Strengthening our Catholic community today, tomorrow, and forever.

Because We Believe

Donors work with the Catholic Foundation of West Michigan to amplify their giving impact and manifest God’s love in the world.


  1. They know that strategic, values-aligned giving through the Foundation best supports the long-term needs of our Church and its ministries.
  2. They understand that giving through the Foundation provides more opportunities to connect them to the Works of Mercy being performed by our many Catholic nonprofits.
  3. They want parishes, schools, and ministries to thrive without competing against each other.


Every year, the Catholic Foundation distributes millions of dollars in grants to charitable organizations that promote human dignity and share Christ’s love, helping build up His kingdom on earth.

We invite you to join us, give wholeheartedly, and build a lasting and profound legacy of generosity for today, tomorrow, and forever.
