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.

Brice was born and raised Catholic. After enjoying a successful career in technology consulting with Accenture and PriceWaterhouseCoopers in cities across the United States (Dallas, San Francisco, Paris, Abu Dhabi, and London) around the world, he left it to help his Catholic diocese in London, England with a fundraising campaign. The campaign went on to raise over $60 million, the largest sum ever raised for the diocese and in the United Kingdom.

Learning from professional fundraisers, he figured out the basics and then left the diocese to focus on what he loves most: building Catholic charities that change the culture, save lives, and save souls.

Brice currently lives in Texas and travels the world helping Catholics fundraise. This website is where he shares what he is doing and how he is raising funds for Catholic causes and missions. That way you can move more quickly with your next appeal.
