#iGiveCatholic Campaign Brings Giving Tuesday Effort to Emlenton Area

#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, November 30, 2021.

Locally, Saint Michael the Archangel Parish in Emlenton, along with East Brady’s St. Eusebius, Rimersburg’s St. Richards, New Bethlehem’s St. Charles and Clarion’s Immaculate Conception parishes 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 November 30, or anytime during the advanced giving window which runs from November 15 through November 29. Those wishing to donate by check can submit their gift to the ministry of their choice during the same time-frame.

Participating organizations are eligible to win cash prizes by attaining predetermined goals on the day of the event and during the advanced giving period. The Foundation will distribute $25,000 from a cash prize pool thanks to event sponsors and a generous anonymous donor.

In 2020 the Foundation saw participation numbers and dollars raised more than double compared to #iGiveCatholic 2019. Last year 1,389 donors gave $243,498 in support of Catholic organizations throughout northwest Pennsylvania. Questions regarding
