Who’s this event for?
We’ve designed this event for people who want to better understand the world of Catholic investing. More specifically, this event is for you if you’re…

  • someone who wishes to live your faith through philanthropy.
  • a pastor, parish business administrator, or trustee responsible for stewarding the gifts of your parishioners.
  • a professional advisor who wants to provide additional value to your charitable Catholic clients.


What will I learn?
You’ll gain perspective on the 2020 economic outlook. And, you’ll learn how CCF stewards more than $378 million charitable assets on behalf of its many donors to meet the needs of our local community.


Who should I bring?
Please invite your friends, colleagues, fellow board or committee members, your parish trustee, or your pastor. Anyone with an interest in the health and growth of our Catholic faith and community will find this event intriguing.
