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:
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.
To invite great generosity, safeguard all gifts entrusted to our care and enable our parishes, schools and ministries to advance the mission of our Church, throughout the Diocese of Fall River.
