2023 Annual Grant Awards Luncheon


The 2023 Annual Grant Awards Luncheon was held on  Friday, September 29.


Annual Grant Awards Luncheon

Each year, The Catholic Foundation brings together community leaders from across New Mexico to award grants for charitable programs that are helping improve the health and well-being of our children and families. The Catholic Foundation’s Grant Awards Luncheon is a celebration of all of the people involved in creating and supporting these charitable programs throughout the Archdiocese of Santa Fe.

We would like to say thank you to our sponsors for making the Grant Awards Luncheon possible. Your support and the support of the community are essential to the success of the Foundation in continuing its mission to Gather, Grow, & Give.

Last year, over $500,000 was awarded in grants in five categories: faith formation, Catholic education, capital improvements, historic preservation and human services.

In appreciation for their commitment to Catholic education, nine teachers also received awards and endowments were set up at their schools.
