Statement of Independent Status
The Independent Catholic Foundation is a nonprofit corporation certified as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity for federal income tax purposes. While almost every one of our permanent endowments benefits Catholic organizations in the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown, the Foundation is not operated by the diocese – it is truly independent.
All Foundation activities, management and investment policies controlled by the Foundation’s volunteer, lay Board of Trustees.
Charitable gifts to the Independent Catholic Foundation are tax exempt to the extent the law allows. Please consult your tax advisor to determine your specific situation. To discover ways to give, please click here.
