L. Edward Deimeke

The work of Catholic Charities goes to the heart of the gospels by carrying out Christ’s mission of helping the neediest. Catholic Charities translates the gospels from words into actions.




 The Hayes Family

We are so impressed by the positive impact Catholic Charities has across a broad spectrum of communities. Catholic Charities provides services for people from all backgrounds, all religions, all ethnicities, and all walks of life, but especially the most vulnerable among us and that is why we happily support this great organization.




Betsi and Bill McGoldrick

Catholic Charities supports the most vulnerable of our neighbors in their time of crisis. We are blessed to be able to support its service to others.




John and Kelly Murray

Kelly and I are blessed by the opportunity to support Catholic Charities and the outstanding work they do in the communities where we live, work and raise our families. We are inspired by the tireless efforts of the staff of Catholic Charities to make a positive difference in the lives of our neighbors regardless of their religion, gender, ethnicity, race or citizenship.




 Mary Beth O'Brien

Each day I look to see goodness everywhere - in a small hungry child, a wise suffering elder, in crowded venues, long food lines and dismal broadcasts. "The future of humanity lies in the hands of those who are strong enough to provide generations with reasons for living and hoping." (Gaudium et Spes, 31)




Ken and Pat Raymond

We have been very fortunate throughout our lives and want to make a difference in the lives of others.




Carl E. Touhey Foundation

All human beings are deserving of a safe place to call "home" and Catholic Charities provides that security and hope to our homeless neighbors every day.




Troy Savings Bank Charitable Foundation, Inc.

The Troy Savings Bank Charitable Foundation philanthropically invests in organizations that make our communities a better place for all of us to live. Catholic Charities serves those who are the most vulnerable, and they offer those services with respect for the dignity of each individual. Their commitment to helping people who are living in poverty or crisis is vitally important, and our foundation is a proud supporter of the Campaign for Catholic Charities. We hope that our gift to the campaign helps lay the foundation for another hundred years of Caring Beyond Belief.
