2020 Emergency Fund Information

2020 EMERGENCY CATHOLIC COMMUNITY FUND

TOGETHER IN FAITH AND LIGHT

UPDATE:  As of the end of July we have raised a total of $142,991 for the Emergency Fund and have granted $122,442 to parishes, Schools, and community organizations throughout the Archdiocese. Your donations have enabled us to distribute $31,200 to parishes, $44,200 to schools, and $47,042 to community organizations (includes St. Vincent de Paul at several parishes).

As the applications continue to come in, we will continue to distribute grants to help offset some of the financial challenges our organizations and institutions are facing. The finish line has not been drawn in the sand when it comes to the pandemic, so your support is crucial in keeping the emergency grants flowing to our communities. With your help, we will continue to support those in need however long it might take.

“So, in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”  Romans 12:5

In solidarity with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, we established the 2020 Emergency Catholic Community Fund to support those who are facing financial distress due to the COVID-19 crisis.

If you would like to support our efforts, we invite you to contribute to one of the giving options below:

Parishes – supports the parishes ability to continue essential operations, lay ministers who continue to nourish our faith, and the use of technology to celebrate mass and communicate with their Parishioners online.

Catholic Schools – supports schools who are making the necessary changes to teach our children remotely in order to maintain the social distance. 

Community Organizations – supports food Pantries, homeless shelters, and Catholic organizations such as Catholic Charities and Good Shepherd Center.

Our role is to connect our generous donors with those in need within our Catholic community, especially now more then ever, your assistance is critical in helping those who are most vulnerable in our community during this crisis.

Thank you for answering our call to action and for your contribution to this collaborative effort.

All administrative fees will be waived on donations to this fund, allowing 100% of your contribution to support those who are most vulnerable within our Catholic community.
