Support Catholic Charities on Great Give Day

Great Give Day is the BIGGEST online giving event of the year in Northeast Iowa! It takes place from 12:00 midnight – 11:59 pm on May 3, 2015.

Great Give Day is a 24-hour, online giving event for Northeast Iowa nonprofits presented by the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque.  The online event is taking place in conjunction with Give Local America, a day devised to promote online giving to local non-profits across the country, and Catholic Charities is taking part in the fun! 

Your support of Catholic Charities on Great Give Day will help sustain the important work we undertake everyday, like providing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of ‘Charity Care’ counseling every year, or an affordable place to call home for families, seniors or adults with disabilities with limited financial resources, or services and outreach to numerous at-risk populations in our communities.

Please mark your calendar for May 3th and don’t forget to visit to make your pledge of $10 or more to Catholic Charities.  

Here’s how it works:

1. Find us on the website:

Navigate directly to our Donation Page on, or donate via the embedded form at the bottom of the page.

2. Give!

Starting at midnight on Tuesday, May 3, you can start making gifts of $10 or more through Every gift made to Catholic Charities through the site will come directly to us, and will help us to qualify for additional hourly bonus prizes from local sponsors! Check out the hourly prize schedule here

3. Spread the word!

Let your friends know that you gave and encourage them to do the same on Facebook and Twitter using #GreatGiveDay. Of course, you can also send a good old-fashioned email or even tell them in person. The goal is to raise dollars and awareness for Northeast Iowa nonprofits, including Catholic Charities!
