The Catholic Foundation

The Catholic Foundation of the Diocese of Lansing was established in 2016 to serve parishes, schools and other ministries by stewarding financial resources, fostering giving and assisting you in providing for the Church’s long-term financial needs.

The Catholic Foundation is a separate and distinct non-profit organization under the guidance and care of Bishop Boyea. Its board of directors is charged with assuring the Foundation’s transparency in operations and accountability to the people of the diocese.

The Catholic Foundation seeks to serve you, and to further the Church’s spiritual, educational and charitable mission by helping donors achieve their charitable and financial planning goals within the context of the long-term financial needs of our parishes, schools and other Catholic ministries. The Foundation partners with you in identifying and developing gift and estate planning opportunities, and utilizes endowed funds and other vehicles — such as reserve funds and capital campaigns — in support of the financial well-being of our parishes, schools and ministries.
