ShareLife Announces 2017 Results

Our 2017 campaign theme of “Living the Gospel by providing for those in need” reflected our role as Catholics to bring the hands of Christ to our brothers and sisters.

The faithful of the Archdiocese of Toronto heeded that call generously with a record ShareLife parish campaign. Together we raised $12,690,597 – an increase of over $620,000 or 5.2% from the 2016 result. We are immensely grateful for the commitment of parishioners to the work of ShareLife agencies.

Overall, the ShareLife campaign raised $14,084,825, an increase of $737,492 over the previous year. The results of our campaigns are as follows:

  2017 2016
 Parish Campaign $12,690,597 $12,065,419
 Corporate Campaign $899,449 $838,870
 Employee Campaign $206,431 $217,231
 School Employee Campaigns
 $125,347 $141,825
 Community Campaigns
 $163,001 $87,125

However, it is important to note that while we have increased our revenue, the ShareLife campaign will finish with a shortfall of approximately $800,000 when allocations and expenses are taken into account. Over the past two years, ShareLife has allocated over $1.2 million new dollars towards the work of our agencies. Since we did not achieve our campaign goal in 2016 and 2017, ShareLife has drawn over $1.8 million from our unrestricted net assets to cover these shortfalls.

As we complete the 2017 campaign, we are grateful for the response of our parish communities. We give special thanks to our clergy, whose strong support is critical to the overall success of our campaign. Likewise, we applaud the members of ShareLife committees, whose tireless dedication helped achieve this year's record results. We also thank the speakers from our agencies, who gave time on their weekends to passionately share the message of ShareLife.

Together, we have truly “Lived the Gospel by providing for those in need.” Thank you for all that you are doing for ShareLife.
