Why Give?

CWCF has given away over $2 million, primarily to support Catholic schools and parishes through over 30 endowment funds.


Bishop Joseph Tyson

Every child who wants a Catholic school education should be able to get one and every child should be able to learn about Jesus regardless of their parish’s financial resources.


Ignacio Navarette Jr.

Graduate at Tri Cities Prep

When I wanted to apply to Tri-Cities Prep, my parents couldn’t support me financially. Of course, thanks to the Central Washington Catholic Foundation, I was able to receive that financial support. I have a new found faith in God.


Terry Sliger

Board Member

A Catholic education is instrumental in teaching much needed social principals, a character building process and development of thought.  I am proud to support the Central Washington Catholic Foundation, doing so much for so many!


Kelly Sauer

Religious Director at St. Mary's Parish

The Catholic Foundation grant has been such a blessing to our parish. We are a very small parish and a very poor parish. So through the grant, the first thing we needed to do was get bilingual books!


Most Reverend Carlos A. Sevilla, SJ

Bishop Emeritus of Yakima

I know that there are kids who also want a Catholic education, whose families don’t have the means to provide what's needed for them to attend a Catholic school. So it’s wonderful that the foundation is available to help kids that really want to deepen their Catholic faith understanding, and their love of Jesus, and their love of the Church.


Ann Sonn

St. Joseph Wenatchee Parish - President

I support the Central Washington Catholic Foundation because of my strong belief in its mission to provide and uphold Catholic education throughout the Diocese of Yakima. All who seek to learn about our Catholic faith in our schools and in our parishes must be served. The Foundation proves instrumental in achieving that goal.


Ignacio Navarette Sr.

Father of Ignacio

Finally our dream came true. We are very thankful to Central Washington Catholic Foundation for all their support. It really makes a difference in our life. Now it’s a whole new world for all of us, and our son. Thank you very much.
