Donations and Appeals
Bequests and Wills
One way of supporting the works of the Archdiocese is by making a bequest – a gift left in a will. For many, such a gift will be their legacy to the faith community they belonged to, a gift that will be remembered forever. >> Read More

Donations are a wonderful way to support the work of the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn. You can make a single, monthly or annual pledge using different methods, including credit card or direct debit payment. Every donation, whether big or small, helps to ensure that the Archdiocese can continue to provide programs and services that bring hope and joy to many people in the community. Donations in some instances can be tax deductible.
Through its parish network, the Archdiocese conducts many worthwhile Annual Appeals in support of its various organizations and agencies. The most significant of these Appeals are in aid of:
- The Father’s Day Appeal – held in September to raise funds for the care and support of our archdiocesan retired priests.
- The Good Shepherd Sunday Appeal – held on the fourth Sunday of Easter to raise funds for the education of our seminarians to the priesthood.
- Mission Sunday Appeal – held in October to help the Church’s missionary activity through prayer and sacrifice.
- Project Compassion – Caritas Australia’s annual Lenten Appeal to raise funds for the world’s poor to end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity.
- Propagation of the Faith Appeal – held between May and August in support of faith communities and their needs around the developing world.
- Archbishop’s Christmas Appeal – held at Christmas to raise funds for specific church related projects within and outside Australia who are urgently in need of financial support.
- Good Friday Collection – to support the people and places of the Holy Land.
If you require a refund of your payment, please follow the below instructions:
- Contact our office – firstname.lastname@example.org or 02 6239 9801 and outline the issue
- Provide the transaction details including time, date, reference and value
- On consideration of a reasonable request, such as incorrect payment you should expect the funds to be reimbursed (only to account where debit occurred) within 1 week.
The Church welcomes your donations, both large and small, whether offered weekly or donated during a targeted appeal.
