#weGIVECATHOLIC returns for eighth year of Northeast Ohio’s Online Day of Catholic Giving

#weGIVECATHOLIC returns for eighth year of Northeast Ohio's Online Day of Catholic Giving

Cleveland, Ohio – November 21, 2023 – On Nov. 28, the Catholic Community Foundation of the Diocese of Cleveland will ask people to come together as one community for its annual giving day, #weGIVECATHOLIC, Northeast Ohio’s Online Day of Catholic Giving.

This crowdfunding event takes place each year on Giving Tuesday. Supporters can show their support at www.weGIVECATHOLIC.org for more than 230 parishes, schools, Catholic Charities sites and programs, and other Catholic nonprofits that serve communities of all faiths, races, and backgrounds throughout Northeast Ohio.

Last year’s campaign raised $3.19 million for 230 participating organizations thanks to more than 10,800 generous donors. New this year, early gifts may be made from Nov. 19-28 to offer more convenience to donors.

“The faithful of the Diocese of Cleveland come together every year in a spirit of thankfulness and generosity,” says Patrick Grace, Executive Director of the Catholic Community Foundation. “We are so grateful for all of our donors, as well as our sponsors who provide matching gifts and prize funds that add to the enjoyment of giving day.”

On Tuesday, Nov. 28, participating #weGIVECATHOLIC organizations will engage in a friendly competition to gain support and earn prizes from a $65,000 prize pool. Some are random drawings, while others, including the grand prizes, are based on donations.

There are also opportunities for donors to have their #weGIVECATHOLIC donations matched. Nearly $200,000 has already been secured by individual participating organizations for matching funds. The Foundation will roll out a $100,000 matching gift throughout the day to support tuition assistance for students at the 84 registered Catholic high schools and elementary schools. A $15,000 matching gift sponsored by Boyd Watterson will be available to all participating organizations.

The Catholic Community Foundation hopes to build on the momentum of the past seven years of Catholic Giving. Since its inception in 2016, #weGIVECATHOLIC has seen an increase in the number of participating organizations, donors, and total amounts raised each year, for a grand total of over $13 million raised.

Bishop Edward C. Malesic invites people in Northeast Ohio to unite for this day of generosity: “I invite you to come together as one community during this season of giving to share our gifts and return them with increase them to the Lord. Together, we can make this day a testament to power of faith, love, and community in Northeast Ohio.”
