Several ministries of the Sisters of Charity Health System will be participating in the first-ever online day of Catholic giving in Northeast Ohio. The event is called We Give Catholic and will take place Tuesday, November 29, which is Giving Tuesday—a national day of giving for nonprofits.
You can help by sharing the news or making a gift. Donating is a seamless experience you can do from your computer or mobile device any time from midnight on November 29 and continuing for a 24-hour period. Secure, tax-deductible donations will be accepted on the website weGiveCatholic.org.
By designating St. Vincent Charity Medical Center, Joseph’s Home, Regina Health Center, Light of Hearts Villa and Catholic Community Connection any gifts you contribute will benefit these ministries directly and place them in the running to receive cash prizes throughout the day. There will be at least $50,000 in prize money given away on that day as we participate in a friendly competition with other Diocesan nonprofit organizations.
Donors will be able to see which organizations are leading in each prize category by watching the leaderboard online. Most prizes will be determined by the number of people who give to the organization. The more people who donate, the better chance we have at winning additional cash for our ministries. There is also one $3,000 prize given for the largest donation of the day.
We encourage you to look at the pages for St. Vincent Charity Medical Center, Joseph’s Home, Regina Health Center, Light of Hearts Villa and Catholic Community Connection on weGiveCatholic.org. There you will see the special ways in which gifts will be used toward our healing mission.
