The Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth Advancement Foundation is a separate 501(c)(3) Texas non-profit corporation, organized and operated exclusively for charitable, religious and educational purposes. The Advancement Foundation, as a separate corporation, is an integrated auxiliary supporting the Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth, charged with receiving contributions intended to benefit supported activities and managing and distributing such contributions for the benefit of those supported activities.
The Advancement Foundation recognized its Philanthropists of the Year at the Association of Fundraising Professionals’ National Philanthropy Day, November 17. Every year around the 15th of November, many cities in America and around the world, both large and small, celebrate National Philanthropy Day to honor and recognize local philanthropists and the nonprofit organizations they support.
This year, Thomas McCall and his wife, Karen, were feted at the standing-room-only luncheon at the Cendera Center in Fort Worth. The McCalls are chairing the Holy Cross Capital Campaign in The Colony known as the GIFT Campaign, Give in Faith Today. They have raised nearly $2 million and are on track to begin the facelift of the front entrance of their Church. Congratulations to Karen and Tom McCall.
