About the Foundation


The Northern Michigan Catholic Foundation was established in 1998 by Bishop Patrick R. Cooney to benefit individual programs and ministries throughout the diocese. The Foundation is a separate non profit endowment-based organization that supports the philanthropic needs of donors who seek to make cash gifts, bequests or planned gifts in support of Catholic ministries in Northern Michigan. Individuals, parishes, schools, diocesan agencies and ministries may all establish endowment accounts within NMCF to benefit the Catholic ministry or organization closest to their hearts.
