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 2021, we were able to positively impact the live of 52,652 individuals living in Southeastern Wisconsin. We couldn't do this without the help of our Works of Charity Fund donors.

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 2021-2022 Works of Charity Fund Chairs, on why they believe in the mission of Catholic Charities:
“Dave and I, as the Chairs of the Good Samaritan Society, would like to invite you to join our mission to 'go and do likewise' in serving those affected by poverty and hardship in southeastern Wisconsin. When you partner with Catholic Charities, you become the helping hand, the shoulder to lean on, the guiding voice, and the comforting embrace through funding of programs that inspire hope through caring, compassionate, and unwavering human services. Together, we can make a difference. Help us to inspire hope; join our mission."
-Dave and Patti Young
