How is the fundraising goal for each parish determined?

The annual goal for each parish is based on the average of its previous three-year offertory and Christmas collections. More details are in the table below. The parish goal is reduced by 10 percent if it operates an elementary school and reduced an additional 10 percent if it operates a high school. Parishes also may have their goal reduced if they provide tuition assistance to parishioners who attend Catholic schools. In those cases, their goal is reduced by 10 percent of the amount of financial aid they provide.
