Supporting Greater Boston’s greatest needs

Service. Faith. Education. Health.

Caring for our neighbors

Guided by Catholic social teaching, the Catholic Community Fund (CCF) supports nonprofit organizations dedicated to the common good and the dignity of all people, regardless of religion, race, or background.


Supporting SERVICE

There are nearly 4.5 million people living in the 144 cities and towns within the Archdiocese of Boston. Almost 10 percent of those people live below the poverty line, which makes robust social services an essential undertaking.

CCF works with organizations, ministries, and parishes that provide food, shelter, safety, and compassion to those in need.

“In addition to being a house of worship, our Cathedral serves as a center for social justice outreach and a hub for providing spiritual support for those taking refuge and seeking help.”
Msgr. Kevin O’Leary
Pastor of the Cathedral of the Holy Cross

Supporting EDUCATION

Catholic schools prepare students for a successful life built on a foundation of faith. Children are taught to care for one another, foster a relationship with God, and believe in their inherent gifts and talents. Especially in under-served communities, a Catholic education can transform the lives of young people.

CCF offers scholarships for students who cannot afford a Catholic education and various learning and personal growth initiatives for both students and faculty.

Supporting HEALTH

CCF oversees the Catholic Health Foundation, which provides financial support to nonprofit organizations within the Archdiocese of Boston that provide healthcare services consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Since it was formed in 2013, the Catholic Health Foundation has awarded 529 grants totaling nearly $6 million.

“We used to have dedicated days for prenatal appointments, but women are so excited to get hooked up to the machine and see their babies, that they come in every day of the week to be seen!”
Jocelyn Bresnahan
President of Saint Rock Haiti Foundation

Supporting FAITH

The Archdiocese of Boston is the fourth largest in the United States, serving 1.8 million Catholics. With over 250 parishes, three seminaries, more than 500 active and senior priests, and thousands of women religious, the Catholic faith in Greater Boston is strong and far-reaching.

CCF supports parishes, individuals, organizations, and ministries that allow Catholics to practice and explore their faith, ensuring that the Church remains vibrant for generations to come.
