The Catholic Foundation of Northwest Pennsylvania is facilitating the 2020 #iGiveCatholic Giving Day to celebrate and support the charitable, educational, and spiritual ministries of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Erie. This year, 2020, marks the sixth annual national #iGiveCatholic Giving Day and the second year the Catholic Foundation has facilitated this initiative for the Catholic parishes, schools, and nonprofit ministries in northwest Pennsylvania. In 2019, 561 donors gave $92,843 in support of 67 Catholic organizations in northwest Pennsylvania. With your participation, we look forward to surpassing those totals in 2020. Especially during this year of pandemic, your support of local Catholic organizations is critical.
What is #iGiveCatholic?
#iGiveCatholic is a powerful, 24-hour online giving event to unite the faithful in dioceses across the nation (and the world!) to come together and raise as many charitable dollars as possible for Catholic parishes, schools, and nonprofit ministries on #GivingTuesday, December 1, 2020.
What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season when many people focus on holiday and end-of-year giving.
When is #iGiveCatholic?
#iGiveCatholic is on #GivingTuesday, December 1, 2020. You can support your local Catholic parish, school, or ministry on December 1 at erie.igivecatholic.org. You may also make an #iGiveCatholic donation at any time during the advanced giving period from November 16 through November 30, 2020.
