Catholic Charities’ Annual Leadership Breakfast Campaign

The first Leadership Breakfast held in 1980 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 single, largest source of private support for Catholic Charities’ mission and work through more than 80 programs across Maryland serving people of all faiths. This year, our goal is to raise $5 million dollars.

Previous Leadership Breakfast events

At the 2017 Leadership Breakfast celebration on December 7, 2017,  we were fortunate to hear from former Catholic Charities’ client, Kianna, who shared her remarkable story with our guests. A former guest at Sarah’s House, her achievements are a testament to her determination for a better life for her family and to the work and compassion of our colleagues.
