You likely read a lot of books and articles about what the Church teaches, but have you ever read this vital document?
The Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church (softcover and digital copies available here)
Published in 2004 by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace at the request of John Paul II, this document presents a “complete overview of the fundamental framework of the doctrinal corpus of Catholic social teaching.”
I have scrubbed the document from cover to cover, and I found some helpful suggestions for… you guessed it! … Catholic Fundraisers.
With so much going on this summer, I thought these insights for the Pontifical Council will help you focus on finding more donors.

I have an interesting question for you…
“Did Vatican II offer ideas on how to fundraise?”
The short answer is, yes. The Council Father’s wrote an excellent document titled, APOSTOLICAM ACTUOSITATEM.

– the role of funds in your mission
– how God’s plan links with your funding plan
– how to achieve “maximum effectiveness” with fundraising
Yep, once again, our rich Catholic heritage offers you and me everything we need to be successful fundraisers.
