Diocese partners with Givelify app

JACKSON – Donors can now give to the Diocese of Jackson through an app on their tablet or phone. Givelify is available on the Apple and Google Play download centers. Users create their own secure account and can then donate in a few taps. The diocese will take care of tax documentation.
The Office of Stewardship and Development decided to use the Seminarian Education Challenge for the launch of Givelify for the diocese. Other organizations will be added later. The Seminarian Education Challenge is an effort to raise $100,000 in one year to help pay for tuition for diocesan seminarians. “This app is a very cost effective option for the diocese and will let people give from wherever they are,” explained Rebecca Harris, director of Stewardship and Development for the diocese. “We are always looking for ways to make it easy for people to support the causes that mean a lot to them. Online and mobile giving are great ways to get people involved,” she added.
To download the app, search for Givelify in the application store on a device. The download is free. Once you have the app, open it and search for Catholic Diocese of Jackson and look for a photo of Bishop Joseph Kopacz with the seminarians.
