“Is CCHD funded by Catholic Charities?”
I would also like to know the answer to this question.
Is there any relationship between these two entities with “Catholic” in their names?
I’m pretty sure the answer is no. CCHD is funded by a special collection once a year. I think the intention is something like helping a food co-op that served the poor and also employed them.
There are often good objectives but after it gets past a few committees it often goes to pet projects and often does little good.
It is like our tax money, we know how we’d like it spent or not spent but the politicians spend it any way they want to. Don’t give to any of the 2nd collections that are apportioned by committees, only give to Peter’s Pence and the Holy Land which have specific targets. Use your charity to help those around you, don’t let it keep you from being charitable but allow it to make you wise in your giving.
