Someday, the poor will forgive us for our charity.
Until then, let us give what we can.

Ways To Donate To Catholic Charities & the St. Vincent's Programs

Catholic Charities & the St. Vincent's Programs have been serving individuals and families for 75 years. While we are affiliated with the Diocese of Reno, we are a separately-incorporated 501(c)3 nonprofit agency. We are independent, self-funded, and operate under the leadership of our executive director, who serves at the pleasure of our volunteer board of trustees, made up of business and community leaders from the areas we serve.

We are part of the nation's largest social-services network through our affiliation with Catholic Charities USA, which serves more than seven million people each year.

You have several options when choosing to make a gift to Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada:

  • General Cash Donations We are the safety net for many hundreds of thousands of people and families in need—people of all ages, backgrounds and religions—across Northern Nevada. Our services are needed now more than ever. 88 cents of every dollar raised goes to help people in need. Your donation means we can be there when people need us.

  • In-Kind Donations
    • Thrift Shop Your donation of gently used or new items to the St. Vincent’s Thrift Shop enables us to feed hungry people and support other programs through sales.

    • Food Donations Your donation of food to either the St. Vincent’s Food Pantry or the St. Vincent’s Dining Room is very important in helping us reduce the cost of purchasing food to distribute.

A gift of celebration is a wonderful way to commemorate birthdays, graduations, weddings, promotions, and retirements.
