Share the Faith. Secure the Future.

On behalf of our Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce the newly established Mitchell Catholic Foundation! After months of discernment, our Board of Directors took a leap of faith to trust the direction of the Holy Spirit by expanding our mission and vision.

In addition to helping our donors support Catholic Education in Mitchell, we are now able to assist our donors in sharing their faith to secure the future for our entire Catholic Community and beyond!

We have expanded our relationship with the Catholic Community Foundation for Eastern South Dakota, and can now offer estate and gift planning services that support all of the ministries that are important to you.

Our focus remains to be donor directed giving. Gifts may now be made through our Foundation that support the school, faith formation programs, parishes and all ministries within the parishes. During your estate or gift planning process, we can also assist you in supporting other areas of interest such as the Food Pantry, Weekend Snack Pack, and Universities to name a few; so long as they do not violate the moral teachings of the Catholic Church.

This is an exciting time and I encourage you to call and visit with me about any questions or concerns you may have.

Thank you for your continued trust in us, and commitment to supporting your Catholic values!
