Before the week starts, I spend a moment looking for which saint, pope, church document can help me become a better fundraiser.

Call it “monk mode.”

Basically, I hunker down and try to get my thinking straight, so I’m ready to be looking for donors and asking them for donations.

This week, I came across Saint Francis de Sales and his incredible book, Introduction to the Devout Life. (digital version / print version)

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.
