The CCHD Collection

CCHD’s work is funded through contributions of the Catholic faithful. Each November, a second collection is taken up in the parishes of the Diocese. 

Seventy-five percent of the amount collected is distributed through CCHD’s national grant program, and twenty-five percent of the funds collected stay in the Diocese to fund local anti-poverty efforts.  We use our 25% to fund community development or economic development projects that serve people in the diocese. 

We also have two nationally-funded projects located here in the Arlington Diocese. See how your contributions help lift up the poor in the Arlington Diocese.
