Simple, secure, and transparent donations and remittance

The Cathio platform provides Catholic organizations with the tools to fundraise online and connect with both local parishioners and the global Catholic community.

A Platform Built for Donations

The Cathio app blends seamless payments with varied donations options. Users can easily find their church and donate with the click of the button.

Cathio also offers options for both recurring and targeted donations. By allowing donors to set up automatic payments and choose what their donation will be used for, Cathio aims to bring about a new era of online Church engagement and allow the Church to do more good.

Connecting Good People with Good Works

Cathio makes it easy for users to connect with their local church with an online map showing local churches or with a text search by location and church name.

Dioceses and parishes can customize their own Cathio pages, adding information like Mass times, fundraisers, and ways to get involved.

Reports

Cathio provides administrators with easy access to advanced reporting tools, generating a variety of useful financial and analytic reports for dioceses, parishes, and charities.
