FADICA members have access to a wide variety of FADICA programs and services designed to support individual donors and foundations and explore the priority areas of focus shared among Catholic philanthropists. FADICA‘s member programs stimulate conversation, dialogue and action through a variety of platforms and an extraordinary selection of programs and events.
FADICA convenes its members twice yearly at the Annual Membership Meeting and Symposium and the Fall Retreat. In addition, FADICA provides opportunities for regional or co-sponsored gatherings, site visits to national best practices, or delegations. This top-rate symposia series features leaders and experts in philanthropy and in the Church, explores priority issues of concern, and utilizes dynamic program design to support optimal learning and networking.

The Member Dialogues, a call/webinar series, connects members with Catholic leaders and diverse experts to discuss key issues related to Catholic philanthropy, current events and the spirituality of giving. This easy-to-use platform supports discussion, networking, and collaboration on critical issues – all from the convenience of members’ desks.
Nex Gen Engagement
It is an exceptional time for engaging young Catholics in philanthropy! FADICA is developing new resources for foundations eager to learn how to best engage younger generations in faith-based giving. FADICA has successfully launched and entered into its third year of the Philanthropy Leadership Intern Program, in which college and graduate level students and Cristo Rey high school students explore the world of philanthropy and nonprofit work within a Catholic context.
Member Affinity Groups
Member Affinity and Working Groups offer a portal for impactful action and powerful exchange. The groups regularly convene at symposia and by phone to share best practices, analyze new research, dialogue with thought leaders and expertise among the group, and generate ideas for impacting the issues most important to FADICA members: Catholic Schools, Church Vitality/Women Religious, Anti-Human Trafficking, and International Philanthropy.
