Could contributions to, or assets of, the Catholic Foundation of Michigan be reached by creditors of the Archdiocese of Detroit to pay its attorneys’ fees or lawsuit settlements?

No, the Catholic Foundation of Michigan is a Michigan nonprofit corporation legally separate and distinct, both structurally and operationally, from the Archdiocese of Detroit. Debts of the Archdiocese of Detroit are not the obligations of the Catholic Foundation of Michigan. Contributions to the Catholic Foundation of Michigan must be used for the purposes for which they are designated.
