Support the CIC’s mission!

Our nation’s capital is in constant and urgent need of the spiritual and intellectual light that the CIC offers. Supporting the CIC contributes to providing the sacraments and invaluable opportunities to form future lay leaders of the Church in the United States.

Should you have questions or need assistance with making a gift to the CIC, contact the Development office at or 202-783-2062 ext. 4.

Through Faith Direct you can make all of your contributions to CIC via automatic payment from your checking account or credit card – just as you may do now with your parish, mortgage, household bills, and other monthly payments. This is a great way to simplify your giving – and it’s the most cost-effective, environmentally-friendly way for us to receive your gifts.

In order for the CIC to help facilitate your gift and provide you with an IRS receipt, contact Angelica Tom at or 202-783-2062 ext. 4. Transferring securities to the Catholic Information Center allows you to make a gift and receive a charitable deduction equal to the full, fair market value of the securities. You will pay no capital gains on your gift and neither will the CIC.

Did you know you pay no estate taxes on contributions you make to the CIC through your will? A bequest to the CIC can be a gift of a specific dollar amount, publicly traded stocks or securities, or a percentage of your estate. The CIC can also be named as the beneficiary of assets which often pass outside of a will, such as IRAs, pension plans, or life insurance.

You can also name the CIC as a contingent beneficiary if someone named in your will is no longer living at the time of your passing. A bequest to the CIC is easy to arrange and can be made by including the following words in your will.

“I give, devise, and bequeath to the Catholic Information Center, 1501 K St, NW, Ste 175, Washington, DC 20005, (insert amount of money, publicly traded stocks or securities, or percentage of estate) to be used for its educational purposes.”
