1. We are so excited to be participating in the first-ever online day of Catholic Giving in Northeast Ohio!
The event is called We Give Catholic, and will take place on Tuesday, November 29, which is Giving Tuesday – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, a national day of giving for nonprofits.
2. Donating to benefit is a seamless experience that you can do from your computer, tablet or smartphone at any time beginning at midnight on November 29 and continuing for a 24 hour period. Secure, tax-deductable donations will be accepted on the website weGiveCatholic.org. By designating "Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine" , the money you contribute will benefit us directly and place us in the running to receive cash prizes throughout the day.
3. There will be at least $50,000 in prize money given away on that day as we participate in a friendly competition with other Diocesan nonprofit organizations.
4. All participating organizations and donors will be able to see which organizations are leading in each prize category by watching the “leaderboard” online. Most prizes will be determined by the number of people who give to the organization. The more people who donate for "Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine", the better chance we have at winning additional cash for our organization. There is also one $3,000 prize given for the largest donation of the day.
