#iGiveCatholic 2017 was a great success. Save the date for the fourth-annual day of Catholic giving on Tuesday, November 27, 2018! See FAQs below on how your organization can become involved!
What is #iGiveCatholic?
#iGiveCatholic is an online giving event that provides our parishes, schools, ministries, and not-for-profits affiliated with the Diocese of San Diego and Imperial Counties the opportunity to connect with their current donors and establish relationships with new donors. It is also an opportunity for Catholics in arch/dioceses across the country to affirm our faith as disciples of Jesus Christ by sharing our gifts out of love for God and one another. The goal of #iGiveCatholic is to inspire the greater Catholic community to come together as faithful stewards and to “Give Catholic” on Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving back.
