Federation of Catholic Charities is incorporated

Letters Patent were granted to the Federation, making it an incorporated legal entity on the 23rd of May, 1932. The newly incorporated Federation quickly became the organization responsible for conducting the annual fundraising campaign and for the financial help and budgeting of its numerous constituent associations, which included the Catholic Community Council, St. Patrick’s Orphanage, Care of the Aged, the Catholic Welfare Bureau, the Catholic Social Service Guild, and the Catholic Men’s Hostel, among others.
