We wouldn’t be where we are without our board members

By Sue Nunn, Interim Executive Director, Orange Catholic Foundation     10/2/2019

The Orange Catholic Foundation Board of Directors are individuals who support us in carrying out our mission, which is to raise, manage, grant and grow funds supporting all aspects of the Catholic faith, following each donor’s intent. Our directors are vital to our Catholic community and continue to show great leadership within our foundation. Now is a better time than ever to express our appreciation to these dedicated individuals for all the time and effort they devote in support of our Catholic Church and community. 

We all recognize the unique roles boards play in promoting, advocating for and financially supporting charitable organizations. Our board members serve as advisers, decision makers, problem solvers, and joyful advocates of our Orange Catholic Foundation, Church and community. They are invited to serve and share their knowledge and experience in shaping the vision for the foundation. 

Our board members are volunteers who put in countless hours at not only our meetings, but at their parishes and the various ministries and other boards they are involved in, advocating for causes they care most about. A part of their role is to fund the needs of our community by facilitating charitable gifts through the foundation in support of our parishes, schools and ministries throughout the Diocese of Orange. As you can see, being a board member is a challenging role, but also an important and rewarding role. 

Our foundation’s board members all worked closely with diocesan leadership to make the vision of our recently dedicated Christ Cathedral a reality.  Our foundation benefits every day from the dedicated energy and time devoted by all former and current board members. We are very fortunate to have such passionate, faith-filled, thoughtful and dedicated leaders guiding and supporting our foundation.  

To our board members, past and present, thank you for your joyful advocacy and all that you do to help meet the needs and sustain our Church in the Diocese of Orange. You continue to impact lives every day and we look forward to serving our Catholic community with you.
