Why Give?

The Foundation encourages Catholics to be faithful stewards of the resources entrusted to them by a loving God. It offers Catholics an opportunity to share in the mission of the Church beyond their own lifetime. Foundation gifts are prudently invested to earn new monies, which are professionally managed to develop a permanent and flexible funding source for the future work of the Church.

You can effectively manage and distribute your estate by taking advantage of charitable giving. Charitable giving is nothing more than giving back to God and those in need some of that which God entrusted to us during our lifetime. The Christian Steward makes an orderly disposition of his or her worldly possessions at the time of one’s death. Hence, the good steward has a prudent estate plan in place.

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."
