How We Help

We help donors support their chosen causes, and parishes and Catholic agencies grow their assets.

Call Mary Ellen Markowski to ask about starting a fund:



  • Everyone, no matter where they are in life, has an obligation to improve the world. Find a place where you can help out. Call it giving back or paying forward or whatever you want to call it; it’s part of the deal.
    —Judy Keyes, Board Member and Community Volunteer
  • The effective way in which funds are managed, the history of success in performance returns, and the clear and consistent manner in which financial reports are communicated are all signs that The Catholic Community Foundation truly is a ‘good and faithful steward’ of our parish’s treasure.
    —The Most Reverend Jeffrey R. Haines, Rector and Pastor The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, Auxiliary Bishop of Milwaukee
