Our Catholic Faith is built upon the strongest foundation … Jesus Christ. The building blocks of faith are gifts from generous donors who through their good stewardship support endowed funds housed in the Foundation. The interest earned on these funds, together with our prayers, will help sustain Catholic Education, Priesthood Formation, Catholic Charities, Pastoral Ministries and our Parishes well into the future.
Leaving a Legacy
You can Leave A Legacy by naming your Parish, a Catholic School, or favorite Catholic cause as benefactor when establishing a Legacy Fund in the Diocese of Youngstown Foundation. Your fund will be giving back to God and those in need some of that which God entrusted to us during our lifetime. Leave a Legacy that stands the test of time. A legacy of your faith that will serve in Jesus’ name for generations to come.
Office of Development and Stewardship
The Office of Development and Stewardship works with parishes and diocesan agencies, to promote sound fund raising practices that derive from the principles of stewardship.
Stewardship is a way of life. It challenges Catholics to be steward-disciples by using their gifts in service to God and others, while denying personal cravings for control and power. To be a good steward requires a disciplined life-style and an attitude of gratitude. The local parish continues to be the best source for inviting Catholics to be steward-disciples and "live life to the full."
