Catholic Philanthropy Network

Together, we go farther.


Stronger Together

FADICA is a Catholic philanthropic network of foundations and donors supporting Catholic activities and initiatives. United by shared values, we go farther together, multiplying impact through shared learning, engagement with Catholic leadership, and collaboration.

“FADICA offers project ideas we have taken on that started at FADICA, mentors who helped me structure the foundation, and companions and friends who encourage me in my work.”

Executive Director at Richard and Maude Ferry Foundation

Catholic Social Tradition and Philanthropy

Catholic giving is rooted in the gospel tradition and values and the Church, the community of believers who evidence faith, hope, and love in their daily lives.

“Discern the ever changing needs of the Catholic community and broader society … [and] in a particular way to be attentive to the needs of the poor, especially those who live on the peripheries of society and are often unseen and forgotten.”
