The Catholic Communal Fund of the Archdiocese of New York is a powerful tool that allows you to create a charitable fund in your name, your family's name, or that of a loved one. You can then make recommendations on how your gift will be invested and how it is to be distributed over time to charities both within and beyond the Catholic faith. In essence, it functions much like a private family foundation with none of the associated costs, bureaucracy, tax regulations and paperwork. The Catholic Communal Fund enables you to realize optimum tax benefits and achieve greater impact with your charitable dollars.
