Our Mission

Catholic World Mission bridges the gap between donors and  partners to uplift those in spiritual and material poverty, and we can’t do it without you. You can give online with credit card, donor advised funds, stocks, and more


We can be with one another

through the power of prayer.

You are not alone.

Every week we pray for our donors, partners,

and friends by name.

You make this Possible

Grateful from Tanzania

A kindergarten without clean drinking water and sanitization for children is a disaster. We have been living is a disastrous environment for years. We would like to thank Catholic World Mission for helping to renovate our buildings and provide us with clean water as fundamental human rights...

Our Pillars of Support

At Catholic World Mission, our main goal is to alleviate suffering, illuminate the mind, and ignite the Spirit. We categorize our projects into three pillars. Click each icon below to learn more:
Dignified Living

Each day over a million of our siblings in Christ are victims of the negative effects of severe poverty and lack of access to basic resources. For many, their lives are a constant source of worry as they deal with the consequences of food insecurity and desperate need for primary resources many of us take for granted every single day.

Our dignified living services help those in need physically by providing food-based services, building safe structures and offering medical support. With the help of our donors and laypeople, we were able to give over 140,000 of our brothers and sisters in Christ access to clean water, a reliable means of transportation and healthy meals. Some recent resources we were able to provide for those in need include:

  • Sending food supplies to a school in Tanzania.
  • Making roof repairs on a building for abandoned elderly in Haiti.
  • Providing medical supplies to communities in Guatemala.

In addition to our dignified living services, we also spread the word of God to the communities we serve to share the knowledge of God’s love and commitment to those who may be hearing his words for the first time.


At Catholic World Mission, we believe one of the best ways to empower the poor is by sharing the word of Christ. Being spiritually poor can be just as detrimental to your overall well-being as being physically poor. By partnering with communities, we help individuals recognize the love of Christ already present in their lives and help them use this love to reach their full potential.

With our evangelization programs, we help others remove their barriers of spiritual despair to help them grow and understand their God-given purposes. We will always share our faith while aiding areas in need. Donating to our evangelization programs is a great way to honor God while helping others embody the word of Christ. Some recent ways we have helped to share the good news of the Gospel include:

  • Constructing a church for worshipers in Ghana.
  • Creation of community centers for worship in India.
  • Teaching over 2 million people in the Catholic faith.

One of the best ways to combat poverty and protect human dignity is by providing educational resources to help individuals elevate their minds and communities to reach their God-given potentials. An educated mind helps open the door for individuals to empower themselves and the generations that follow. At Catholic World Mission, we help communities escape education poverty and plants seeds of hope for lasting positive change.

Our Catholic World Mission family gives the gift of education to communities around the world. In addition to helping individuals of all ages learn basic reading skills, we also provide schools with desks and chairs and repair educational buildings that experience damage from natural disasters. Our recent projects include:

  • Replacing a school roof in Nigeria.
  • Donating safe and comfortable desks and chairs for students at the Mano Amiga Colombia School.
  • Providing over $500,000 in scholarships to students and teachers in need.
