Donate to Catholic Charities

From Kenya to Poland, there are people all around the world who are still in poverty, despite working hard to build better lives. They want the opportunity to change and grow spiritually and physically, but they need help to do so. As a Catholic charity for the poor, Catholic World Mission is uniquely positioned to help these individuals through material support, education and spiritual support.

 

Our mission is to alleviate material and spiritual poverty by empowering the poor and sharing the Gospel of Christ, but 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.

Who Are We?

Catholic World Mission was founded in 1998. We are an independent Catholic charity, working to support the mission of the Catholic Church to empower the poor and spread the Gospel.

 

We utilize a uniquely Trinitarian approach for every single project we support. The three groups involved in every project include a community in need, a partner who helps oversee the project and our family of supporters. We believe we are stronger together, and working directly with communities allows us to get to know the people, form relationships with local priests and connect our supporters to projects.

Our Projects

We are a worldwide Catholic church charity with multiple projects you can choose to support. You can see a full list on our site, but some examples of projects include:

  • Ghana: The dioceses in Ghana are working to meet the community’s socio-economic needs in an area where many people live on less than a dollar a day. Catholic World Mission helps strengthen the capacity of pastoral agents so they can complete their pastoral activities and address growing needs.
  • United States: Not all of our work occurs abroad. We work with Catholic Campus Ministry programs across the country to help form strong future leaders in our faith. Since many young people end up leaving the church, we want to help all students participate in faith formation opportunities to help them find their purpose and mission.
  • Mano Amiga Mexico: Mano Amiga opened in 1963 and has been offering educational programs to kids in elementary school to high school ever since. The facilities also help teachers, students and parents attend continuing education workshops and get additional training.
  • Russia: Catholic World Mission supports a pro-life program in Russia that operates on hope, help and healing. We start by educating mothers on the growth of their child, giving them hope about the life inside them. We also help moms by giving them resources they may not be able to afford.

Catholic Community Services

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 and into justice to give disadvantaged individuals a leg up instead of simply a handout.

Our services start by working 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. Then, we work to remove certain obstacles. Imagine growing up poor, constantly getting sick and never getting a proper education. It would be nearly impossible to realize your God-given potential and improve your situation without some help. Catholic World Mission helps alleviate these issues and sow seeds of hope.

How Your Donation Works

When you donate to Catholic World Mission, your donation helps our Trinitarian approach. Your money goes to the people in the community, with the guidance of a trusted partner such as a priest, bishop, religious community member or lay person. Since we believe in empowering the people we serve, the community works with us to determine what kind of use of your donated funds would help them the most.

Throughout this process, Catholic World Mission has a strict policy of accountability to receive regular updates of the progress of the project. For example, you may donate to a construction project in India. Then our trusted community partner provides additional support, financial oversight, and regular updates. Lastly, the community we are helping provides their time and labor. This empowers the people in the community since they have a hand in helping themselves. All three groups commit to the solution.

As an individual who donates to a Catholic charity for the poor, you will stay informed throughout the entire process. Within three months of receipt of funds, we require photos and videos of the project as well as documentation on the money spent. We also receive testimonials from people in the community who benefit from the project.

All of this gets shared with you so you can feel close to the people you’re financially supporting without traveling there. You get to see photos and videos of the kids and families you support, as well as updates on projects you helped. We’re also happy to answer any questions about the projects you want to support, so you can feel confident about supporting a community financially and spiritually.

Donate Today

When you’re looking for Catholic organizations that help poverty, consider donating to Catholic World Mission. We never distribute aid where we are not also able to share the love of Jesus, and we work with communities to make sure they have a hand in any project we complete.

Help us change the world by supporting our projects. Donate today or contact us for more information about Catholic World Mission’s outreach and services to communities around the globe.
