Archdiocesan Called to Serve as Christ Campaign:

What assurances...

What assurance can the Archdiocese of Seattle give to donors that no funds from the Called to Serve as Christ campaign will be used to pay future settlements in abuse cases? The campaign has been established as a separate Washington State non-profit corporation whose funds can only be used for the purposes designated in the campaign. The campaign corporation undergoes annual independent audits to assure it is conforming with all legal and ethical requirements. In addition, the priest Pension Plan is a qualified pension plan whose funds can only be used to pay pension benefits and whose statements are subject to an annual audit by an independent certified public accounting firm.

Though the official report may not reflect all campaign pledges returned to the archdiocese, our families at St. Francis of Assisi have currently raised $760,013 from 133 families. Thank you to all of you who have answered the challenge to participate in this historic campaign! If you would like more information or to donate online, please visit the campaign website at calledtoserveaschrist.org

Gift intentions made in good faith are not legally binding. Archbishop Sartain is encouraging all donors to consider stretching your gift over a three-year to maximize the total amount of your support. Your commitment can be fulfilled though by monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual installments.

If you wish, you can give to the campaign gifts of stock, real estate, life insurance and other planned gift opportunities. The archdiocese Stewardship and Development Office can assist you with making the necessary arrangements for such gifts. Contact campaign@seattlearch.org or 206-903-4620.
