The national fundraising organization Catholic Extension has chosen the Diocese of Yakima as one of only nine dioceses to participate in its 2014 Seminarian Endowment Challenge. Through this program, Catholic Extension is offering matching dollars raised for seminarian education endowment funds, up to a maximum of $50,000 per diocese.

The specific matching ratio must be proposed individually by each participant in their application, but must be no less than $1 raised locally for every $1 matched (and may be higher, such as $2 or $3 raised locally for every $1 in matching funds). Catholic Extension will offer this opportunity to a limited number of dioceses in 2014.

Diocesan Goal                                   $75,000            From Our Generous Donors

Endowment Goal                              $50,000            Matched by Catholic Extension
