About Us

For 40 years, FADICA has served as a dynamic and catalytic philanthropic network committed to supporting Catholic activities and initiatives (especially those that strengthen the Church and aid the poor). At FADICA, members find a space to gather with peers to learn, network, share grant-making tools and ideas, interact with Catholic leadership, and reflect on the spirituality of philanthropy.

“FADICA has helped me learn first-hand about the challenges and opportunities that my fellow Catholic grantmakers face. Building important relationships and a strong network through FADICA has helped me and the Sisters of Charity Foundation be more successful with our work.”
