#iGiveCatholic is an online crowdfunding event that brings the community together to give thanks and give back to Catholic parishes, schools, and ministries. The third annual #iGiveCatholic was held on #GivingTuesday, November 28, 2017.
“This is an exciting opportunity for our family at CAPTRUST to join with #iGiveCatholic and celebrate Catholic philanthropy around the nation,” said CAPTRUST Principal and Director of Institutional Religious Retirement and Foundation Services Stephen Schott. This sponsorship directly aligns with the CAPTRUST mission, which is “to enrich the lives of our clients, colleagues, and communities through sound financial advice, integrity, and a commitment to service beyond expectation.”
The inaugural #iGiveCatholic shattered all expectations, raising $1.36 million in just 24 hours and transforming online giving for parishes, schools, and ministries. With the addition of five partner dioceses, last year’s giving day donations totaled more than $1.8 million in gifts for more than 300 ministries. This year, the overall goal is to raise $3.5 million for more than 500 participating organizations representing the 17 participating archdioceses and dioceses. “We are thrilled to have CAPTRUST as the first national sponsor of #iGiveCatholic,” remarked Josephine Everly, president of #iGiveCatholic. “With their help, we are confident we will be able to reach our goal.”
