Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Foundation's primary goal is to serve as the community foundation for all Catholic charitable ministries. This includes serving as a fund depository, grant allocation agent, and marketing entity for any and all long-term gifts to support these ministries.

The Foundation's secondary goal is to serve as a planned giving resource and advocate for all Catholic charitable ministries through a variety of media outreach vehicles and by providing free, on-site information seminars to the general public.

Strategies to accomplish these goals include the following:
-one-to-one educational meetings with donors and endowment beneficiaries and prospective agency beneficiaries;
-publishing an Annual Report, periodic digital and print newsletter communications and social media;
-distributing information periodically to diocesan ministries about various Foundation resources including suggested bulletin messaging, one-to-one donor cultivation and solicitation on behalf of the ministry; and
-scheduling on-site information seminars
-seek engagement in the civic community for opportunities to be created.

Full time staff consists of an Executive Director, Executive Assistant and part-time major gifts/planned gifts officer. All three staff members have a combined 80 years professional advancement and legal experience being utilized in service to our diocesan Catholic ministries. Similarly, The Foundation has retained a marketing consultant to develop and maintain a website and social media presence.

The Executive Director actively seeks out public gatherings and professional civic organizations in which to be visible and participatory.

On a separate level, the volunteer Board of Directors serve as good-will ambassadors to The Foundation who advance the goals of the organization and provide 100% financial commitment in the form of annual and endowed gifts to The Foundation.

While in its first year of existence, Foundation staff have attended to all items of infrastructure (securing a business location, creating and adopting operational protocols and policies) and have been begun creating a website and social media presence.
The following specific strategy results have been recorded:
- visited 51 donors, endowment beneficiaries and prospective new agencies with one-to-one educational meetings ;
- published and disseminated 2 informational newsletters to 15,000 households
- engaged counsel to create a website and social media presence
- contracted for 1 advertisement (half page ad) in a magazine with a circulation of over 200,000
-distributed 3 sets of bulletin messages to schools and parishes and one E-Alert to 90 parishes (regarding IRA QCD tax legislation)
-conducted 13 on-site Wills seminars
- created 5 new endowments totaling $480,000 and 53 additional gifts benefiting 21 existing endowments.
