#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 has partnered with The Catholic Foundation of Greater Philadelphia to participate in #iGiveCatholic for the third year in a row.
#iGiveCatholic is nationally recognized as the official Catholic Giving Day. It is celebrated annually on #GivingTuesday, which follows Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. There is an Advanced Giving Day phase that also takes place from November 14th through November 28th, culminating in the Giving Day on November 29th.
Last year, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia participated in #iGiveCatholic with 166 registered organizations raising over $1.7M for their beneficiary programs.
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.
Registration for #iGiveCatholic is now open. Any parish, school or nonprofit that is interested in registering should visit Philadelphia.igivecatholic.org. For any questions related to the #iGiveCatholic initiative in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, please contact The Catholic Foundation of Greater Philadelphia at 215-587-5650 or [email protected].
