Catholic Foundation Grants Program – Built on the foundation of the love of Christ.

Supporting the parishes, schools, and ministries of the Diocese of St. Augustine through grantmaking is critical to our mission of building a Christ-centered future for the good works of the Church in North Florida. Each year Catholic entities from our diocese are invited to submit funding requests. These applications are fully vetted by the Grants Committee of our Board of Directors, ensuring the programs align with Church teachings.

Thanks to the generosity of our faith-filled donors, the Catholic Foundation awarded $100,000 in grants from the unrestricted fund, for the 2019-2020 fiscal year.
