Good Samaritan Tree
The Good Samaritan Tree (pictured below) is displayed in our reception area. Its brass leaves are engraved with the names of people and businesses who have donated to this program. Some have chosen to honor or remember a friend or family member with their inscriptions. You can purchase a leaf on our tree for $100 or more. Inscriptions are limited to 3 lines of 30 characters. Please click the Leaf button below to make a contribution and we will send you a receipt. You are welcome to visit our office and view your leaf.
Tribute and Memorial Gifts In Lieu of Flowers
Contribute to Catholic Charities in honor of a person, in memory of someone who has died, or to mark an important occasion. We will send an appropriate acknowledgement of the contribution to you and to the person you specify to receive the notice.
Employee Matching Gifts
Do you know if your employer would match your contribution to Catholic Charities? Many companies match dollar-for-dollar the money their employees give to non-profits. Some also contribute to charities where their employees volunteer. Contact your Human Resources Department to obtain a matching gift form, fill out the employee portion and mail it to Catholic Charities.

When we receive a donation, we acknowledge the contribution with a thank you letter. Within that letter we state, “Catholic Charities Bureau, Inc. is recognized by the IRS pursuant to Section 501c (3). No goods or services were provided for this contribution. You are entitled to claim a charitable deduction on your federal income tax return for this gift and any future donations you wish to make.” Thus, your contributions are fully tax-deductible.
Our volunteers are a crucial part of Catholic Charities and the services we are able to provide. Your time spent volunteering allows us to help others, and is tremendously appreciated.
We currently need volunteers for the following positions:
Volunteers are needed to answer phones, greet the clients we serve and others who come to our office and assist with data entry, filing and other miscellaneous office work, as needed.
We need volunteers to pick up donated food from local food drives, to help distribute food during our weekly food pantry hours and during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons (both in our office and by delivering to those confined to their homes), and to identify and develop additional food sources.
