Total Granted Since Inception


The ultimate measure of our success as an organization is the amount that we are able to grant in support of our local Catholic Community. The Foundation grants from endowments designated for specific organizations or ministries, endowments that fund our competitive Spring Grant Cycle, and from Donor Advised Funds.


 Why Give to the Foundation?

The Catholic Community Foundation manages endowment funds for the benefit of Catholic organizations and ministries in Santa Clara County.

These endowments are invested and managed so that they will create FOREVER VALUE for our local Catholic community for the next 100 years and beyond.
