Make a Gift

Making a gift to Changing Lives Together begins with prayerful reflection on committing to a three-year pledge to your parish and your Catholic brothers and sisters throughout the Archdiocese of Detroit.

Fulfilling your pledge over three years will enable you to make a larger gift spread over a longer period of time. You can fulfill your commitment on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis.

You can initiate your gift through your parish office and manage your gift online.
