Major Gift Initiative 

In alignment with the current and future needs of the Archdiocese of Chicago, a team of Major Gift Officers are working with donors to promote and prioritize Cardinal Cupich’s key initiatives for the Archdiocese. 

The Major Gift Office provides opportunities and direction in fueling and fulfilling the mission of the Church at both the archdiocesan and parish levels. Major Gift Officers will be a connection for the Archdiocese, working at the vicariate and deanery levels and offering stewardship and development best practices for parishes where requested.
