FADICA’s 48th Annual Meeting & Symposium

Catholic Education and Formation: K-12 & Higher Ed
New Orleans, Louisiana | February 21 - 23, 2024

Join FADICA as we travel to the Big Easy for an expansive exploration of Catholic education and formation! Since FADICA’s founding in 1976, Catholic education and formation have played a vital role in members’ philanthropy and FADICA’s initiatives.

Our Annual Meeting and Symposium brings together FADICA’s peer network of donors and foundation leaders with other inspiring and innovative leaders in Catholic education. FADICA members and guests will learn, dialogue and imagine the next generation of Catholic education and formation. We are partnering with and visiting Xavier University, America’s only Catholic Historically Black College and University, founded by St. Katharine Drexel (also the patron saint of philanthropy). 

We hope you will be part of this pinnacle moment for Catholic philanthropy’s co-creation of the future of Catholic education and formation. If you are not a FADICA member and would like to be part of this unique opportunity, please contact our Membership and Outreach Officer, lmcgregor@fadica.org.

There is a creativity and a dynamism that happens when you are with peers from different parts of the country who are engaged in supporting different kinds of ministries and apostolates. That creativity is very helpful in our own work as funders.

I took this job because of FADICA.  I saw this was something I could do that was aligned with my passions and gifts. FADICA has continued to offer that type of formation to me - in terms of 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.
