#iGiveCatholic is nationally recognized by the Church as the official Catholic Giving Day, celebrating all aspects of our Catholic faith. The #iGiveCatholic Giving Day inspires faithful stewards to “Give Catholic” on #GivingTuesday, the global day of giving that follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
The mission of #iGiveCatholic is to unite Catholic communities and donors throughout the country to give back in support of the organizations that have always supported them: parishes, schools, and nonprofit ministries. #iGiveCatholic promotes a collective culture of Catholic philanthropy within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, helping to build additional annual fundraising capacity for parishes, schools, and organizations.
Reasons to participate in #iGiveCatholic include:
- It’s easy – After registering for #iGiveCatholic, you will have access to an abundant amount of resources to help prepare for this initiative. These resources include donor solicitation copy, marketing toolkits, webinars and training sessions, and more.
- There are prizes – Ministries who raise the most funds will be awarded a prize through the generous support of our #iGiveCatholic sponsors.
- It’s collaborative - #iGiveCatholic is about collaborating as a Catholic community to raise funds for the ministries that shape our faith.
Last year, in collaboration with CFGP, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia participated in #iGiveCatholic for the first time, raising a collective $1.1M for the parishes, schools and nonprofit ministries that participated. It was an incredibly successful first year, and we're looking forward to its return for 2021! We hope you will participate!
