#iGiveCatholic is a powerful, 24-hour online giving event to unite Catholics across the nation (and the world!) to come together and raise as many charitable dollars as possible for Catholic parishes, schools, and nonprofit ministries on #GivingTuesday, December 1, 2020.
Locally, Saint Michael the Archangel Parish will participate in this day of Catholic giving which is facilitated by the Catholic Foundation of Northwest Pennsylvania for Catholic organizations in the Diocese of Erie.
Donors can visit erie.igivecatholic.org on December 1, or anytime during the advanced giving window which runs from November 16 through November 30. Those wishing to donate by check can submit their gift to the ministry of their choice during the same timeframe.
Participating ministries are eligible to win cash prizes by attaining predetermined goals on the day of the event and during the advanced giving period. Over $20,000 will be awarded from a cash prize pool thanks to event sponsors and a generous anonymous donor dedicated to supporting the Catholic community.
In 2019 the Foundation hosted #iGiveCatholic for the first time, when 561 donors gave $92,842 in support of Catholic organizations throughout northwest Pennsylvania. Questions regarding
