    What People Say

    What People Say

    • In forming our Fund for Addiction and Recovery Education at CFGP, we hope to work with them to raise awareness about substance use disorders and the impact of addiction on families and on our community. For too long, addiction and behavioral health issues have been avoided, ignored, or denied. Our fund with CFGP will support and highlight efforts by Catholic organizations and community partners to address issues of prevention, stigma, treatment, and recovery throughout the Diocese.

    • Building a Bridge to Uganda is honored to be associated with The Catholic Foundation of Greater Philadelphia, as we continue to develop our missionary work in the jungles of East Africa. We were particularly attracted by the opportunity, presented by CFGP, to become involved with other like-minded Catholic organizations, as we all pursue our missions of bringing Jesus to the world, at home and abroad, while investing ‘Catholic’.

    • Pope Benedict XVI called on the laity to be "truly co-responsible for the being and activity of the Church." By opening a fund at CFGP we have expressed our commitment to support the Catholic Church both now and in the future. However, we are not called to write a blank check for the Church. A fund at CFGP allows us to be more intentional about giving and insures accountability for our financial gifts.

    • The Saint Lucy School community is so grateful to the Catholic Foundation of Greater Philadelphia for their efforts on our behalf. Their sincere interest in our current work with students who are visually impaired, as well as our dreams to serve a wider population of students with vision loss, has been an overwhelming gift to us. Thank you for helping us continue to serve our students in a loving, nurturing, Catholic School environment.
