I’m always in search of ideas from the saints on how to fundraise. This past Tuesday, we celebrated the memorial of Saint Robert Bellarmine – Doctor of the Church.

I read a great biography on his life and discovered three incredibly helpful ideas on how to fundraise — so I wanted to share them with you.

This week’s article is all about what to do when wealthy people don’t donate and how to steward people’s donations (even if the pope gives you a gift!)

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.
