Celebrated annually on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, #iGiveCatholic is the U.S. Catholic Church’s Giving Day that kicks off the charitable season and brings the Catholic community together to give thanks and give back. As the first-ever giving day created to celebrate our unique Catholic heritage, #iGiveCatholic inspires faithful stewards to "Give Catholic" on #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving.
Declared “the most successful Catholic crowdfunding event to date” by the National Catholic Register, the goal of the #iGiveCatholic Giving Day is to rally our Catholic community in support of the organizations that shape our souls: Our parishes, schools, and nonprofit ministries. Secure, tax-deductible donations to eligible Catholic organizations located in participating arch/dioceses can be made at iGiveCatholic.org during our Advanced Giving Day Phase beginning now, continuing right into #GivingTuesday, November 29, and ending at 11:59 PM.
In 2021, the seventh year of the campaign raised more than $16.5 million for 2,600+ participating parishes, schools, and nonprofit ministries within 40 arch/dioceses participating across the country. At the close of the 24-hour giving period, the number of contributions both online and offline totaled more than 48,000 with gifts from 50 states and 16 countries.
#iGiveCatholic is a bishop-led initiative in partnership with lay leaders in Catholic philanthropy.
