Endowment Funds of the Capital Campaign

Our Diocesan Capital Campaign, Building On Our Past, Envisioning Our Future, begun by Bishop Michael Driscoll in 2012, raised over $13,000,000 and concluded at the end of 2017. These funds will help us renew, strengthen, and sustain our ministries in service to each other and to those who are most in need. They will also help sustain our Catholic community of Idaho for future generations.
 
Although the pledge portion of the Capital Campaign has ended, the funds created by the Campaign continue on and will continue to need your support. Your donations are always welcomed.
 
The endowment funds of the Capital Campaign are:
  • On-going Education & Formation of Clergy Endowment
  • Catholic Education & Faith Formation Endowment
  • Charitable Works of the Church - Local Parish Endowment 
  • Charitable Works of the Church - Catholic Charities of Idaho Endowment
  • Father Donald J. Riffle Endowment for the Care of Priests

In 2017, the Foundation awarded its first grants from the Capital Campaign endowment funds. Automatic awards go to the On-going Education & Formation of Clergy Endowment, the catholic education portion of the Catholic Education & Faith Formation Endowment, the Charitable Works of the Church - Catholic Charities of Idaho Endowment, and the Father Donald J. Riffle Endowment for the Care of Priests.

Parishes, schools, ministries, and other organizations supported or endorsed by the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Boise may apply for grants from the Charitable Works of the Church - Local Parish Endowment and the faith formation portion of the Catholic Education & Faith Formation Endowment.
