Fundraising and Art of Caring

We celebrated the 30th Annual Art of Caring, having raised over $5.8 million during those 30 years of “Compassion with Purpose.” Our signature annual fundraiser, the largest for Catholic Charities in Lake County, brings together civic, philanthropic and community donors to support Catholic Charities and its critical programs and services in Lake County. Just this past year, more than 60,000 Lake County individuals were assisted, regardless of race, religion, nationality or gender, as a result of the generosity of our donors.

The Women’s Board’s mission of fundraising remains at the forefront of all of our efforts, and our goal is to grow and enhance our fundraising abilities every year. All members of our Women’s Board are required to participate in fundraising through their time, talents and resources.
