The Catholic Foundation Makes Grant to Catholic Charities

Bishop Shelton Fabre and the Catholic Foundation of South Louisiana Board of Directors recently made distributions from established endowments within the Foundation. The Catholic Foundation is a community foundation established to promote philanthropy, empower priests, and inspire our community. Each year through the support of many gracious donors, endowments for our church parishes, schools and diocesan ministries continues to grow.

These endowments have been invested and managed by the Catholic Foundation with the intent to make an annual distribution to each beneficiary ensuring a consistent annual support of their mission. Members of the Board elected to make distributions to ministries with endowments including $62,114 to Catholic Charities.

“From adoptions, Foster Grandparent program and from parish social ministry outreach to our three Good Samaritan Food Banks, Catholic Charities provides compassionate service and empowers families to weather crises and improve their lives through one of our thirteen programs. The Catholic Charities Endowment with the Catholic Foundation is critical to our ability to offer these programs. CFSL donors partner with us in making a difference in peoples’ lives,” said Rob Gorman, director of Catholic Charities in the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux.
