    All the major religions in the world promote charity and good deeds; in this article we take a look at two Catholic philanthropists who help people in need. Both these billionaires are part of the Giving Pledge which was started by Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, this non profit organization stipulates that any member who joins must give away more than half of their wealth to help people in need. The two Catholic philanthropists who are really taking things to the next level are Tom Monaghan and Barron Hilton.

    Background of Catholic Philanthropists

    Tom Monaghan – Domino Pizza Founder

    Tom Monaghan is the founder and CEO of Domino’s Pizza, he has an estimated net worth of $500 million of which he has already pledged $451 million to help people in need. Monaghan really believes in helping people in need and explains that he came into this world as a penniless Catholic and will leave this world as a penniless Catholic, he goes on to remark that the only thing that really matters is making a difference to someone else’s life. Tom spent most of his childhood in a Catholic orphanage, he was raised by the Felician Sisters and from an early age he really wanted to help the foundation which had helped him so much.

    Barron Hilton – Hilton Hotel Heir

    Barron Hilton is the heir to the Hilton Hotel fortune, the first Hotel was created by Conrad Hilton and since then the chain of hotels has grown to be the most recognized and profitable hotels the world has to offer. Barron Hilton has an estimated net worth of $22 Billion of which he has pledged to give away $17 billion. Most of the money has been pledged to help Catholic children throughout the world. On his letter to the Giving Pledge Barron Hilton explains that he wants to spend the money where it’s needed most and will have the biggest impact, this includes water development, homelessness, children, substance abuse Catholic Sisters.

    Contacting Catholic Philanthropists for Help

    There is no law that prevents you from asking Catholic millionaires for help, if you’re looking to raise some money or need financial assistance yourself then you can turn to these billionaires for help. Both of these religious millionaires have their own charitable foundation and you can contact them and ask them for money which will go to a good cause.

    If you’re experiencing a hardship which includes help with medical fees, education fees, homelessness, poverty or disaster recovery then there is a good chance that you might get assistance. One of the most important steps you can take is to visit the website for the charitable foundation and check to see what programs are on offer and how you can apply for them.


    Sample Letters to Catholic Givers

    You might need to write a hardship letter to the charitable foundation asking for help. If this is the case then you need to write a letter which really explains your circumstances in details and outline the hardship that you are facing and how you intend to help yourself. You need to outline which programs you are interested in and how it would make a tremendous difference to your lives. You should end the letter by thanking them for any assistance they can offer.

    It’s important that you take your time writing your hardship letter, you should write several drafts in an attempt to perfect the hardship letter until you left with something that reflects your circumstances accurately.


    Contact Details of Catholic Philanthropists

    I have included the contact details of the charitable foundation that Tom Monaghan and Barron Hilton are in charge of. If you’re planning on contacting these millionaires for help then you should take the time to visit their website to see if they have anything to offer that might help you. You should also be aware that these requests could take up to eight weeks to process and patience is the key when asking billionaires for help.

    Catholic Philanthropists Who Help People in Need

    Both these foundations offer valuable resources to help people in need, if you really believe that you have a genuine hardship then it makes sense to contact these non profit organizations for help. If however you feel that you’ve got what it takes to help yourself out of poverty and hardship then by helping yourself you allow these non profit organizations to help other people who might need financial assistance even more.

  4. Hi my name is Jackie. I am 35. No kids of my own. I am an Irish Catholic who comes from a family of 5 siblings. We lost our Mom 10 years ago, when she was only 47. My lil brother was 9 & my lil sis was 12 at the time. This is going to be the first time in 10 years that all us siblings & their children will be in the same room together. If you could help financially so we can have gifts & a Christmas tree & food to cook, it would mean alot. We arent fortunate in the finance department but we did get by. Please help to make this special.

    My daughter is a devout Catholic and currently displaced from her boy. She needs help but refuses to ask. She's 1000 miles from home and her son because while doing a job in OKC she fell ill. Very ill and every surgery is supposed to be final but never is. She was just recently injured in pedestrian accident.....this cost her everything. I need help getting this link out for my daughter. She said she couldn't go another Christmas without her son and needs to get home but that's isn't the only thing....she's been thru so much, so young and very successful until recently this has cost her happiness and job.
    This is link to only a glimps of my baby girls story and we've spent everything we had. She's so strong and has always given to others herself....particularly teenagers in need of inspiration outside their circumstances.
    Thank everyone who can get our word and link out.
    Bless you all!
