Affiliate Member

Affiliate Membership in Catholic Charities USA affords bishops and other leaders of Catholic organizations access to materials and trainings in Catholic Identity and Code of Ethics to assist them in their responsibility to align their organizational culture and services with the principles of Catholic Social Teaching and Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Letter issued motu proprio “On the Service of Charity.”

An “Affiliate Member” is a Roman Catholic religious congregation, housing, educational, or social welfare agency or institution, or group other than a diocesan Catholic Charities agency which pays dues directly to Catholic Charities USA and which contributes to the achievement of the social mission of the Church and adheres to the purposes of Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA Bylaws).

Affiliate Member agencies are eligible to share in all basic member benefits.  

Membership dues for Affiliate Members are assessed on a sliding scale based on the number of full time equivalent employees (FTEs).

  • 1-20 FTEs   $100/year

  • 21-50 FTEs $500/year

  • 51+ FTEs    $1,000/year
