Greetings to All:
I am delighted to announce that Archbishop Schnurr has approved the Archdiocese of Cincinnati’s participation in the #iGiveCatholic Giving Day. The Stewardship Department is partnering with #iGiveCatholic to offer this online fundraising initiative to our parishes, schools, and nonprofit ministries.
Now in its 4th year, the #iGiveCatholic Giving Day is celebrated annually on #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. Declared “the most successful Catholic crowdfunding event to date” by the National Catholic Register, the giving day kicks off the charitable season and brings the Catholic community together to give thanks and give back. In 2017, the campaign raised more than $3.6 million for 600+ participating parishes, schools, and nonprofits representing 17 arch/dioceses across the country.
WHAT IS #iGIVECATHOLIC?
#iGiveCatholic is a 24-hour online giving event for the faithful in arch/dioceses across the nation (and the world!) to unite and raise as many charitable dollars as possible for participating Catholic parishes, schools, and ministries. #iGiveCatholic presents an opportunity for Catholics to donate and support the organizations that shape our souls on #GivingTuesday.
WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?
#GivingTuesday is an annual day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end of year giving.
WHEN IS #iGIVECATHOLIC ON #GIVINGTUESDAY?
This year, #GivingTuesday is on November 27. Donations for the #iGiveCatholic campaign will be accepted at iGiveCatholic.org from midnight to 11:59 PM CST.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
All 501(c)3 Catholic parishes, schools, ministries, and other not-for-profit Catholic organizations affiliated with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati are invited to participate.

HOW DO I ENSURE A SUCCESSFUL GIVING DAY?
Ready-made marketing materials, how-to articles, live webinars, and a series of recorded webinars will be available on the Resources page for those participating in the giving day.
We hope that you will consider participating in the #iGiveCatholic Giving Day.
