USCCB Bishops Emergency Disaster Fund

Our prayers go out to families who have lost loved ones, homes and businesses due to the devastating impact of Hurricane Laura and the wildfires in the West.

The Catholic Bishops of the United States have established the USCCB Bishops Emergency Disaster Fund to support these disaster relief efforts and those that may happen in the near future.  The funds collected in this special collection will be used for humanitarian needs, long-term recovery and Church needs arising from these calamities. These monies will be used to support both Catholic Charities USA and Catholic Relief Services, the official relief agencies of the U.S. Catholic Church, as they respond to immediate emergency needs; and the USCCB for pastoral and reconstruction needs of the Church.

To support these relief efforts you can donate at the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Green Bay at www.catholicfoundationgb.org.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration and response.  Please make your gift today!

Lord, help me to follow the example of Jesus’ generosity and to excel in the grace of giving.



Seminarian Collection Exceeds $1,000,000

The annual Seminarian Collection supports men who have been called to the priesthood.  The spiritual formation of seminarians costs about $40,000 each year.  The Diocese anticipates spending more than $1,000,000 this year for tuition, room and board, health insurance, spiritual and pastoral programs and more to prepare these men on their journey to the priesthood.

Make your gift today.  These men are our Hope for the Future.  Please Help them Today!



Impacting Lives for More Than 20 Years

Since its founding in 1997, the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Green Bay has distributed more than $35,000,000 to support Church ministries and services for the spiritual, educational and social needs of God’s people.

We can help you:

  • Make a gift that immediately makes a difference
  • Make a gift that both gives you a life income and helps others
  • Make a gift that will help others later through deferred giving
  • Make a gift to a new or existing fund that
    benefits a parish or ministry

Whether you are interested in assisting a ministry of the Church, educating our seminarians, remembering the Church in your will, helping your parish or the Church in many other ways bring Christ to thousands of people throughout Northeastern Wisconsin, the Catholic Foundation can assist you.

Each gift helps. Thank you on behalf of everyone you are assisting.
