We are committed to serving individuals, families, and organizations with the highest level of service, performance, and social responsibility.


To empower individuals and organizations to generate the most impact from their charitable giving and with their charitable assets.

Incorporated in 2014, the Catholic Community Foundation of Los Angeles, (CCF-LA) opened its doors for business on March 2, 2015, based on a shared dream by various Catholic stakeholders to help build and strengthen the Catholic community of Los Angeles, by providing individuals and organizations with an opportunity to invest in the long-term achievements and mission of the Church, as well as the many charitable institutions that are closely aligned with our mission. As a tax-exempt public charity, we support philanthropy and are dedicated to improving the quality of life of the communities we serve.

Our mission embraces our values through a community of faith and love in oneness with the Catholic Church throughout the world. The values include upholding the dignity of life for all, working to eliminate poverty, and helping to remove the barriers that divide people in large, complex, and multicultural societies such as Southern California. This mission is carried out through the sustainability of parishes, schools, sacramental life, and vocations for all religious, plus community outreach and service to other organizations that are closely aligned to these goals.

Recognizing that one size does not fit all, the Catholic Community Foundation of Los Angeles is committed to providing an array of charitable funds that meet the philanthropic goals of our clients. We can create customized fund solutions, and we work with all clients to understand their goals and financial situations so that we can recommend solutions to fit their needs.

As a Catholic community foundation, we operate in both a regulated, transparent financial industry and a faith-based environment. We are committed to serving individuals, families, and organizations with the highest level of service, performance, and social responsibility.

A day of great joy – four new auxiliary bishops for Los Angeles!

(L-R) Auxiliary Bishop Albert Bahhuth, Auxiliary Bishop Fr. Brian Nunes, Auxiliary Bishop Fr. Slawomir Szkredka, Auxiliary Bishop Fr. Matthew Elshoff

September 23 was a day of celebration, hope, and happiness for Los Angeles as four bishops were ordained to serve the Archdiocese. These four men are great priests that have been elevated to auxiliary bishop positions in the largest archdiocese in our country. Each of these new bishops knows the depth and breadth of this vast, multiculture three-county area that serves over 4.5 million Catholics. Archbishop José Gomez was the proud presider over the ordinations of

     Auxiliary Bishop Fr. Brian Nunes

Tania and I attended the historic ordination with more priests in attendance than we could count! Many leaders in the Archdiocese, parishioners, and family and friends of the auxiliary bishops added their support and encouragement. I attended the Vespers the night before, a solemn prayer service preparing for the ordinations. 

The Cathedral staff, choir and volunteers produced seamless and on-time events. While attending these services, I recognized that the sacraments that take place inside the Cathedral are far more important than the building yet having such a magnificent Cathedral makes me proud to be part of our Catholic community of this archdiocese.
