CSA

Pledging a Gift

Lea en Español


The Catholic Services Appeal is a pledge program. While cash gifts are accepted and welcomed, pledging a gift will allow you to make a more generous — and affordable — contribution to the Catholic Services Appeal, since you can spread out your gift over several months.

If you desire, you may make an initial payment when you fill out your pledge card, then pay the remaining balance with nine additional monthly payments, either electronically or by mail.

Electronic giving helps the Archdiocese of Detroit answer our Holy Father’s call in Laudato Si to care for “our common home.” Online payments allow the CSA Office to save on postage as well as an incredible amount of paper, because they eliminate the need for monthly mailings. With thousands of generous donors contributing to the CSA each year, this is a considerable environmental savings, and is more efficient as well.

You may also pay your pledge electronically without using the online giving portal. Simply indicate on your pledge card that you prefer payments, after the optional initial payment, be withdrawn from your bank account or charged to a credit card.
