The Catholic Foundation of Northeast Kansas, a separate 501 (c) (3) organization established in 1989, has become a key source for education, support, and training that helps ensure the continuation of the mission of the parishes and organizations across the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas through effective, ethical leadership.

The Catholic Foundation works with donors and their advisors to design gifts to fit their individual needs while minimizing taxes to maximize the impact of that person’s gift.  Whether you are simply looking for bequest language, contributing to a Donor Advised Fund, or considering a gift annuity to provide lifetime income, you are in the right place.

The Catholic Foundation also helps set the pace for investment and planned giving education and service to individuals, parishes, schools, and institutions concerned about the assets that will be available to further the mission of the Catholic Church in Northeast Kansas, both today and in the future. We do this by helping these parishes, schools, and other Catholic institutions in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas create and grow endowments and philanthropic funds.
