Your tax-deductible donation to Gather4Good® goes directly to paying for the cost of supplies in our care kits.
Sponsor Catholic United Financial covers the costs of the event, activities and publicity, so 100 percent of your donation goes directly to purchasing the personal care items that make up our kits.
In other words, your donation goes to the people who need the help…those suffering from the effects of homelessness, abuse, poverty and natural disasters.
All donations made to Gather4Good® are tax-deductible and are accepted through the Catholic United Financial Foundation. Each kit costs approximately $5. Volunteers at each event assemble 2,000 to 3,000 kits. The more donations we receive, the more kits we can provide.

The story of a care kit begins with you, the donor. Your donation provides the funds we need to purchase the personal care items that comprise a care kit. We ship the supplies to the Gather4Good® event sites across the Upper Midwest. At an event, a volunteer steps up to the assembly line and opens a drawstring bag. As the volunteer walks through the line, he or she takes an individual personal care item, like soap, a toothbrush, comb and lotion, and combines these into the bag.
Before the bag is closed, the volunteer sits at a table and writes out a note of encouragement to the future recipient of this bag…a note that lets that person know the volunteer cares about them, even though they will never meet.
Then the bag is placed with others and picked up by the staff of a local charity for distribution to families and people who are waiting for new a job, a shelter from abuse, or a safe place to live after a natural disaster.
This event is sponsored by Catholic United Financial, a financial products company that transforms profits from the sale of life insurance, annuities and retirement products into programs that support and amplify your Catholic community’s ability to thrive and grow.
