10 Prolife Charities Worthy of Support

We all know that Christmas time is a popular time for giving money to our favorite organizations. Right before the year’s end is usually someone’s last chance to donate in order to get his or her tax break. If this is you and you are looking for organizations, I’ve got some great suggestions. ๐Ÿ™‚ All of these suggestions are for organizations either directly or indirectly support life in all its stages.

Also, don’t forget to donate during other times of the year, too. These and all charitable organizations need help year round!

*A reader, in the comments, expressed her negative experience with Priest for Life so I looked up their charity rating: http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=6438#.VfwLuJcer-s. My experience with them have always been positive, but use your own discretion in deciding to support this group or not.

  1. Thanks for sharing. I hadn’t heard of most of these charities before.

  2. These cites will help me with my project of educating the school about the Pro-Life movement through our Students for Life club’s monthly bulletin board. Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚
    Two of my favorite Pro-Life charities: Mary’s Shelter and Project Ultrasound

      I’m so glad you have found the list useful, Jessica!

      I’ve never heard of Mary’s shelter but Project Ultrasound is another great one. Thanks!

  3. The Elliot Institute is called a “small but mighty” ministry that conducts research, education and outreach regarding abortion’s impact. Research research shows most abortions are unwanted or coerced. (See our free “Forced Abortion in America” flyers, reports, too.) After abortion, women are dying, too. 65% suffer trauma. Our research is used to hold abortion-providers accountable, change laws and educate public while showing compassion for those at risk or hurt. In great need of supporters and prayers.

  4. Came across your very helpful website. I was wondering if I could link my website with yours. Please check out my Pennies for Heaven project on my website which is a pro-life activity for those that can’t attend the March For Life. http://www.allkidscanbesaved.com/

    • SimpleCatholic says:

      Sure, Stella, thank you. You have a lovely site. However, the link to the pennies for Heaven project doesn’t work so I changed the link to your home page.

  5. Barb Freeman says:

    Please reevaluate your support for Priests for Life. I have given them contributions and they send me more and more threatening solicitations. They mark them like they are overdue bills, send me dollar bills and generally harass me since I donated to them. I looked up their rating as a charity and it is only one out of four stars and not much of the money actually gets to the cause. At least two bishops have tried to get them to be more accountable for where the money is going and they will not cooperate. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO A PRO-LIFE GROUP WITH A GOOD RATING. This organization takes in over $10,000,000 dollars a year and is not accountable to anyone for how it is spent. They have wasted hundreds of dollars harassing me to send them more money. I will do anything to stop end abortion but will not be harassed and tricked into giving money to this sham of a charity!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They should be shut down.

    • SimpleCatholic says:

      Wow, they have never done that to me before. I am sorry you had a bad experience with the Priest of Life. Has this happened to anyone else? I will look into their rating. Thanks for sharing.

      • I have heard on EWTN some favorable comments about Priests for Life, so I trusted that they were a valuable charity. However, I, too, have many solicitations from them–almost to the point of harassment, but I was willing to put up with that, until I checked in Chariy Navigator and found their rating and how much is paid to administration! I wish that I could get more information, in case there is a good reason for these things. I want to support those who need help in the Supreme Court case.

  6. I would never recommend Focus on the Family (and James Dobson) since I have heard him utter a number of anti-Catholic statements on his radio program. Rosy G

  7. Fr. Pavone does wonderful work, but like any organization, they need money. I agree that sending a dollar to encourage you to give is a bit much. It lays a guilt trip on some. I just put the dollar in the basket. Little Sisters get my vote. Such Holy women!
