Make a Gift Directly to Catholic Social Services
We welcome your financial support of Catholic Social Services (CSS), one of the largest private non-profit charitable providers of social services in Pennsylvania. As a vital ministry of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, we have a 200-year history of serving people of all faiths. CSS is comprised of 12 separate 501 (c)3 charitable corporations which are together governed by a Board of Directors, who ensure that all funds are used solely used for programs and services that assist and support those in need. We confidently assure you that your contribution will be put to good use in providing quality services and compassionate care for those who need our help most.
Support CSS with a gift to the Catholic Charities Appeal
