Funds of the Idaho Catholic Foundation, Inc.
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.
