Be the Belief.

Since its formation in 1996, The Foundation of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo (FRCDB) has existed as a non-profit corporation, legally distinct from the Diocese of Buffalo.  Our mission is to acquire, administer and distribute donor funds to benefit the educational needs as well as various spiritual and social services programs provided by Catholic organizations (including Catholic Charities) and ministries throughout Western New York.    

The FRCDB is committed to protecting and enhancing our donors' contributions, ensuring that their gifts directly address the needs of various agencies and ministries which provide vital programs and services throughout the WNY community.
