The Cappella Oratoriana Fund solely supports the Cappella Oratoriana, which is based at the Brooklyn Oratory of St. Philip Neri. The Cappella Oratoriana is an ensemble of singers specializing in the performance of the important but neglected body of music associated with the Oratories in the 16th and 17th centuries. Its repertoire includes sacred music that led to the development of the early oratorio.

The Fund aims to support all activities directed to spread the knowledge of the extraordinary lifelong music production of Maestro Cardinal Domenico Bartolucci (1917-2013), great conductor of the Sistine Chapel Choir and a paramount composer of sacred music and operas of top tier artistic quality, by which he maintained and renewed the priceless music tradition of the Catholic Church as a means of expression and diffusion of the Faith and of the creativity of the human spirit. The Fund supports charitable entities and institutions with this purpose. Additionally, the Fund supports parish churches and religious and lay institutions and charitable entities dedicated to the teaching, awareness, and knowledge of sacred music through programs, activities, and initiatives of any kind.

This Fund was established by individuals who have great passion for addressing the root causes of poverty in the United States. These individuals have created this Fund also to strengthen the families by job creation, affordable housing, improved living conditions, etc. They hope you, too would join the team.

The Congregation of St. Joseph is a community of more than 700 vowed women religious dedicated to the love of God and neighbor, committed to sharing life together in community, and missioned to be a unifying, reconciling presence wherever we live and minister.  Our mission flows from the purpose for which the congregation exists: We live and work that all people may be united with God and with one another. It is rooted in the mission of Christ, the same mission which continually unfolds in His church, “That all may be one as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; I pray that they may be one in Us.” (John 17:21)  Responding to the unmet needs in our church and world, we serve in education, healthcare, pastoral and parish ministry, social work, spiritual care and faith development, and in other ministries that respond to spiritual, social and physical needs.

Cross Catholic Outreach was founded in 2001 and is located in Boca Raton, Florida. Our mission is to serve the poorest of the poor worldwide. We are the first Catholic international ministry to receive canonical status and official approval by the Pontifical Council Cor Unum.

Last year, we provided nearly $230 million in grants-in-aid and goods distributed to the poor in about 40 countries – for food, water, orphans, housing, education, medical, self-help, shipping and disaster relief. We deliver aid through dioceses, parishes and Catholic missionaries, cost-effectively helping the poor break the cycle of poverty, while advancing Catholic evangelization.

Rather than create new institutions to distribute aid, we support existing ministries and churches already serving the poor. In addition to being the most cost-effective way of helping the poor, empowering these ministries allows us to support the Church’s spiritual mission and its important position of leadership in poor communities.

We consider every gift we receive as a precious resource from God. We direct every donation to its intended project, provide honest and accurate reports to our donors, and keep overhead cost to an industry low of about five percent. We handle funds with utmost integrity, and hold our mission partners in the field to the same high standards, by requiring them to document their costs and the impact of their outreach.

While the goal of every true evangelizer is not to raise funds but rather to win hearts, friends of the Church’s initiatives that support life, marriage and family have worked with the National Catholic Community Foundation to establish an effective support vehicle for this work, the Nazareth Initiatives Fund.

Why that name?

Throughout history, we see that the family is where life is most sacred, and that every family is influenced by its environment, where it lives, who its friends and neighbors are, what are the surroundings that create its memories. For the Holy Family, Jesus, Mary and Joseph, that history and that place was Nazareth. It is where Mary and Joseph watched over Jesus and where He grew in wisdom, age and grace before God and man. For 30 years, Nazareth was everything for Jesus, it was His home, it took care of Him.

One etymology of the word Nazareth is that it is a place that “watches over” life, takes care of it. Likewise, every disciple of Jesus must “watch over” Him, grow closer to Him and bring others to Him as well. As disciples, we must be like Nazareth, the place where Jesus becomes visible to the world, and the structure that allows Him to bring salvation to the world. “Nazareth” is every disciple’s home town and every disciple’s vocation as well. That is why the Nazareth Initiatives Fund helps make discipleship possible, particularly as regards life and families, and has Jesus’ home town as the model for its initiatives.

To provide hospitality, hope, and healing to those impacted by violence and incarceration.  Through a restorative justice philosophy, we work toward reconciliation.

This fund has been established in the name of Frank and Alberta Radencic and is known as the Radencic Family Fund. It is through the hard work and generosity of my parents that this fund has been made possible. My parents left a legacy and example of giving to support others. They did it with their time, their talent and their treasure. Their support came in monetary form and in the time and assistance they gave to their church, their family and friends, to Catholic educational institutions, and Catholic Charities. In like manner, this Fund is designated to help efforts to improve and sustain Catholic Education, to support efforts to assist working poor women seeking to raise themselves out of poverty and into self-sufficiency and self-esteem, and efforts to care for poor children through orphanages, foster care, adoption, education and health care.

Our congregation was founded in 1975, as a diocesan congregation in the Archdiocese of Chicago, with Sister Annamarie Cook named as Foundress. We currently live and minister in the Midwest and South (Illinois, Louisiana, Minnesota, Florida, and Missouri). Your investment in the Sisters of the Living Word sustain our ministries, care for our elderly sisters, and continue our mission in works of justice and peace.

“God blessed our family with our daughter Mary Coppa Coffey for just over two years. What an incredible blessing she was and continues to be for us. Many have told us that in her short life, Mary helped bring them back to greater prayer and closeness to God than some do in a lifetime. With our Fund in her memory at NCCF, we hope to help families attend the Regina Academies which are committed to renewing Catholic classical education, and provide assistance to the Cardiac Care floor (2B and CICU) at AI DuPont Hospital in Wilmington, DE. At DuPont, our 2B and CICU nurses and doctors who cared for Mary as if she were their own daughter, became part of our family. We will forever be grateful.”
