Our Mission

Following the charitable example of Jesus Christ, The Catholic Foundation of Greater Philadelphia (CFGP) exists to serve the mission of the Catholic Church for the betterment of the lives of the people in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Specifically, it provides donors an avenue to fulfill their charitable goals through the support of projects, programs, organizations and initiatives of a Catholic nature that respond to their need to love and support others. We provide parishes, ministries, and Catholic organizations the tools and the structure to develop additional resources and support.

Grounded in best practices, and committed to the principles of transparency, accountability, operational effectiveness and clarity of purpose, The Catholic Foundation of Greater Philadelphia stewards and manages gifts from donors to ensure they are used for their intended purpose.

Charitable giving has never been so easy

We strive to bring simplicity, accountability, and transparency to our donors. And we do this through trusted partnerships along with a multitude of charitable program offerings and planned giving options in a highly-effective and user-friendly way.

We certainly understand that donors have specific charitable goals and interests. That's why we personally (and confidentially) devise a giving plan that best achieves the charitable objectives of our donors’ hearts – with matched interests and affinities supporting causes throughout the greater Philadelphia region – as well as many ways to donate from planned giving to endowments to trusts and much more.
