#iGiveCatholic 2020 Arch/Diocesan/Foundation Partner Portal

This portal, exclusively for our arch/diocesan and foundation partners, will be a placeholder you can come back to for registration links, important details, documents, webinar recordings, webinar slides, communication examples, and other information for the 2020 giving day. We hope this can also be a place where we can share ideas and resources other dioceses or foundations are using to communicate, train, or promote #iGiveCatholic. Please check back frequently! As resources are available, they will be added here. If you don’t see something you would like us to add over time, please let us know as this portal has been developed specifically for you.

NOTE: This page is hidden so bookmark this page! The resources provided here will be most pertinent to you and your internal team there at the arch/diocese or foundation. The Resources page that is most valuable to your participating organizations is still available publicly on the #iGiveCatholic website under Resources.
