The Role of the Foundation

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Gallup is the poorest diocese in the United States, serving the largest population of Native Americans and Hispanics. Catholic Peoples Foundation has the mission to raise and administer resources to assist the good works within the Diocese. We fund Catholic schools, agencies supporting the poor, scholarships to low-income students, and also the ministries and operating costs of the Diocese itself.
