The Catholic Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts

What is the Foundation?

The Diocese of Fall River, MA has taken a step in FAITH and HOPE to formally establish an independent, charitable foundation responsible for raising, managing and distributing philanthropic funds to provide long-term, sustainable support for the parishes, schools and life-changing ministries across its Diocese.

The Catholic Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts comes as a direct outgrowth of a six-month planning process that brought together over forty women and men from across the Diocese, to serve on a taskforce and seek to discern how a Foundation may help us to fulfill God’s will for REBUILDING the Church in Southeastern, MA.

Their collective efforts resulted in a shared vision to establish a Catholic Foundation to serve and support our community of FAITH in the years ahead. The Foundation will play an active role in advancing the mission of our Church and together we will strive to:

  • Grow in our personal, living relationship with Christ, and commit to strengthening our parishes, schools and life-changing ministries
  • Lead the Church to a new experience of holiness and abundant life in Christ
  • Share God’s love for all people, giving of our time, talent and treasure in a spirit of love for the Lord.

The Foundation is incorporated as a separate 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, fully endorsed by the Diocese of Fall River and its Bishop, Most Reverend Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V. This legal structure ensures that all gifts will be used for their intended purposes and provides a level of efficiency, accountability and transparency that will earn the respect and confidence of donors as well as the pastors/parishes, schools and ministries it serves.
