A memorial gift to Catholic Charities allows you to thoughtfully remember family and friends in a meaningful way to assist those in critical need of service and support.
Gifts to Catholic Charities made in honor of family and friends at times such as at the birth of a child or grandchild; or on a birthday, wedding, anniversary, or other notable occasions can be gifts of love that show how much you care.
An easy way to double or triple your gift to Catholic Charities is to ask your employer if they have an established matching gift program in place and whether or not social service agencies are eligible.
Consider one of the simplest and most rewarding gifts you can make to Catholic Charities: a bequest in your will or other estate plans.
A gift of marketable securities, which are otherwise subject to long-term capital gains is often advantageous.
