WHAT IS #IGIVECATHOLIC?
#iGiveCatholic is the first-ever online giving day for the Catholic community. It is a call to share of our blessings with the Church and those the Church helps and supports in our communities.
This year, #iGiveCatholic is being celebrated by 6 Catholic parishes in the southeast region: The Archdiocese of New Orleans, Diocese of Austin, Diocese of Baton Rouge, Diocese of Biloxi, Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, and Diocese of Jackson.
To celebrate our unique Catholic heritage #iGiveCatholic is a giving day created to rally the Catholic community on #GivingTuesday, November 29th – a global day of giving. Secure, tax-deductible donations will be accepted on iGiveCatholic.org during a 24-hour period, and eligible Catholic parishes, schools, ministries, and not-for-profit organizations located in the Archdiocese of New Orleans, Diocese of Austin, Diocese of Baton Rouge, Diocese of Biloxi, Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, and Diocese of Jackson will have the chance to receive prizes offered by our generous and giving #iGiveCatholic sponsors.
THE GOAL: $1,500,000 FOR PARISHES, SCHOOLS, MINISTRIES, AND NOT-FOR-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS!
The goal of the #iGiveCatholic Giving Day is to inspire our Catholic community to come together with giving in support of organizations that shape our souls: our parishes, schools, ministries and not-for-profit organizations. #iGiveCatholic’s goal is to deliver $1,500,000 to our Catholic organizations in a 24-hour period.
Let's come together to share our gifts lovingly in justice with others, and return them with increase to the Lord.
