The Matthew 25 Fund is being established to provide long-term financial support for Catholic Charities’ mission to embrace those in need with hope, transforming their lives through faith, compassion, and service. Donations to the Matthew 25 Fund will benefit the ministries of Catholic Charities of Central Florida. Distributions from this fund will be used to support the ministries which provide aid to the indigent, homeless, hungry, jobless, sick, and dying in our community. This purpose fits beautifully with the scriptural passage of Matthew 25: “Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.”

In celebration of Catholic Charities 60th Anniversary Year and through generous gifts from the Clarence P. Geis Trust and the Gardner Family, all donations to the Matthew25 Fund made through March 31st, 2023  – will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $600,000!
