Donation Options

Catholic Charities responds to the needs of people living in poverty throughout Northwest Indiana. Last year, we helped nearly 9,500 individuals and families from Lake, Porter, LaPorte and Starke counties. Our services include providing food, clothing, pregnancy services, financial assistance and workshops to help clients on a path to self-sufficiency, immigration assistance to immigrants, refugees, and their families, and more that address the unique needs of communities. We couldn’t do this without you and all the other generous donors who make this ministry possible.

Using the buttons below, you may make a one-time donation or set up a recurring contribution. You may use your credit card or have the payment come through your PayPal account.

If you need help setting up your gift, please contact:

We help people living in poverty.

Catholic Charities is a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent provided by law and will be used as designated. In the unlikely event that a designated area is overfunded, we will apply your gift to a similar program need.

We are committed to accountability and transparency—critical to the relationship we have with all our partners. We will not share, sell, or trade your personal information ever.
