iGiveCatholic 2024

Celebrated annually on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, iGiveCatholic is the U.S. Catholic Church’s Giving Day that brings the Catholic community together to give thanks and give back. As a giving day created to celebrate our unique Catholic heritage, #iGiveCatholic inspires faithful stewards to “Give Catholic” on Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving. The goal of the #iGiveCatholic Giving Day is to rally our Catholic community in support of the organizations that shape our souls: our parishes, schools, and nonprofit ministries.

The Catholic Foundation of North Georgia is pleased to bring this giving day to the Archdiocese of Atlanta. Over the last seven years, $4 million has been raised through this annual campaign to support projects, scholarships, and more at our local Catholic institutions.

For Organizations: Registration Runs August 19 – November 1

All parishes, schools, ministries, and nonprofit that want to pariticpate in iGiveCatholic 2024 will need to register their organization in order to participate in the giving day. Registration opens August 19 and will be available at atlanta.igivecatholic.org.

For Donors: Advanced Giving begins November 18 and runs through Giving Tuesday, December 3.
