Helping Catholics Make

a Lasting Difference.

Giving Societies

In thanksgiving for our generous donors, the Catholic Foundation has established legacy societies to recognize and honor the Catholics in our community.  These donors – who are models of faith and commitment – have given or pledged lasting gifts to the Catholic community.  If your charitable plans include a gift that will one day benefit our Catholic community, please let us know so that we can include you.

The Founders Society

Original members of the Founders Society contributed their leadership and the initial funds creating the Catholic Foundation of North Georgia.

The Founders Society continues to grow with donors who give at least $5,000 over time to the Catholic Foundation Endowment Fund.  Gifts to this fund help fund and support our mission.

The Deo Gratias Society

“Deo Gratias” is Latin for “Thanks be to God.”  The Deo Gratias Society was established to recognize individuals who have made a planned gift in their will or estate plan to the Catholic Foundation, any of its funds, a parish, a Catholic school, a Catholic organization, or the archdiocese.  The Deo Gratias Society also includes donors who have given $5,000 or more during their lifetime to an existing fund or who create a new fund.
