"God loves a cheerful giver" (2 Corinthians 9:7).
All followers of Jesus Christ are called to give thanks to God for our gifts and talents, and to pass on that generosity to others

The lifestyle of Christian stewardship involves intentional, planned, and proportionate giving of our time, talent, and treasure. There are many options when it comes to giving. With thoughtful giving you may plan for your future while having a positive impact on the mission of the Catholic Church in Central Colorado. Below are some resources you may need in your planning.

The Diocese of Colorado Springs is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code. All gifts (cash and check) intended for year-end giving must be received by the Diocese of Colorado Springs or postmarked by December 31. Gifts received after this date will receive the following year tax credit.


Donations may be mailed to the Diocese of Colorado Springs at 228 N. Cascade Avenue, Colorado Springs, CO 80903. Please make your check payable to Diocese of Colorado Springs.
