Our mission is to alleviate material and spiritual poverty by empowering the poor and sharing the Gospel of Christ, and we can’t do it without you. Giving to Catholic charities for the poor such as Catholic World Mission can help you share your own love of God and ensure your donation makes the most significant impact around the world.
Catholic World Mission was founded in 1998. We are the hands, feet, and eyes of Christ to impoverished children and families. We work to support the mission of the Catholic Church to empower the poor and spread the Gospel.
Many Catholic organizations help the poor, but we take a long-term view of projects to form relationships with the communities we help. Our goal is to go beyond charity to give disadvantaged individuals a leg up instead of simply a handout.
We are a worldwide Catholic church charity with multiple projects you can choose to support. Help us change the world by supporting our projects. Scroll through some examples below:
In Oyede, Nigeria there are over 250 students that are paving the way to a brighter future. You can support these students by renovating the worn-down church they learn at into a fully functional school. Help these children who face harsh realities be able to have the chance to be nurtured and encouraged to follow their dreams.
Together we have the opportunity to assist 50 seminarians this year as they train to fulfill the divine calling of Holy Orders. By helping them achieve their callings we are strengthening churches and communities around the world.

Travel and explore the many projects we support throughout the following continents:
We use our Trinitarian approach in every project we support. There are at least three major groups involved: the community in need; a dedicated partner helping oversee the project (which can include priests, religious, bishops, and lay people); and the generous Catholic World Mission family of supporters.
Your money goes to the people in the community. We work with the community to figure out what we can provide that would help them the most instead of simply giving them what we think is best.
Each project is completed with the guidance of a trusted partner such as a priest, bishop, religious community member or lay person.
