Nebraska’s Catholic dioceses come together for the first Nebraska Catholic Day of Giving

Catholics across Nebraska will come together on May 1 to celebrate and support the state’s many parishes, schools and ministries during the first Nebraska Catholic Day of Giving (NCDG).

The 24-hour fundraising event will showcase the impact Catholic organizations have on the state while encouraging support of those organizations.

More than 100 Catholic organizations across the state have signed up to participate, with many more expected to join the inaugural event, according to Bree Kotulak, Interim Director of the Stewardship and Development Office at the Archdiocese of Omaha.

“Our shared Catholic faith has had an impact on Nebraska even before it became a state,” Kotulak said. “NCDG ensures that we can continue to make disciples far into the future, recognizing that when we give Catholic, we can do more.”

Kotulak said that NCDG will replace Joy of Giving, the archdiocese’s former annual fundraising event.

Katie Ostgren, Director of Stewardship and Development for the Diocese of Lincoln, calls NCDG “an outstanding opportunity for Catholics throughout our great state to unite as one to emphasize our shared Catholic mission and values.”

Nebraska Catholics often have strong ties to different parts of the state, said Greg Fisher, Director of Operations for the Diocese of Grand Island.

“NCDG will allow them to support the places where they are currently involved as well as the places that have meant so much to them throughout their lives,” Fisher said.
