Mission & Funding Priorities

The Richard and Maude Ferry Foundation supports programs that advance the mission of the Catholic Church, protect the dignity of human life, advance innovative health care, and foster a greater quality of life within our community. The Foundation funds only programs that are financially viable and not in conflict with Catholic Church teaching.
