Launched locally in 2015 by the Catholic Community Foundation (Archdiocese of New Orleans), the inaugural #iGiveCatholic Giving Day transformed online giving for parishes, schools and nonprofit ministries in the Archdiocese of New Orleans. Since that time, #iGiveCatholic has grown to yield great national impact, expanding each year to include more donors, diocese and participating organizations.
