History of the NE PA Catholic FoundationIn 2013 a group of Catholic community leaders gathered together to discuss starting a foundation that would provide Catholic institutions in our region needed funding so they could remain sustainable over the long run.

The Catholic Foundation is designed to manage assets through endowment and donor designated funds that generate perpetual income and provide financial stability for Catholic parishes, educational institutions, Catholic cemeteries and non-profit organizations.

Formed in 2013, the Catholic Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity and a separate legal entity from the Diocese of Allentown. The Foundation is not an office of the Diocese or under the jurisdiction or control of the Bishop of Allentown.
