The annual #weGiveCatholic day of online giving has become a major fundraising source for many Catholic organizations across Northeast Ohio, and Joseph’s Home is no exception. On November 30, 133 donors raised $32,444 for Joseph’s Home, exceeding the goal of raising $30,000.
Organized by the Catholic Community Foundation, this one-day giving event provides Catholic schools, parishes, Catholic Charities sites/programs, special ministries and nonprofits affiliated with the Diocese of Cleveland the opportunity to raise awareness and funds.
Pushing the fundraising goal over the top was a $10,000 dollar-for-dollar match of donations from Kevin Gallagher. Several board members also created their own fundraising pages. Joseph’s Home received an additional $1,500 award from the Catholic Community Foundation for having the second highest number of individual donors on the not-for-profit leaderboard. All told, #weGiveCatholic raised $3,188,454 through 10,693 donors.
“We are forever grateful for the generosity of so many supporters of Joseph’s and Mary’s Home. The money raised during #weGiveCatholic is helping to make the vision to serve both medically fragile men and women experiencing homelessness a reality,” said Joseph’s Home Executive Director Beth Graham. “If you weren’t able to participate in this day of giving, we encourage you to consider Joseph’s Home in your year-end giving plans.”
