Charity of the year or term

A great way to support CAFOD is to make us your charity of the year! Take a look at these simple ways to get involved all year round.

Why choose CAFOD?

Poverty is not part of God’s plan. We work in more than 40 countries seeking local solutions to end poverty and injustice. But none of our work is possible without you, so join us today and put your faith into action.


How do we spend your money?

Out of every £1 we spend, 80p goes on vital emergency relief and development work in the world’s poorest communities. 9p in the pound was used for education, advocacy and campaigning work, to tackle the injustice that keeps people in poverty. 11p in every pound was invested to generate future income. The amount we spend on generating funds is one of the lowest compared to other charities.
