Saint Cloud is a separate nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation, that was created as an outgrowth of now-retired Bishop John F. Kinney’s Living the Promise campaign of 2001-02. It was established as an independent, charitable foundation responsible for raising, managing, and distributing philanthropic funds to provide long term, sustainable support for the parishes, schools, agencies and life-changing ministries across the 16 counties of the Diocese of Saint Cloud. 


The Foundation has over $22 million in assets, out of which a portion generates interest that is used to support diocesan seminarian education, Catholic schools and faith formation programs. The Foundation awards annual grants through both direct distribution and via grant requests. This year, more than $211,655 was distributed to schools and parishes to assist with the ever increasing cost of tuition and to aid in updating technology and curriculum for religious education programming. 


Over 108 parishes, schools and organizations have established funds within the Catholic Foundation, including cemetery funds, seminarian funds, education funds, donor-directed, special interest, and other funds which enable them to provide support to their faith communities. 


Overall, the Foundation has given nearly $3 million toward Catholic education through schools and parish faith formation programs since its inception in 2005. 


At the Catholic Foundation, we believe that a solid Catholic education opens doors for God’s work in our diocese and beyond. We believe your support is a key to the future of our faith.  Please consider a gift to the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Saint Cloud today!
