Memorial & Honor Gifts

A memorial gift in the name of a deceased person comforts loved ones. An honor gift celebrates a special occasion or says thank you. We'll send a card without disclosing the gift amount.

How to Give

Make your memorial or honor gift on our General Donations page. First choose an amount and click "add donation." A new page opens where you select "tribute gift" and fill in the gift details. Click here to give online now.

To give by phone, call Margaret Hughes, Director of Annual Fund, (312) 655-7012. You may also mail a check with gift instructions to: Catholic Charities, Attention: Development, 721 N. LaSalle, Chicago, IL 60654.
