Archbishop's Appeal

Methods of Donating

Joining in the Archbishop's Appeal's work is simple and the way that you give is up to you!

Donations can be made at anytime during the year.


In each parish, pastors and appeal coordinators discuss and encourage participation in the Archbishop's Appeal. Envelopes are provided in pews and parishioners may decide to make a one-time gift or pledge commitment.

Direct Mail

You may receive a letter from  Archbishop Gustavo requesting your support and participation in the Archbishop’s Appeal Campaign. You can participate by responding to either mail request or the In-Pew request and are not expected to give to both, but rather are encouraged to give in the method you prefer.

Cash Contributions

Complete a Pledge Card and submit it with your cash contribution. Contributions can be made in the form of cash, check, or money order.

Pledge Commitment 

Complete a Pledge Card with your name and pledge amount which is typically divided into ten payments since the Appeal begins in February and ends in December. (This allows for approximately a month to turn in Pledge Cards and then leaves 10 months for the pledge to be fulfilled.)

Pledge Commitment with Credit Card Payment 

Complete a Pledge Card with your Credit Card information including credit card number and expiration and number of months you would like your account to be charged.

Pledge Commitment with Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT's)

Complete a Pledge Card and submit it with a voided check from your checking/savings account and your bank information including the number of months you would like your checking/savings account to have an automatic withdrawal processed.
