The Catholic Caring Foundation cares for local families and communities who struggle with the effects of poverty. We have granted over $14 million since we began in 1988 and demand for our grants continues to grow.
The closing date for applications for grants from the Catholic Caring Foundation has now closed for 2018. All grant applicants will be notified of the outcome of their grant application by mid-late July, 2018. Grant applications for 2018 are no longer being accepted.
The Foundation provides grants to organisations that strengthen or support families, individuals and communities in need, or suffering from the effects of poverty within the Auckland Diocese (Far-North to Thames/Whitianga), irrespective of religious beliefs, gender or ethnicity.

The New Zealand Bishops Conference is The Tindall Foundation Faith Funding Manager for the Catholic Church. The Tindall Foundation bulk funds the Bishops Conference to distribute money nationally on their behalf to six diocese across the country.
The Catholic Caring Foundation is one of the six and distributes funds throughout the Auckland Dioceses to those who need it the most.
