WHO WE ARE

NCDC assists Catholic organizations in the ministry of philanthropy by empowering members to promote our common gospel mission, inspire our communities and better our world.

The National Catholic Development Conference is a community for those who have been called to the ministry of fundraising. Our ministry is first and foremost about relationships. It is about being of one heart and one mind. It is our relationship to God, to the mission of Jesus and to all our brothers and sisters. It is an invitation to be and build communities of faith, hope and love. Jesus taught us that we cannot do it alone, all of us need communities of acceptance and support and place to find our common voice.

We are the United States’ largest membership association of charitable religious fundraisers. Our nonprofit membership consists of religious communities of men and women, shrines, social service agencies, schools, parishes, dioceses, seminaries and international relief agencies. Corporate partnership is available to businesses wishing to promote the interests and purposes of the Conference.
