Questions and Answers

How do I pledge a gift to the Catholic Services Appeal?

You may pledge your gift to the Catholic Services Appeal at any time at give.aodcsa.org. Please select your parish on the donation form, and then check the box on your pledge card indicating that you gave online.

You may also complete your pledge card and bring it to Mass with you beginning CSA Weekend, May 6-7.

Is a payment plan available?

Your pledge may be paid with an optional initial payment and then nine additional payments. Paying your pledge over several months allows you to give more generously and take into account other financial responsibilities. You may also select a quarterly payment plan.

Do I have to make a down payment?

A down payment is optional, but it does allow you to spread your CSA gift over 10 payments. So, for example, if you pledge $500, you could make a down payment of $50, and then complete your pledge with nine additional payments of $50.

May I make my CSA pledge payments electronically?

You may pledge your gift to the Catholic Services Appeal at give.aodcsa.org. Please select your parish on the donation form, and then check the box on your pledge card indicating that you gave online.

If you did not pledge your gift at give.aodcsa.org but would like to make your pledge payments electronically, please call (888) 331-8695.

Will I receive payment envelopes?

If you choose to make payments by check, the Archdiocese will send you pledge reminder envelopes, beginning in July. The reminder includes your pledge amount, amount paid, balance, and payment amount due.

I misplaced my envelope. Where can I send my CSA payment?

Please make your payment payable to “Catholic Services Appeal (CSA)” and send it to:

Catholic Services Appeal
P.O. Box 44077
Detroit, MI 48244-0077

Also, if you make your payment electronically through your bank, please be sure to use this address.

May I give stock to the Catholic Services Appeal?

You are welcome to give stock to the Catholic Services Appeal. Please contact Donor Services at (313) 237-5768, or stockdonations@aod.org.

Has my CSA Identification Number changed?

You now have a universal Family ID, regardless of the parish where you are registered or what parish you wish to receive credit for your CSA gift. Your Family ID does not have a prefix signifying your registered parish, as it is now identified in the general CSA information system.

Each campaign gift has a unique Pledge ID.  This Pledge ID identifies your parish and the specific campaign for your donation.  If you are giving to multiple parishes, please be sure to include the correct Pledge ID for that campaign and parish to ensure proper credit.

Can I make CSA gifts through more than one parish?

You are welcome to make a CSA gift to any parish you choose. You will receive one year-end tax statement in January, which will detail all of your CSA gifts.

Who can answer a question about my pledge or payments?
