Who Receives Grants

“To build up the Body of Christ.”
– Ephesians 4:12

The Catholic Foundation of North Georgia grants programs support the ministries of the Archdiocese, its parishes, Catholic schools, Catholic nonprofits, and other worthy nonprofits located in the Archdiocese of Atlanta.

Organizations which have received General grants from The Catholic Foundation are Catholic Charities, the St. Vincent de Paul Society, the annual Eucharistic Congress, numerous Catholic schools and parishes, Ignatius House, the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, and local nonprofits. Purposes for the grants have included: helping the poor and homeless, providing services to the elderly, youth ministries, tuition assistance, buying smart boards for schools, assisting with food programs for the hungry, Hispanic outreach, religious education, pilgrimages for youth and spiritual retreats, training for priests, and renovations of retreat facilities.

Other grants are provided out of designated endowment funds or donor-advised funds. Although the majority of these grants are given to Catholic organizations and those located in the geographic area of the Archdiocese, some of the grantees may be located elsewhere, and reflect the interests of the donors.

All grants must be in accordance with Catholic teaching and are only made to 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations.

Please look at the Catholic Foundation's annual reports and press releases, located on the “News” tab, to see exactly which organizations received grants from the Foundation and the purpose of the grants.
