The Catholic Foundation of Northwest Pennsylvania is facilitating the 2021 #iGiveCatholic Giving Day to celebrate and support the charitable, educational, and spiritual ministries of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Erie. This year marks the seventh annual national #iGiveCatholic Giving Day and the third year the Catholic Foundation has facilitated this initiative for the Catholic parishes, schools, and nonprofit ministries in northwest Pennsylvania. In 2020, 1,389 donors gave $243,498 in support of 112 Catholic organizations in northwest Pennsylvania. Support for #iGive Catholic more than doubled from 2019 to 2020! With your participation, we look forward to surpassing those totals in 2021.
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, November 30, 2021.
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, November 30, 2021. You can support your local Catholic parish, school, or ministry on that day or you can make an #iGiveCatholic donation at any time during the advanced giving period from November 15 through November 29, 2021. Gifts made by check or cash can be made directly to qualifying organizations during this same time frame.
Participating organizations are eligible to win cash prizes!
To add to the excitement, your donations may help your favorite Catholic organizations win cash prizes through the generous support of our #iGiveCatholic sponsors!
