Since 2013, disbursement of all Because We Are Catholic Annual Appeal (formerly known as the Bishop’s Annual Appeal) contributions has been monitored by the Because We Are Catholic Appeal Board of Trust Advisors, a 12-member board of volunteer community leaders and parishioners from around the Diocese of Allentown.
MISSION OF THE BISHOP’S ANNUAL APPEAL
The mission of the Because We Are Catholic Appeal is to strive to meet the Catholic social and ministerial needs of the people in the Diocese of Allentown.
MISSION OF THE TRUST ADVISORS

- The Trust Advisors will review gifts received and assure the proper allocation of gifts to the various specified and restricted uses and purposes of the Trust.
- The Trust Advisors will assist the Bishop, Diocesan staff and the Deanery Chairpersons with fundraising for the Appeal.
