Make A Gift

Donate Online

Making an online, unrestricted gift provides Catholic Charities with flexibility to use your donation where its needed most.

Monthly Giving

Make a commitment that lasts all year. Online monthly giving provides steady and predictable funding, allowing us to confidently plan for initiatives and projects without worrying whether we’ll have the needed funds.​

Donate By Mail

To make a gift by mail, send your check or money order to the following address: Catholic Charities Attention: Development 2740 SE Powell Blvd. Portland, Oregon 97202 ​

Donate By Phone

To make a credit card gift by phone, call us at 503-688-2656.​

Securities & Stocks

Gifts of marketable securities or other assets are welcome and appreciated. These types of gifts may also enable you to avoid paying capital gains tax.

 The process is simple — just call or write your broker and instruct them to transfer the securities you wish to donate to our brokerage account as follows:

Charles Schwab & Co., Inc.
For the benefit of Catholic Charities
Account # 8154-4056
DTC # 0164

NOTE: Please notify our Development Office at 503-688-2656 when you make a gift of securities, as our brokerage firm does not provide us with donor information. 

If you have any questions regarding the transfer process or gifts of other types of property such as real estate, life insurance, or retirement plan assets, please contact 503-688-2620 for assistance.

Matching Gift

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Contact your company for details and necessary forms.

Catholic Charities can be selected as a United Way Donor Choice Option — just write Catholic Charities, Portland, Oregon on your United Way contribution form. Catholic Charities also participates in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) for employees of the Federal Government. Our CFC number is 15119.​

Honor or Memorial Gift

Gifts made to Catholic Charities “in honor” of a family member or friend are a perfect way to celebrate a happy occasion, such as a wedding, birthday, anniversary, or other milestone. Gifts made “in memory” of a late family member or friend are a thoughtful way to celebrate the memory of your loved one.​

Memorial gifts are often made in lieu of sending flowers. We will send notification of your gift to a surviving family member, if you wish.

Honor and memorial gifts can be made online by selecting the option on the donate form or by sending your gift and tribute information to our office.

Catholic Charities can send notification of your tribute (but not the amount) to the person of your choosing.

Your gift to Catholic Charities of Oregon helps us meet the ongoing demand for basic services for those in a time of need.  Thank you for your kind contribution!
