Commemorate Catholic Charities' Centennial

2017 Annual Fund Drive Honors 100-Year Legacy

Now, more than ever, your commitment matters.
Join us as we commemorate our 100-year legacy of providing help and creating hope.

Right now, our fellow New Yorkers need us. Neighbors like 49-year-old Leroy Bracey, who is facing blindness and homelessness. 

Leroy has myopic degeneration. Unable to see or work, he became homeless. But since then, he's found a temporary home through an affiliate of Catholic Charities. Meanwhile, our Guild for the Blind has connected Leroy with a caseworker and enrolled him in classes to learn to better navigate his world without sight and eventually land a job. 

This is the kind of help and hope you make possible through Catholic Charities. And now is the perfect time to show God's mercy to someone like Leroy who really needs help.

We're kicking off our 2017 ANNUAL FUND DRIVE—our most critical fundraising effort of the year. It has special significance right now, as Catholic Charities is celebrating 100 years of meeting human need…right here in New York.

Your special centennial gift will help provide food, shelter and other urgently needed assistance to desperate individuals and families who are turning to us for help.

So, please  make your centennial gift to Catholic Charities by June 15, 2017. Because your compassionate support makes our work possible… this year, and always. 


 Msgr. Kevin Sullivan
Executive Director, Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York

P.S. You're critical to our mission, and to our continued success. Please support the 2017 ANNUAL FUND now. So we can continue to help deserving neighbors like Leroy, now and for years to come.
