About Us

ABOUT THE CATHOLIC CARING FOUNDATION

In 1988, then Bishop, Denis Browne, set up the Catholic Caring Foundation as an independent entity for the long term, with its own volunteer Board of Directors. The Foundation helps those in need throughout Auckland, Northland and Coromandel, by providing not only financial assistance, but also, mentoring and moral support for families and communities.

We are a totally independent and transparent Foundation providing careful financial stewardship to:

  • Our Donors (people, mainly Catholics, who donate so generously to us)
  • Our Donees (entities we fund, who help disadvantaged families in communities)

We are a very small foundation making a very big impact by working closely with agencies we fund. We are ‘driven’ by a personal Catholic choice to support our “neighbour”.

As Jesus reminded us in Saint Matthew’s gospel: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

The Foundation has advanced over $12 million in grants since 1988! We have stringent accountability checks in place with the entities who receive our grants. Our Patron is Bishop Patrick Dunn.
