Archdiocese of Philadelphia Kicks Off The 2021 #iGiveCatholic Advanced Giving Phase
#iGiveCatholic is nationally recognized as the official Catholic Giving Day, hosted on #GivingTuesday that celebrates and supports parishes, schools, and nonprofit ministries.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia partnered with The Catholic Foundation of Greater Philadelphia to participate in #iGiveCatholic for the second year in a row.
#iGiveCatholic is nationally recognized as the official Catholic Giving Day. It is celebrated annually on #GivingTuesday (November 30th), which follows Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. The Advance Giving Phase is taking place now through November 29th.
Last year, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia participated in #iGiveCatholic for the first time. 101 organizations registered to participate in the initiative and over $1.1M was raised for the participants.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s participation in #iGiveCatholic presents an opportunity for Catholics to affirm their faith as disciples of Jesus Christ by sharing their gifts out of love for God and one another. It also gives parishes, schools, and nonprofit ministries the chance to rally support for their individual organizations and make a difference in their community, with the goal of raising as many funds as possible.
Those wishing to make a gift to a participating Archdiocesan organization may visit Philadelphia.igivecatholic.org and select the organization they wish to support. For more information on #iGiveCatholic, visit www.iGiveCatholic.org
