Sir Daniel Donohue Fund

Affectionately known as “Sir Daniel” to his friends and family, Daniel Donohue served as chairman of the Dan Murphy Foundation for more than 40 years. He was a strong proponent of Catholic schools and programs for the poor, was essential to the construction of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, and was a passionate patron of the arts. This fund, in his memory, supports Catholic programs throughout the Archdiocese that are most in need.
