#iGive Catholic – Message from Ken Gavin
In May, I wrote to share that the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will partner with the Catholic Foundation of Greater Philadelphia to participate in #iGiveCatholic for the third year in the row.
#iGiveCatholic is nationally recognized as the official Catholic Giving Day. It is celebrated annually on #GivingTuesday, which follows Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. This year, #iGiveCatholic will take place on Tuesday, November 29th.
Archbishop Pérez recently released a special video message via the CFGP YouTube Channel. In the video, Archbishop Pérez encouraged all parishes, schools, and non-profit ministries of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to register for participation in #iGiveCatholic.
Please note that this video is for internal use only and may not be shared broadly with others. As it is relevant only to the process of registration for beneficiary entities.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s participation in #iGiveCatholic presents an opportunity for Catholics to affirm their faith as disciples of Jesus Christ by sharing their gifts out of love for God and one another. It also gives parishes, schools, and nonprofit ministries the chance to rally support for their individual organizations and make a difference in their community, with the goal of raising as many funds as possible.
Last year, 124 Catholic organizations across the Archdiocese of Philadelphia participated in #iGiveCatholic and raised more than $1.7 million.
Please visit philadelphia.igivecatholic.org to register. If your ministry is a returning participant, simply search for your organization’s name, and click on it. You can copy over your profile from last year and make any needed edits. If you have questions or are a new participant, please click here for instructions.
N.B. Registration should be completed only by departmental supervisors or administrators or their designees.

Chief Communications Officer
