Consider a pledge to the Catholic Services Appeal
The Catholic Services Appeal is a pledge program. While one-time cash gifts are welcomed, pledging often allows for more generous — and affordable — contributions to the Catholic Services Appeal.
With a pledge, you can spread out your CSA gift over several months and incorporate this sacrifice into your family budget. You have the option of making an initial payment when you fill out your pledge card, then paying the remaining balance with nine additional monthly payments.
Online giving helps the Archdiocese of Detroit answer our Holy Father’s call to care for “our common home.” Online payments allow the CSA Office to save on postage and paper, because they eliminate the need for monthly mailings. With thousands of generous donors contributing to the CSA each year, this amounts to a considerable environmental savings — and is good stewardship.
We encourage you to set up your gift or pledge online at give.aod.org.
Please specify your parish on the donation form. If you choose not to use the online giving portal, but would like to make your pledge payments electronically, you may call (888) 331-8695.
Your CSA gifts at work
Your gift to the Catholic Services Appeal makes a difference in countless lives throughout the Archdiocese of Detroit and beyond. The more than 100 ministries, programs, and services the CSA funds are Opening Doors to Witness Christ each and every day.
Be assured that no CSA dollars have ever been — or ever will be — used to settle claims of any nature against the Archdiocese, or to support projects outside of the Archdiocese, other than six specific national collections of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. The archdiocesan lay Finance Council oversees the distribution of CSA funds to ensure all reach the ministries, programs, and services for which they are intended. (A comprehensive list can be found on the Archdiocese of Detroit website, at aod.org/csa.)
The budget for the 2019 Catholic Services Appeal is $17,921,557. The pie chart below illustrates how your CSA gifts did so much for so many last year.
