2019 Bishop’s Appeal a Success

As this year comes to an end, it is a time to count our blessings.  We are very thankful for you!  With your support, we raised more than $5.9 million from 27,993 families and individuals. 

Your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal helped bring joy to young couples wanting to start their family through Adoption Services at Catholic Charities.  Your gift helped train care ministers to be the face of Christ to those who are homebound or in a nursing home.  Through your support of the Appeal you helped this special ministry bring Holy Communion to many people.  

Thank you for your generosity! 



Impacting Lives for More Than 20 Years

Since its founding in 1997, the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Green Bay has distributed more than $35,000,000 to support Church ministries and services for the spiritual, educational and social needs of God’s people.

We can help you:

  • Make a gift that immediately makes a difference
  • Make a gift that both gives you a life income and helps others
  • Make a gift that will help others later through deferred giving
  • Make a gift to a new or existing fund that
    benefits a parish or ministry

Whether you are interested in assisting a ministry of the Church, educating our seminarians, remembering the Church in your will, helping your parish or the Church in many other ways bring Christ to thousands of people throughout Northeastern Wisconsin, the Catholic Foundation can assist you.

Each gift helps. Thank you on behalf of everyone you are assisting.
