What We Do
The Catholic Children’s Learning Corporation is a newly founded (2019) 501C charity formed to provide financial assistance to the Catholic elementary schools located in the eight counties of Western New York. These counties where Catholic youth reside are in Erie, Niagara, Genesee, Alleghany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Wyoming, and Orleans. The CCLC is an independent charity and is not associated with the Diocese of Buffalo
Following the historical model of many Catholic religious orders who built elementary and high schools, colleges, universities, and hospitals over the generations, the CCLC seeks to replicate this practice by investing in and creating businesses that will contribute to the community and generate an income that is given to the Catholic elementary schools of Western New York annually. Expanding these efforts to include needy Catholic high schools is planned for the future.
CCLC initiatives include ownership and operation of a variety of businesses, real estate development, educational product development, and financial investment.
A major goal of the CCLC is to use its businesses not only to generate income for Catholic elementary schools but to offer employment and career training to our community youth and underemployed adults.
The CCLC welcomes business partners in all types of initiatives that can serve the community.
