2022 i GC results for website

On November 29, 2022 Catholics across northwest Pennsylvania were invited to join in and give to the ministries that shape their hearts and souls, and they responded by surpassing previous giving totals. Across the 13-county Diocese of Erie, 1,947 individuals donated $400,067 in support of 95 Catholic organizations including schools, parishes and ministries.

#iGiveCatholic is an annual 24-hour online giving event uniting Catholics across the nation to raise as many charitable dollars as possible for Catholic organizations. In the Diocese of Erie, donors to the 2022 campaign hailed from British Columbia, the District of Columbia and twenty-three states outside of Pennsylvania, showing how far-reaching online giving can be.

The Catholic Foundation of Northwest Pennsylvania facilitates #iGiveCatholic for the parishes, schools and ministries in the Diocese of Erie. The graph below displays the results for the four years of participation in our diocese.
