SEMINARIAN FUNDS – The Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Saint Cloud houses fourteen funds, the earnings of which support seminarians, vocations, and religious. Most of these funds are named for their original donor. These funds provide a wide array of assistance: scholarships, grants to offset marketing costs, grants to help women discern a religious vocation, assistance for fourth-year seminarian funds, etc.
CATHOLIC SCHOOLS STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP FUND – The Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Saint Cloud created an endowed fund to assist families of the Diocese with tuition costs for Catholic grade and middle schools. This came about in the wake of listening sessions with numerous groups of Catholic women and men who were asked, “What are the greatest needs in our Diocese, and what could the Catholic Foundation do to mitigate those needs?” At this time, the fund is nearly halfway to its $1 million goal.
