Message from Archbishop Comensoli

It is my privilege to take up the appointment of Patron for the Melbourne Catholic Archbishop’s Charitable fund as it continues to deliver financial support to the valuable good works of our exceptional Catholic Charities. My sincere gratitude extends to the Melbourne Catholic community for their compassion and ongoing generosity; providing the opportunity for the Fund to achieve its mission of being instrumental in making a real difference to the disadvantaged individuals and families in the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne. I am inspired and committed to share God’s love, bring hope, and continue the legacy of making a positive difference in our community. Thank you for your prayers and support.

2020 Grant Applications

Archbishop’s Charitable Fund grant making round for 2020 is open for applications

For over 30 years, the generosity of the Catholic community has supported the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne, enabling it to provide funding for the many charitable works of the Church. In 2018, the Melbourne Catholic Archbishop’s Charitable Fund introduced a new approach to grant making, and this marked a new era of deep commitment to constant and compassionate support.

Total Grant allocations over the last three years have exceeded $500,000 and have been distributed to over 30 Catholic charitable organisations to assist in projects and programs that work towards effecting positive change and to overcome disadvantage, inequality and exclusion.

In these particularly challenging times we are all facing, perhaps your organisation might need some support so that you may continue to bring care and compassion to others.
