About Us

Mission

Forging Partners in Generosity

To serve the mission and vision of the Archdiocese of Chicago, the Stewardship & Development Department secures resources to support the spiritual, sacramental, educational, charitable and evangelical growth for parishes and all we serve. We provide our benefactors, at both the parish and archdiocesan level, opportunities and direction in fueling and fulfilling the mission of the Church.  By cultivating and stewarding relationships in a partnership of generosity, we walk together in the footsteps of Christ and continue His work.

How We Serve

We provide opportunities for our parishes and the people of our local communities to put faith into action. It’s through our initiatives and programs that we seek the faith formation of others, and encourage people to deepen their faith in Christ and live as disciples through each aspect of life. 

Your Gift Impacts…

The student who reaps the benefits of Catholic education, but can no longer afford tuition due to a parent’s illness. Donations provide scholarships to students with financial need and allow them to continue growing their faith in the classroom and receive quality education. 

The parish that desperately needs handicapped accessible facilities for its parishioners, but doesn’t have the funds to support execution. Charitable gifts benefit the Annual Catholic Appeal, which aims to sustain parish programs and facilities.  

Your contributions and generosity are deeply appreciated, much needed and make a real difference in the lives of many. Please consider donating to the Archdiocese of Chicago, and help us as we continue fulfilling the mission of our local Church.
