Catholic Charities Appeal celebrating over 60 years

ANNUAL REPORT 2020

Dear Friends,

During a year with so much uncertainty and change, your unwavering support of the Catholic Charities Appeal has been an inspiration to us and a beacon of hope for those who rely on you.

For the 8th consecutive year, and in the midst of a global pandemic no less, the 2020 Catholic Charities Appeal raised $10,479,028 to meet the needs of the most vulnerable among us.

The past year tested our strength, but your dedication to our mission never faltered. An overwhelming number of people turned to us for help and their ability to survive depended on our essential programs and services. Your kindness helped over 180 of those programs serve more than a million people seeking critical support. Your gift put food on tables, gave mothers diapers for their babies, assisted seniors with accessing medication and meals, provided students with resources for virtual learning, and so much more.

Together, we are pleased and excited to share the life changing and deeply transformative impact of your generosity. With all of its dark challenges, your support was a bright reflection of Christ’s love in action. On this page, you will learn more about what your support made possible.

At a time when many had lost hope, you selflessly Gave Hope to All.
We are deeply grateful. May God bless you.

Sincerely in Christ,

Most Reverend Nelson J. Pérez
Archbishop of Philadelphia

The Catholic Charities Appeal is committed to transparency and stewardship of your gifts. This is why we do our best to keep fundraising, administrative and investment fees low. With all expenditures included, the Appeal operates at an efficiency of $0.16 cents per dollar raised. As a recognized authority, the Better Business Bureau indicates that total fundraising expenses do not exceed $0.35 cents per dollar raised. While the Catholic Charities Appeal’s total costs are considerably below this benchmark, we continuously strive for additional fundraising efficiencies.

The Catholic Charities Appeal is recognized as a non-profit institution. As such, all gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. It has its own Employer Identification Number (EIN) and receives a separate financial audit. The Archdiocese of Philadelphia affirms that no funds donated during this Appeal will be used to support the independent reconciliation and reparations program or associated expenses.

CCA Special Initiatives

  • For over forty years, Nutritional Development Services (NDS) has been serving children and those in need with food and food-related resources. Thanks to the kindness of our donors, not only is NDS providing food, but they are providing hope. We are happy to report that $516,244 was raised from more than 6,600 gifts through the special Thanksgiving initiative between the CCA and NDS.
  • Thanks to the remarkable donors of the Catholic Charities Appeal, the Schools of Special Education within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia receive essential tuition assistance and support. This year was especially difficult for families coping with the COVID-19 pandemic. We are delighted to report that in 2020, $355,285 was raised from more than 5,300 gifts for the Schools of Special Education.
  • Seniors are an important part of our community that we greatly treasure and respect. Catholic Housing and Community Services help cherish senior citizens by providing housing options, senior centers, meals, older care management, in-home support, and more. Through the generous support of our donors, like you, $442,339 was raised from 4,770 gifts to provide for our seniors last year.

CATHOLIC CHARITIES APPEAL EVENTS

Official kick-off celebrations

The 2020 Catholic Charities Appeal officially kicked-off to our beneficiaries, donors, and supporters on March 3, 2020, at Springfield Country Club. Archbishop Pérez, along with our CCA Board President, Bill Phelan, and beneficiaries, spoke on behalf of the Appeal and introduced the 2020 initiative.


Catholic Charities night with the Sixers

Catholic Charities Night with the Sixers was held on Thursday, February 20, 2020. Thanks to the generosity of CCA donors like you, over 150 tickets were sold! A portion of all proceeds from ticket sales went directly to our amazing CCA beneficiaries.

Jim Amato, Secretary for Catholic Human Services, along with several Catholic Social Services beneficiaries, were honored on-court prior to the start of the game. Jim oversees Catholic Social Services, which is the largest beneficiary of the Catholic Charities Appeal. Thank you to everyone who supported this fun night out!

Project Magis Members

Project Magis is a networking group of legal and financial services professionals dedicated to helping others in the local community by supporting the Catholic Charities Appeal. Project Magis assists people in need by addressing issues such as hunger, homelessness, addiction, and more through fundraising events. While the 2020 Third Annual Cocktail Reception was cancelled due to COVID-19, the Project Magis committee is committed to focusing on the needs of the community as the pandemic escalates hunger and homelessness in Philadelphia.

COVID-19 IMPACT

Last year was a challenge for everyone across the globe. Here in Philadelphia, our community struggled – many were left unemployed, without food, and without hope. The Catholic Charities Appeal beneficiaries, like Catholic Social Services and Nutritional Development Services, were on the front lines of the pandemic serving the community. Through your support of the Catholic Charites Appeal, individuals and families were given hope. Below is just a glimpse of how your donation to the 2020 Catholic Charities Appeal made a difference in the lives of our brothers and sisters in need.

