The Catholic Community Foundation of Santa Clara County

Society of Saint Joseph


"This Society is managed by the Catholic Community Foundation in partnership with the Office of Stewardship and Development at the Diocese of San Jose. The Catholic Community Foundation and The Roman Catholic Diocese of San Jose are independent Catholic organizations. We are pleased to partner together to fulfill our common vision for our local Church." 

DEFINITION:  "Bishop Patrick J. McGrath instituted the first-ever legacy society for the Diocese of San Jose in 2018. The Society of Saint Joseph is comprised of Catholic men and women who, understanding the call to protect and preserve our faith for future generations, have made a commitment to name their local parish, a Catholic elementary school, the Diocese of San Jose, or any ministry of the Diocese as beneficiaries of a gift (of any size) in their wills or trusts, retirement accounts or life insurance policies.

We are grateful for these extraordinary gifts that come to the Church after the donors’ lifetime, bearing witness to the faith and ministries they supported and cherished during their life. Their legacy of support makes our Catholic institutions stronger, sustainable and better equipped to reach future generations with our message of faith, hope and love."
