The Catholic Caring Foundation cares for local families and communities who struggle with the effects of poverty. We have granted over $12 million since we began in 1988 and demand for our grants continues to grow.
Thank you to everyone who joined Bishop Pat for the Foundation’s Caring Mass and Awards on Wednesday, July 26th, 2017 at St Patrick’s Cathedral. What a special way to honour the outstanding commitment to the care of others in our community by our young people and those who work tirelessly in our community to help the most vulnerable.
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.

Can you help provide coats for the homeless?
We are most grateful for the generous gift of 100 weatherproof, warm coats gifted to us by the Sydney members of the international Order of Malta last year. Again this year, they have sent us these coats and covered all freight and customs charges. The coats will be distributed by Catholic Social Services.
One of the oldest institutions in the Church, the Order works in 120 countries, committed to serving the poor and sick.
We would like to make a contribution to help them cover the thousands of dollars they have spent to assist the homeless people in our communities.
