Catholic Charities’ Annual Leadership Breakfast Campaign

Forty years ago, the first Leadership Breakfast was held. It was a simple breakfast prepared and served by staff of Catholic Charities, lasting only one hour and raising $50,000. Today, the Leadership Breakfast Campaign has grown into the largest source of unrestricted support for Catholic Charities’ mission and work. Since our first breakfast, this effort has raised over $60 million in cumulative support to assist our fellow Marylanders in need.

This year’s goal is to raise $5,000,000. As of December 14, 2020, we have raised $4,328,717. Please consider helping us meet our goal by making a donation through the link below. To learn more about the programs that benefit from monies raised through the Leadership Breakfast, we invite you to watch videos of this Fall’s Lunch & Learn events.

Your participation at the leadership level in this annual campaign not only sustains our work, but allows Catholic Charities the flexibility to innovate, evolve and quickly respond to new and changing needs in our community. To learn more about Catholic Charities’ leadership giving levels, please see the Annual Giving Societies listed here.

Catholic Charities has a long history of institutional courage and developing innovative solutions that change the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. Your generous support makes this transformative work possible.
