Catholic Charities to Benefit from the GREAT GIVE Palm Beach and Martin Counties on April 24

24 Hours CAN Change Our Community

On April 24, 2018, from midnight to midnight, Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Palm Beach is participating in the Great Give Palm Beach & Martin Counties, a 24-hour online giving event hosted by United Way of Palm Beach County, United Way of Martin County, Nonprofits First, and Achieve. Since the Great Give began in 2014, more than $10 million has been raised to benefit over 500 local nonprofits in Palm Beach and Martin counties and Catholic Charities is excited to be a part of the event again this year.  

From midnight to midnight on April 24, Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Palm Beach will be one of the numerous local participating nonprofits. This community-wide event will celebrate the spirit of philanthropy and the collective effort it takes to strengthen our community while raising critical funds for local nonprofits. Every donation made online will be stretched further if you donate to Catholic Charities through its own unique GREAT GIVE web site:

https://www.greatgiveflorida.org/organizations/catholic-charities-of-the-diocese-of-palm-beach

Here’s another reason to give during the GREAT GIVE: gifts are multiplied by additional dollars from bonus pool dollars and hourly prizes from Great Give Palm Beach & Martin Counties - making donor gifts go even further than it would on any other day.

In a message sent to Catholic Charities supporters, Frankie Chevere, Executive Director, explained to donors how impactful their gift is this year. “Your donation will go a long way in helping us serve the poorest of the poor and the community's most vulnerable through services such as disaster recovery, homeless prevention, and case management for human trafficking survivors. We hope you will consider supporting us on April 24,” said Chevere.
