About The Foundation
The Foundation of
the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany, New York,
Inc. was established in February, 1995 as a
not-for-profit charitable organization. Its
purpose is to preserve and enhance the mission
of the diocese, its parishes, Catholic Charities
programs and agencies, Catholic schools and
other “formation” programs through the building
of long-term endowment funds through the
generous ongoing support of the Catholic
faithful and other friends of the Church.
The programs of
Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany depend upon
your goodwill. To that end, there are a myriad
of easy giving options from which you can choose
– from naming us as a beneficiary in your will
to a more complex trust arrangement.
We’ve created this
easy-to-understand website to help you find the

strategies that enhance your, and your family's,
