History

The Catholic Community Foundation of Northeast Indiana was formed to provide for the financial future of our diocese and provide ways for individuals and families to invest in the work of Christ throughout the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend. The Catholic Community Foundation was established in 1994 as a 501(c) (3) tax-exempt entity and receives current and deferred major gifts and endowments.  Contributions to the Catholic Community Foundation are deductible under Section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code.

The Catholic Community Foundation serves donors by matching their philanthropic vision with grants to the ministries, programs and institutions that best serve their dreams for a better world. The Foundation provides an easy way to give generously and responsibly during your lifetime and as part of your estate plan. When you are ready to invest in the work of Christ, think carefully about your legacy and what inspires you.  A gift to the Catholic Community Foundation is an investment in the future of the Church, and a very real way to express gratitude to God for a lifetime of blessings.

Whatever your charitable goals, the Catholic Community Foundation of Northeast Indiana can help you develop a unique plan to achieve them.  By making thoughtful choices now, you support the work of Christ in perpetuity.
