How the We Care Endowment Will Operate on an Ongoing Basis
The We Care Endowment will be carefully managed by the Catholic Foundation’s professional money managers, and distributions will be made to the applicant after completing the entire application and is approved for the grant based on need.
The Catholic Foundation works in partnership with many agencies and organizations across Southern Nebraska serving all people in need, both Catholics and non-Catholics. The We Care Endowment Board of Directors will screen candidates whose applications have been received as well as direct donations, and will make recommendations on the potential beneficiaries to be selected for gifts from the endowment. Each beneficiary will be selected based upon a significant and qualified need.

Contributions to the endowment will assist people of any faith facing the expenses of life-threatening and terminal illnesses with their out-of-pocket expenses. For your convenience, you can use PayPal to donate to the We Care Endowment. We are a 501C3 charity.
How Benefactors Benefit
Today, there are countless ways for individuals to contribute money to worthy causes and people in need, but the We Care Endowment addresses people with a unique medical assistance need. Beneficiaries of the fund will be people and families who face life-threatening and terminal illnesses.
Assistance offered to beneficiaries represents more than financial support: it represents God’s love to people who need His loving hand during a time of suffering and trial. The endowment will reach out and touch people in a personal way, offering hope, love and compassion. Fund distributions are gifts in which fund donors will participate in a meaningful way: they will be fulfilled knowing their contributions to the endowment will assist people who have a very serious and significant need.
