The Catholic Charities Appeal of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia was established in 1958 to help fund social services.

“As I reflect on my first year as Archbishop of Philadelphia, my heart is filled with gratitude for the warm welcome home. Although we continue to face unexpected challenges, I am confident in our dedication and commitment to Give Hope to All through the Catholic Charities Appeal. The Catholic Charities Appeal of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia is our single largest fundraising initiative each year. Through this Appeal, we support over 180 separate charities that bring hope to every community in our diocese. Each neighborhood and street in our region is impacted positively by it and the Appeal needs you now more than ever before.

In the face of ongoing uncertainty, CCA gives hope and provides essential social services like meals for families, diapers for mothers, emergency rent assistance, and countless other modes of assistance. The work supported by the appeal is vital. It changes and saves lives each day. However, we can’t continue doing it without your generosity.

Please help in any way you can. Every gift makes a difference no matter the amount. The following pages offer a glimpse into the impact your gift will have on our amazing beneficiaries during a time when they need you most. Please join me in our faithful mission to Give Hope to All in 2021.”
