A survey done by Share-Life, the R.C. Toronto Archdiocesan annual fund-raising campaign, shows that among its supporters awareness of the agencies it supports is low. Most supporters for example, thought that Share-Life financially supports the pro-life movement. It does not.
Share-Life was started in 1976 following the withdrawal of Catholic agencies from the United Way when the latter decided to include Planned Parenthood among its beneficiaries. It supports Catholic Charities, Third World projects and missionaries, the Archdiocesan seminary and Covenant House. It has no connection to the Right-to-Life movement.
