Thank you for visiting FADICA and a warm welcome from the FADICA community!  We are glad you are here.

FADICA is a vital peer network of foundations and donors that was launched in 1976 by a small group of Catholic philanthropists who came together to share, learn, and explore common interests together. In our fifth decade of faith in philanthropy, FADICA has grown to be a foremost philanthropic organization, resource and catalyst serving a vital Catholic Church and Catholic activities.

  • If you are a foundation leader or Catholic philanthropist, you will find a vibrant community of peers and leading donors who learn, share, and imagine together the most innovative ways to support a vibrant Church and flourishing communities. Discover all that FADICA has to offer, and contact us to learn more about membership.
  • If you are a current FADICA member, you can access resources, download conference proceedings, and connect to your other exclusive services through the Members Only portal.
  • If you are a Catholic parishioner, ministry or institutional leader visiting us, did you know we publish the only funding database created specifically for Catholic organizations?  We also publish and commission research and resources at the intersection of Catholicism and generosity, giving and philanthropy.

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 Catholic philanthropy and a vital Church in responding to Pope Francis’ call.
