Catholic Charities prefers that bequests be made for its unrestricted general purposes.
If you wish to name one of our programs, such as Our Daily Bread, please use this link http://www.catholiccharities-md.org/services/ to verify the correct name and address of the program. Keep in mind that, as the needs of the poor, homeless and disadvantaged in our community change, so do our programs. Talk with your attorney about using language in your will that will ensure that your philanthropic objectives are met, even if the specific program you name is no longer in existence.