“Providing individuals, families, and children with food and food related resources has been at the core of Nutritional Development Service’s (NDS) mission for nearly five decades. Often, we encounter those who do not have sufficient access to nutritious sustenance. However, COVID-19 has greatly impacted those that may not typically face hunger. NDS is grateful to have the means to assist all individuals and their families who are confronted with a food emergency brought on by COVID-19.” – Lizanne F. Hagedorn, Executive Director, NDS

“I love my job; it truly gives me the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives. Last year, a family of 6 turned to Casa del Carmen for help. The mother was pregnant and due to have her baby any day. I immediately set up a Zoom meeting to see what their needs were and quickly realized they were in desperate need of resources. I was able to get them a free crib for the baby, food, diapers, and sanitizing products. I pray to God to help us receive the necessary resources so we can help people in need. I know so much of what we offer is made possible through the generosity of the Catholic Charities Appeal. Thank you for making the impossible, possible. Thank you for providing hope during this difficult time.” –Triana, Social Worker/Parent Educator, Casa del Carmen

“On any given day this past year, about fifty ill and elderly priest-residents at Villa Saint Joseph directly experienced God’s grace in the very tangible form of donors’ support through the Catholic Charities Appeal. I personally count myself so blessed and many times over, too. This past year I have enjoyed immediate daily support from a true community of highly professional staff and volunteers. The priest residents have peace of mind from 24-hour nursing supervision and support, a well-cared-for and safe, comfortable, cheerful living space. We have had an enriching community life as a “family” of brother priests. We share daily Mass, a rich prayer and devotional life, great conversations about daily events, varied and nutritious meals, and social events. With Catholic Charities support, we maintain a strong sense of “family” spirituality and security even when times get tough. Thank God for the Catholic Charities Appeal. God bless you, our donors, and caregivers at Villa Saint Joseph, our family home.” – Reverend Gerald C. Ronan, Villa St. Joseph Resident

“I received a call from a former client who was distraught after being laid off due to COVID-19. Her main concern was feeding her children. I informed her about our “grab and go” meals for children in our food pantry. She came to the pantry the very next day and continues to visit us weekly. She is so appreciative of our services, especially the food pantry. She no longer has to worry about her kids and where their next meal will come from. She knows she can rely on our Southwest Family Service Center.” – Employee, Catholic Social Services, Southwest Family Service Center

"Our Lady of Confidence welcomed six new families to our community this school year. Financial assistance from the Catholic Charities Appeal has allowed parents to send their children to an in-person Special Education School during these challenging times the pandemic has brought.” – Katie Bier, Principal, Our Lady of Confidence Day School

“Mayfair Out-of-School Time (OST) program has been such a productive part of my child’s education, both in-person and through virtual learning. During the difficult times of COVID-19, Mayfair OST exceeded my expectations by continuing to fulfill my child’s academic and social needs. They achieved this through daily Zoom meetings and a variety of activities. As a full-time teacher and parent, Mayfair OST has been a great asset to my daughter and her needs, and I am so very grateful.” – Frances, Parent, Mayfair OST

#IGIVECATHOLIC

For the first time, the Catholic Charities Appeal participated in #iGiveCatholic. This initiative was made possible through a partnership with the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and The Catholic Foundation of Greater Philadelphia. #iGiveCatholic is celebrated annually on #GivingTuesday, which follows Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. #iGiveCatholic kicks off the charitable season and brings the Catholic community together to give thanks and give back. This global Catholic initiative began in mid-November and culminated in a day of giving on December 1, 2020. This year, we raised $437,830 for Catholic Charities Appeal beneficiaries. We appreciate everyone who supported the CCA during #iGiveCatholic!

Through the generosity of many on this annual day of Catholic Giving, the CCA was able to provide the necessary support to feed families that are hungry, educate special needs children with a quality Catholic education, provide senior citizens with a safe place to call home, give the homeless access to shelter, and so much more.

On behalf of the thousands of CCA beneficiaries who were impacted by your kindness, thank you!

GIVING SOCIETIES

The Catholic Charities Appeal is the Archdiocese of Philadelphia's single most important fundraiser. Started in 1958 to help fund social service programs, the Appeal has grown to benefit over 180 organization and programs helping hundreds of thousands of people in need across the region, regardless of their faith. When you support the Catholic Charities Appeal, you are directly impacting our beneficiaries. The following Giving Societies were established to celebrate the generosity and devotion of our donors. Without you, the CCA would not have been able to raise over $10,000,000, helping hundreds of thousands in need. Thank you for your generosity and dedication to the Catholic Charities Appeal.
