We’re excited to share that on December 30, 2017, we surpassed our annual Archbishop Hannan Community Appeal campaign goal of $1.82 million! This is the first time in recent history that we’ve reached the campaign’s goal by year’s end. This wouldn’t be possible without the dedicated support and generosity of donors and volunteers like you!
Gifts to the campaign raise crucial undesignated funds that allow Catholic Charities to respond swiftly, effectively and compassionately in times of crisis, disaster and great need. In 1965, the campaign was founded by Archbishop Philip M. Hannan in response to Hurricane Betsy and the overwhelming needs of our city’s poor.
Today, the campaign raises funds for many of the same needs still facing our community: housing, healthcare, education, emergency response and more. Thanks to your generosity, we’re able to serve more than 75,000 men, women and children annually including the homeless, hungry, elderly, at-risk youth, pregnant women, formerly incarcerated individuals and so many more in need.
