Socially Responsible Investing and Catholic Social Teaching

Hello and Happy New Year to everyone. We are thrilled to announce that 2023 marks the 10th anniversary of The Catholic Foundation of Greater Philadelphia. When we started the Foundation in 2013, it was our dream to build an organization that would not only help people all over the greater Philadelphia area but also accomplish this mission with the love and intention of the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Our founding Board members are a dedicated group of Philadelphia Catholics who wanted to help preserve the goodness of our Faith. What started as a dream 10 years ago has turned into a thriving 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation.

Founded on the principles of transparency and accountability and built on the teachings of Jesus Christ, CFGP is now the leading resource for Catholic and faith-based philanthropy in the Philadelphia area. We work with donors to manage their charitable funds by helping them choose investment opportunities that meet their individual philanthropic goals.

Since 2013, CFGP has distributed over $19M from funds established with us. Additionally, over the years, through our nonprofit consulting services, CFGP has expanded to include support and direction with growing and sustaining ministries at parishes and Catholic organizations. Through this collaboration, our nonprofit consulting services have raised more than $31M.  By assisting both groups, CFGP has helped multiply the impact of Catholic organizations all over the Greater Philadelphia region.


Over the next year, as we celebrate our 10th Anniversary, we will be highlighting people and events which have shaped The CFGP into the organization it is today.

From our Board of Trustees and our team of professionals to the local Catholic community and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, many hands have helped to shape CFGP.

We are stronger together, and the community impact we’ve been able to make over our 10 years of operation has been made possible because of people like you. We are looking forward to sharing our stories with you.

It is exciting to think about what our next ten years will bring. With the Lord as our beacon to light the way, we are confident every day that the future will be filled with kindness, compassion, generosity, and hope.
