A hungry child who needs food to eat. A family struggling to avoid eviction. A young man who dreams of becoming a priest. Since its founding 10 years ago, The Catholic Foundation of Central Florida through parishioner support has raised more than $373 million to help thousands of people in these and similar situations. The Foundation’s work funds 27 ministries and transforms lives in the Diocese of Orlando.

Along the way, The Foundation has achieved prominence. It has won the International Catholic Stewardship Council award for stewardship excellence five years in a row. This recognition reflects years of success.
