Day of Giving
SAVE THE DATE: The next Day of Giving will be January 29-30, 2019, 12 PM EST - 12 PM EST!
Twenty years ago, Saint Pope John Paul II said to an audience of Catholic educators in New Orleans: “Yours is a great gift to the Church, a great gift to your nation.” Countless people in our country have been blessed by the many gifts of Catholic schools. However, many adults have lost touch with their local Catholic school community. It is time for those people who have been impacted by your school to reconnect with the community that gave them so much, and give back.
With this recognition in mind, NCEA is pleased to present the online giving campaign: Many Gifts, One Nation: A Day of Giving to Catholic Schools. Make your gift to a Catholic school today! This day is made possible with the generous support of FACTS.
For the 2018 Day of Giving, more than $859,000 was raised from 6,957 donations to 539 schools, six dioceses and NCEA. This is just one example of the strength Catholic schools hold when we work together to promote the faith-filled and academically excellent education we all have at the core of our shared mission.
Information for Schools/Dioceses:

Information for Donors
Between January 29, 12 PM and January 30, 12 PM, search the Many Gifts database (which will be linked on this page) for the Catholic schools that have made a difference in your life. You can give to as many schools/dioceses as you would like. Your gift will go only to the school you have selected and your donor information will not be shared with any other school or organization.
Can’t find a Catholic school? They may have opted out of participating or closed. Consider making a gift to your local arch/diocese or NCEA instead! In the “Special Instructions” field, please indicate the school’s name you’d like to make the gift “in honor of."
MasterCard, Visa and Discover will be the only accepted forms of payment. A receipt will be sent directly to your email once your gift has been made.
Don’t forget to let others know that you participated. Share on your social media networks and challenge your former teachers, classmates and friends to give as well! Remember—Many Gifts, One Nation will only be available for 24 hours. Make sure every gift happens during this time!
