On the last Tuesday of November, it is designated as Giving Tuesday. It gives those who want to contribute to a non-profit in their community.
It is no different when it comes to Catholic organizations. Here are some recommended ministries or organizations you can give.
Headquartered in Philadelphia, Generation Life has been at the forefront of promoting the pro-life message with an emphasis on chastity since 2000. They have visited classrooms throughout the Greater Philadelphia and Mid-Atlantic region. Every summer, a team will visit the Jersey Shore during the high school senior week with their Beach Outreach.
This organization has seen countless minds and hearts moved by the message that pure love is worth waiting and fighting for. Visit here to give and learn more.
The Culture Project
Founded in 2014, The Culture Project is a dynamic organization that proclaims the dignity of every human life and “the richness of living sexual integrity, inviting our culture to become fully alive.” They have teams of young, dynamic missionaries present in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Toledo, and Cleveland.
For nearly a decade, they have reached more than 945,000 teens and young adults, 22,000,000 with their social media campaigns and postings, and visited 1000 parishes. Their work is not done yet as they hope for your support.

Two out of three Catholics are likely to vote for a candidate that supports gay marriage and abortion in every given election. The goal of CatholicVote is to “inspire every Catholic in America to live out the truths of our faith in public life.” They have run campaigns to support pro-life candidates in many battleground states and will continue to do so every year.
They will count on your support here.
When meeting with St. John Paul the Great at the dawn of the new millennium, Curtis Martin was instructed to “be soldiers”. That message from the saint echoed through his mind as he decides to form an organization that trains young men and women to help build strong friendships among Catholics attending secular, state, and private universities in 1998.
Thus, it became FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students). It started out with just two missionaries. Today, it has grown to more than 600 missionaries on 187 campuses in 47 states of the United States and the countries of Mexico, Austria, the United Kingdom, and Germany.

Students for Life of America
Since 2006, Students for Life of America has been building up advocates who will defend life and end abortion. They are serving 1300 campuses, raised $62 million in social media campaigns, $71.4 million for moms in need, and changed the minds of 25% of the people they have encountered with campus visits.
Not only do they have chapters on college campuses, but they have also on the high school level as well.
Following Dobbs's Supreme Court decision in June, the organizations know that the battle will now return to the states, and it is crucial that you support their efforts to help make every state abortion-free while helping them change hearts and minds on the issue of abortion.
Help them continue to change hearts and minds here.
