Be the Belief.

During this most difficult time for our Diocese of Buffalo, The Foundation of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo wants to reassure its many generous donors and supporters of the following:

  1. Incorporated separate and distinct from the Diocese since 1996, The Foundation has operated over the past 22 years as a legally distinct corporation from the Diocese and will continue to do so.
  2. Donations to The Foundation, including Upon This Rock gifts, invested in the St. Joseph Investment Fund, Inc., a professionally managed investment fund, are not discretionary Assets of the Diocese and cannot be used by the Diocese for victim abuse settlements, reconciliation fund payments, claims made by creditors of the diocese, legal fees, or anything other than its dedicated mission of philanthropy.
