Fundraising and Administrative expense is consistently well below the Charities Review Council standard of 30% (2017 is 10.6%); every dollar of Catholic Charities’ budget is used to advance our mission.
In 2017, more than 17,000 individual donors and hundreds of organizations and churches funded 34% of our work in the community. This includes grants from the United Way and a gift from the annual Catholic Services Appeal. Public contracts, fees for services and investment revenue fund the remainder of our operations.
Your employer may be able to match your donation. Contact your human resources department to see if your employer has a matching gift program.
