The Catholic Foundation for Brooklyn and Queens, the non profit that supports several diocese initiatives, is celebrating a milestone anniversary.

It’s been 25 years since the foundation was started.

Since then an endowment of nearly $90 million has grown to back education, evangelization efforts, youth ministry, and the social needs of the Diocese of Brooklyn.

At a lunch on Tuesday Oct. 24, the foundation honored those who have been a driving force since the beginning, among them, Monsignor John Bracken, the Diocese of Brooklyn’s Vicar for Patrimony.

The foundation has given out $100 million in grants to date.
