About The Catholic Foundation of Northern Colorado
The Catholic Foundation of Northern Colorado was founded in 1998 as a framework for current and deferred gifts and endowments to Catholic organizations, primarily in support of long-term financial needs of parishes, schools and ministries within the Archdiocese of Denver. In 2015, the Foundation expanded its efforts to provide centralized marketing, communications and fund-raising services to eight ministries of the Archdiocese of Denver under a new sole-membership nonprofit corporation, The Catholic Foundation Alliance. These ministries include The Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal, Bishop Machebeuf High School, Catholic Charities, Centro San Juan Diego, Holy Family High School, Redemptoris Mater Seminary, Saint John Vianney Theological Seminary and Seeds of Hope Trust.
