Giving Societies

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.

Catholic Charities Giving Societies honor the commitment and cumulative giving of our most generous supporters who make possible the programs and services that distinguish this great organization. Membership is determined by gifts in a fiscal year, which is from July 1 to June 30.

Good Samaritan Society

The Good Samaritan Society recognizes individuals who have included a gift for Catholic Charities in their estate plans. These gifts take many forms, including simple bequests by will, designations of retirement plan assets, life income gifts and more. Planned giving often helps friends of Catholic Charities fulfill a personal legacy while providing a lasting source of support for our mission of charity.
