Benefits of Giving to Catholic Charities


For many of us, the greatest satisfaction in life is in helping people – making everything and everyone we touch a little bit better.

All of our donors receive the immediate gratification of knowing their gifts play a vital role in helping serve those in need right here in our own communities. In addition, Catholic Charities also offers special opportunities to join a network of supporters who share your commitment and generosity.

Circle of Hope

The Circle of Hope is a leadership network for people who, through their annual gifts to support Catholic Charities’ programs and services, strengthen the lives of those in need. The Circle of Hope recognizes individuals, couples or family foundations who contribute $5,000 or more in a calendar year.  Click here to learn more.

Good Samaritan Society

The Good Samaritan Society recognizes individuals who have provided for the future of Catholic Charities through bequests or other estate and planned gifts. Planned giving often helps friends of Catholic Charities fulfill a personal legacy while providing a lasting source of support for our mission of charity.

Lifetime Giving Societies

In October 2009, Archbishop Donald W. Wuerl and Catholic Charities unveiled the Lifetime Giving Societies, created to recognize and honor individuals and families whose extraordinary support helps advance the mission of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington.

The lifetime giving achievements of the societies’ members exemplify the spirit of love and compassion that is a blessing to the agency, and more importantly, to all those who seek help and hope from Catholic Charities.

The societies are named after Catholic Charities enduring belief in social justice for all, as well as the founder of Catholic Charities, Monsignor John O’Grady.  Click here to find out more information on how you can become a member.
