Catholic Diocese of Allentown

Mid-pandemic, leaders of the Catholic Diocese of Allentown launched a virtual event that would celebrate and bolster local parish communities while succeeding as an online fundraiser. They created a culinary competition—Cooks with Collars—to feature local priests, parishes, and Catholic Charities in the region and raised 16 times more than expected in online donations—over $160,000—as JustGiving from Blackbaud helped fuel the event. With online sponsorships, the total came to $225,000. Paul Acampora, Executive Director for Stewardship & Development, shares the recipe for success.
