WAYS TO GIVE
Become a member of our RECURRING DONOR program, the BLESSED CARLO ACUTIS SOCIETY.
Carlo Acutis, who died of leukemia at age 15, was known as a computer genius. People even referred to him as the patron saint of the Internet. Acutis created a website to catalog miracles and managed sites for local Catholic organizations. He used the Internet in service of the Gospel to reach as many people as possible. When diagnosed with leukemia, he offered his sufferings for then Pope Benedict XVI and the Church and asked to be buried at Assisi because of his love for St. Francis. In 2013 he was named a Servant of God and in 2018 was declared Venerable. Next, should it come, is canonization which requires two miracles verified by the Church. In early 2020, his first miracle was attributed to him from his intercession from heaven in 2013 to save the life of a Brazilian who was suffering from a rare pancreatic disease.
You can become a member of the Blessed Carlo Acutis Society by clicking here and making a recurring gift online or by checking the “recurring gift” box on your pledge card. There is no minimum gift amount to become a member of this society. All you have to do is set up a recurring gift and you are all set!
What does being a recurring donor mean? It means that you are committing to support the United Catholic Appeal on an ongoing basis (monthly, quarterly, annually). Once you set up your recurring gift, it continues on at that amount and frequency until you change or cancel it. This is a great way to give because:
Transactions are paperless
It reduces costs associated with mailing, postage and processing
You can increase, decrease, pause or stop your recurring gift at any time
