Cath Founcation logo_Color_Vertical (2)Bishop Joseph Brunini and 23 visionary Catholic leaders from throughout the Diocese of Jackson established the Catholic Foundation in 1973. Their enthusiasm was focused on creating a way to encourage and assist the people of the diocese to provide for the future financial security of their parishes, schools, and other organizations under the auspices of the diocese.

Since then, the Foundation has grown both monetarily and in the number of endowments under its management. Today, the Catholic Foundation manages 399 trust funds and insurance policies with more than $54 million in assets.

The Bishop and the Board of Directors preside over the Foundation. The Investment Committee, made up of experienced and knowledgeable business community leaders, manages the funds entrusted to it using strict investment policies.

Our mission is to create ways for our parishioners and friends to leave legacies that will perpetuate a strong sense of Catholic values that will influence lives for generations to come.
