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:
- 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.
- 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.
