Give from your Heart
It has been four years since The Catholic Foundation of Greater Philadelphia (CFGP) began serving the needs of our community, and through support from individuals like you, we have been able to accomplish a great deal.
We have created initiatives and partnerships with Catholic organizations throughout the region to help impact the community. We have learned the needs of our beneficiaries by taking the time to visit and recognize them through our Community Impact Award program. We have provided grants to organizations so that they can fulfill their mission. We have provided funds to support the many vital works of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. But most importantly, in these last four years we’ve learned how to truly live out our motto, “At the heart of charity is love.”
We would not be able to spread love and charity to those who need it most without the support of so many. On behalf of everyone here at CFGP, and all of those who have benefited through us, thank you. Thank you for supporting us in our efforts to make a positive impact and better the lives of others.
Please take a look at some of our philanthropic works, and consider making a gift to CFGP so that we may continue our support of so many essential organizations, and grow our impact throughout the region.
Thank you for showing us your charitable heart.
