Catholic Charities


The Mission of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Monterey is to provide service to people in need, to advocate for social justice, and to call other people of good will to do the same.

The Big Idea

Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Monterey advocates for social justice and serving those in need. Currently they are emphasizing their work supporting people dealing with the negative impacts of the pandemic and helping them find long-term stability. Despite many programs to support people’s needs during this time, not all are eligible for benefits and Catholic Charities prioritizes those who cannot receive public assistance or are otherwise at risk. Many people from all backgrounds, including different religions, reach out for financial and emotional assistance after dealing with hardship.

“Catholic Charities has compassionate workers who care. It is a blessing knowing that there are people and programs that help in a time of need. Because of their help, I did not lose my apartment.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
