The Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux is one of 28 participating archdioceses and dioceses for the #iGiveCatholic crowdfunding event that will be held Nov. 27.

The fourth annual #iGiveCatholic will be held on #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

“This is an exciting opportunity for everyone in our diocese to celebrate Catholic philanthropy,” Bishop Shelton Fabre said. “We truly believe that every donation, no matter how large or small, makes a difference in our community.”

In 2017, the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux had 35 participating organizations who together raised over $175,000 in just 24 hours for local ministries. These funds helped our parishes and schools accomplish projects such as new digital billboards for a church parish, replacement of sewage systems, and even new electrical wiring for lights in classrooms.

“Our local goal is to raise $200,000 for the 40+ participating nonprofits within our community. Our Catholic Foundation is excited to offer a number of cash incentive prizes for our participating ministries to help encourage their excitement and participation throughout this initiative," Fabre said.
