Thank you for visiting FADICA and a warm welcome from the FADICA community!  We are glad you are here, and look forward to serving you and your Catholic philanthropy in a meaningful and impactful way.

FADICA was launched in 1976 by a small group of Catholic philanthropists who came together to share, learn, and explore common interests together. As we embark on our fifth decade of faith in philanthropy, FADICA is a vital peer network and catalyst, and the foremost philanthropic organization focused on Catholic activities.

  • If you are thinking of becoming a FADICA member, you will find a vibrant community of peers and leading philanthropists who learn, share, and imagine together the most innovative ways to support a vibrant Church and thriving communities. Discover all that FADICA has to offer, and contact us to join.
  • If you are a current FADICA member, you can review membership or board minutes, download conference proceedings and access your other exclusive services through the Members Only portal.
  • If you are a Catholic nonprofit or institution visiting us, did you know we publish the only funding database created specifically for Catholic organizations?

In Pope Francis’ special message to FADICA on its 40th Anniversary, he asked FADICA to “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.”

With deep joy, FADICA looks forward to serving members and Catholic philanthropy in responding to Pope Francis’ call, and in compassionately and creatively meeting the needs of our Church and our world.
