Become a Bearer of Hope

Thank you for your interest in becoming an Bearer of Hope.

Catholic Charities depends on the generosity of people like yourself who want to make a difference through their giving. Bearer of Hope gifts typically start at $1,000 or more.

Bearers of Hope receive invitations to special Catholic Charities events as well as recognition in our annual report and on our website.
