Why the Catholic Foundation?

Why choose to work with the Catholic Foundation of North Georgia

Perhaps the most important reason to choose the Catholic Foundation of North Georgia is because we are Catholic. We understand the stewardship and spirituality of the Catholic heritage. We understand and respect your desire to support the Church, and provide a legacy of faith for future generations. The Catholic Foundation helps Catholic causes and Catholic needs.

The Catholic Foundation provides professional planned giving services for all levels of givers. The Foundation assists any parishioners with planning gifts, even those who do not consider themselves wealthy or philanthropists. We have found that many of our gifts come from people who work hard all of their lives and want their assets to benefit their church and their community. We serve these donors with our gift planning, and we also serve those who have been blessed with greater assets and wealth.

The Catholic Foundation of North Georgia is managed by an independent top-quality Board of lay leaders, clergy, and the Archbishop, that ensures the professional investment management of the endowments. Gifts given to the Catholic Foundation are pooled with those other endowment funds to provide better buying power in the investment world, thereby allowing us to enjoy lower investment management fees and better investment opportunities.

You can be sure that your intent as a donor is protected forever. We provide the professional administration to ensure timely reporting and compliance with all legal requirements.

Grants and distributions are awarded only to organizations in conformity with Catholic teaching and the majority of the funds are invested in accordance with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' Socially Responsible Investment Guidelines.

When one is thinking of leaving a legacy – a gift in perpetuity – be assured that the Catholic Foundation will handle it in a manner consistent with your values and wishes.
