Caritas Gifts

Caritas Gifts allow you to support Caritas’ work. When you buy a gift, making a donation on behalf of another, you help transform the lives of individuals, families and communities struggling to overcome poverty and injustice. 

Please have your order to Caritas by Friday 11 December to ensure you receive your gift card in time for use as a Christmas gift.

What are Caritas Gifts?

Caritas Gifts help support Caritas' life-changing work around the world. When you buy a gift, you will receive a beautifully illustrated card to give to your friend or loved one which explains how their gift will help transform the lives of people struggling to overcome poverty and injustice by supporting Caritas’ work for justice, peace and development.

The cost of the each Caritas Gift is added to one of four funds that deal with a specific area of our work, so you can choose how you want to make a difference.

The funds

Caritas Gifts are set out in four funds:

When you purchase a gift from one of these funds the money you spend supports that area of Caritas’ work.

For example, if you buy the gift of an Emergency kit from the Life Fund, the money you pay goes into that fund and is used to support emergency work where it is needed most.

Caritas Gifts are real examples of our work. If you buy or have received the gift of Pick a pig which is part of the Hope Fund, the money from your gift will be spent on development projects.
