Catholic Charities 2018 Annual Appeal Exceeds $12.5 Million Goal

Posted October 24, 2018

In what appears to be headed toward another record-setting year, the 2018 Catholic Charities Annual Appeal has already exceeded its goal of $12.5 million. The theme, Your Mercy: Transforming Lives and Communities, resonated with parishioners from 185 parishes throughout the eight-county Diocese of Cleveland, who gave to the annual campaign. This follows a record-setting year in 2017, in which $14.1 million was raised, marking the most in recent history.

The Catholic Charities Annual Appeal, which is managed by the Catholic Community Foundation, kicked off in February 2018 to support Catholic Charities, Diocese of Cleveland, one of the largest health and human service providers in Northeast Ohio. Catholic Charities delivers programs and services to people who are elderly and infirmed, individuals who are hungry and homeless, children and families at risk, and children and adults with disabilities –regardless of their faith, race or background. A follow-up Appeal conducted in May raised funds earmarked to battle the opioid crisis by expanding Catholic Charities’ addiction treatment services throughout all eight counties of the Diocese of Cleveland.

“Thanks to the mercy and generosity of the faithful, pastors, and parish volunteers, we have had a wonderful response to this year’s Annual Appeal,” says Bishop Nelson Perez. “People know that their gifts change lives and that the work of Catholic Charities is bringing the healing love of Christ to people who suffer from poverty and other hardships in life.”

Catholic Charities assists over 400,000 people in need annually throughout the eight-county Catholic Diocese of Cleveland with more than 150 programs and services available at 60 sites. The need continues to grow, and there is still time to have an impact this year as the Catholic Charities 2018 Annual Appeal runs through December 31, 2018. Donations can be made securely online at or by calling 216-696-6525 ext. 1910.
