Frequently Asked Questions

The Catholic Funding Guide has helped Catholic organizations connect with funders for more than 35 years. The Guide is a project of FADICA (Foundations and Donors Interested in Catholic Activities), the leading philanthropic peer network serving as a catalyst for a vital Catholic Church, Catholic ministries, and the common good.

The 1,800+ funders in our database have a history of supporting Catholic organizations with a wide variety of causes, from social services to education to evangelization and beyond. We regularly add new funders, continuing to expand the connections available to our subscribers.

We obtain our information from a variety of sources, most notably IRS 990 filings. We also have direct relationships with funders who provide their information directly to the Catholic Funding Guide. Many of the funders in the Guide do not have websites, and some are difficult to find through public sources such as Form 990s.

The Catholic Funding Guide is a great way for funders to connect with great Catholic organizations, expand your reach, cut down on grant applications that are not a good fit, and grow your funding network.

Funders can claim their profile in our funder database to provide grantseekers with updated contact and grant information. Providing updated information helps grantseekers determine if and how to reach out or submit a proposal. It also enables funders to search for other funders who may be interested in partnering.

Amplify is a feature of the Catholic Funding Guide designed to streamline the connection between funders and grantseekers. Grantseekers post projects in need of funding, and funders search and review projects for ones that match their interests. Funders can then communicate directly with grant seekers who post projects on Amplify.

Catholic organizations submit projects in need of funding. Funders can search by area of interest, location, and more. Amplify can automatically email you when a new project aligns with your interests. When funders identify a project of interest, they can reach out directly to the organization for more information, or to invite them to apply for a grant.
