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 2018, we were able to positively impact the live of 37,551 individuals living in Southeastern Wisconsin. We couldn't do this without the help of our Works of Charity Fund donors.

Please consider the impact your donation can make for someone in need.
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 appreciation Mass and dinner. Hear from our 2019 Works of Charity Fund Chairs, on why they believe in the mission of Catholic Charities:
“We feel so strongly that never before have social services been more important. With changes on the horizon for our mental health and social service systems, community organizations will play an ever increasing role. Catholic Charities is one of the safety nets delivering, not just service, but solace and smiles on the faces of people living in poverty and isolation right here in southeast Wisconsin. The more we learn about Catholic Charities, the more impressed we are with the breadth of services, and the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of their work. As Catholics, we are called to serve the poor and the suffering; and there is no better way to live out our obligation to help our neighbors, than by supporting Catholic Charities’ mission rooted in compassion, dignity, and respect. Please take time to learn more about Catholic Charities. Now is the time to support their mission of service, and we invite you to join us as members of the Good Samaritan Society with a significant and impactful gift this year.” - Laurie and Bruce Arnold
