Your Gift Brings Hope to Our Neighbors in Need
Thank you for your interest in supporting Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany. We rely on the contributions of thousands of people like you to help make our work possible. Donations can be made to Catholic Charities for use where the need is greatest or designated to a specific program or county. If you wish to designate your gift to a specific program or county, please make a note of that either by enclosing a letter with your donation, in the comments field if you are donating online, or simply make a notation on the bottom left corner of your check.
What will you accomplish by volunteering with Catholic Charities: You will help the those in need feel important and that they are cared for, especially if you choose an opportunity to directly interact with the people, you will enhance their lives by initiating social relationships. This is incredibly important to people who are often "invisible" and "avoided." Friendly interactions boost self confidence, sense of belonging and happiness. Also, you will help create a connection between the poor and vulnerable and the broader community.
