As we embark on a new year, the Catholic Foundation is making changes to a traditional, well-loved annual event. In past years, the Catholic Foundation held its Gala in February as the signature event for the Diocese of St. Petersburg, bringing together 600+ supporters from across our five counties. Taking into account the current status of the pandemic and concern for the safety of potential guests, a live event will not be held.
Instead, the Catholic Foundation is moving forward with a 2021 Giving Challenge, inviting all past supporters and those interested in joining the cause, to transition event support into a challenge gift.
“With no event expense, 100% of all donations raised through the challenge can be directed to Catholic school tuition assistance, affordable housing projects; regional youth ministry and young adult programs; and diocesan evangelization efforts,” said Meegan Wright, Executive Director of the Catholic Foundation. “Making an impact with every single dollar donated is very exciting!”
