If you give us a directive, we can charge your credit card for the same amount every month. Even if it is only $10 per month, this adds up over the course of the year.
Without the financial support of private foundations and corporations, many of our critical programs would not be able to succeed. We are always seeking program or event sponsorships, so please give us a call to discuss the opportunities we have available.
If your organization would like to participate in a group volunteer project, please call Ashlee Wolf at (559) 237-0851 ext. 1105.
To encourage employees to make charitable gifts, many corporations agree to match personal donations with an equal or greater corporate contribution. Catholic Charities is an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation and we qualify for matching funds from many companies. You could double or even triple the impact of your generosity. Contact your employer’s human resources department for more information.
If you are interested in setting up a matching gift program, please contact us at (559) 237-0851.
In Kind gifts of food are welcome at our food pantries in Fresno, Merced and Bakersfield. Grocery store gift cards are also accepted at all of our locations.

If you or your organization is interested in holding a food drive or sponsoring our pantry for a day, please contact Ashlee Wolf, Development Director at (559) 237-0851 Ext. 1105 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Catholic Charities distributes over 2 million pounds of food each year thanks to your generosity.
Donate Basic Necessities
We do not have the funds to purchase basic necessities such as toilet paper, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, shampoo and more. Additionally, our families with young children are always in need of formula and diapers. Donations of these products helps lift these families up out of poverty and gives them hope for the future.
Donate Clothing or Household Items
The Catholic Charities Thrift Store in Fresno serves a dual purpose. Individuals and families that are in crisis and in need of clothing can receive vouchers redeemable for items in the store. It’s also open to the public Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. (closed for lunch 12:15 p.m. – 1 p.m. All proceeds from the Thrift Store go directly to the Social Service Programs of Catholic Charities.
Donations of gently used clothing, blankets, household goods, electronics and furniture are greatly appreciated. Clothing and blankets can also be accepted at our Merced site.
