Becoming a Member

FADICA welcomes foundations and donors who support Catholic initiatives, ministries and institutions and who are eager to share, connect, and exchange within a private network of Catholic philanthropists. Applications are accepted throughout the year for consideration by the Board of Directors. Donors and Foundation Leaders interested in FADICA membership, please contact Alicia Bondanella Simon.

FADICA membership includes exclusive access to a full package of benefits, services, programs, symposia, experts, and research tailored to the specific interests and needs of Catholic philanthropists. In FADICA, you will be connected to a group of likeminded peers who share common faith and a uniquely Catholic spirituality of giving. FADICA members are driven by a desire to create a better world, especially for the vulnerable and those who live in poverty. FADICA membership helps you expand and deepen the impact of your charitable giving by bringing you the most innovative and cutting edge social and intellectual capital needed to achieve your faith-based funding goals.

“We are thrilled to be part of a dynamic philanthropic community at FADICA committed to serving the
