#iGiveCatholic 2021 Information Page
What is #iGiveCatholic?
#iGiveCatholic is a Giving Day that provides Catholic parishes, schools, and ministries in participating dioceses across the country the opportunity to connect with current donors and establish relationships with new supporters. The goal of #iGiveCatholic is to inspire the Catholic community to come together as faithful stewards and to “Give Catholic” on #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to generosity and kindness. In 2021, St. Joseph Church will encourage parishioners to give both to the St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Joseph as well as the St. Joseph Early Childhood Learning Center.
When is #iGiveCatholic?
#iGiveCatholic takes place on #GivingTuesday, November 30, from 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM. And, back by popular demand from donors and organizations, there is an Advanced Giving Day phase (acts like a silent phase of a capital campaign) for online and offline “pre-Giving Day” gifts running from 12:00 AM on Monday, November 15 through 11:59 PM on Monday, November 29.
Why host a day of Catholic giving on #GivingTuesday?
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for purchasing gifts for loved ones—Black Friday and Cyber Monday. And for the tenth year, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to generosity. On Tuesday, November 30, individuals and organizations around the world will come together for one common purpose: To celebrate kindness, live generously, and to give back.
How does #iGiveCatholic work?
Beginning on Monday, November 15th, anyone can donate to our St. Vincent de Paul Society and/or our Early Childhood Learning Center either online through the platform, or offline by gift of cash or check given directly to the chosen ministry(ies). Registered parishioners who have provided us with an email will receive an email with a link to the online giving platform. We’ll also post this link on our Facebook page. All monies donated will be available to the church within a week of the donation date. Anyone who does not want to give online can send a check directly to the parish office, and we will count it towards our #iGiveCatholic totals. We’ll let everyone know how much we raise for our ministries.
The Donate button below is for donations to the St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Joseph Church. Please contact the Early Childhood Learning Center to make your #iGiveCatholic donation to them.
The donate button will be live November 15 – 30, 2021.
