Become a Founding member of the Divine Society 

Catholic Charities Jacksonville is excited to announce the founding of the Divine Society, an exclusive sustainer society formed to engage and celebrate our donors. 

 

Our hope is that the new Divine Society will provide opportunities to acknowledge our most involved contributors with exclusive sponsorship opportunities, cause-related marketing benefits, select events and gratitude gifts.

All those who join the Divine Society this year will be recognized as founding members – no matter the size of your commitment. Membership benefits also include:
 

  • Exclusive access to two Divine Society events during the course of the year to network and celebrate the group’s collective impact

  • A Divine Society welcome gift with Divine Society lapel pins and masks

We request that members allow us to apply donations where they are most urgently needed, but if a particular program has deeper meaning to you, you may certainly earmark your gift toward your program of choice.  

 

Please review the society membership levels below and reach out to Nicola Barnack, Director of Development, at 904.899.5505 or nbarnack@ccbjax.org to join today.
