Support our cause through the Works of Charity Fund!
The Works of Charity Fund is our annual giving campaign to support the mission of Catholic Charities. Inspired by Christ's call to serve, our mission is to provide service to those in need, to advocate for justice, and to call upon others to do the same.
Donors to our fund help to improve the lives of those we serve, empower the most vulnerable, and help to reduce the impact of poverty by supporting quality, compassionate, and effective human services provided by the dedicated, professional staff of Catholic Charities.
In 2022, we were able to positively impact the lives of 46,719 individuals living in southeastern Wisconsin. We couldn't do this without the help of our Works of Charity Fund donors.

Is a gift of $1,000 - $2,500 - $5,000 - $10,000, or more, within your heart and ability to contribute?
For our loyal, annual donors who give at this highly impactful level, we recognize you as members of Catholic Charities' Good Samaritan Society. Our Good Samaritan donors share a special connection to our mission and are recognized at our annual celebration. Hear from our 2023 Works of Charity Fund Chairs, on why they believe in the mission of Catholic Charities:
"The Good Samaritan showed compassion for his neighbor by caring for him and offering two silver coins to an innkeeeper to continue his care. We invite you to be a Good Samaritan Society member by generously supporting the mission of Catholic Charities to care for our neighbors in need."
-Jay, Kiara, and Liz Mack
