  • a professional advisor who wants to provide additional value to your philanthropic Catholic clients.

What will I learn?
You’ll gain perspective on the 2023 economic outlook. And you’ll learn how CCF stewards more than $507 million of charitable assets on behalf of its many donors to meet the needs of our local community.
