The Catholic Development Council is a faith-based community within The Nonprofit Alliance that offers opportunities to network, learn, share and partner with like-minded organizations, and engage in issues that impact our fundraising ministries.

Stay Connected through The Nonprofit Alliance!

As of June 2019, the National Catholic Development Conference (NCDC) ceased operations, after fifty years as the voice of the Catholic fundraising community.  Our shared mission and community are reemerging as the Catholic Development Council, part of the larger umbrella organization, The Nonprofit Alliance (TNPA).

Within TNPA, we have an opportunity to continue our engagement with other faith-based fundraising organizations while impacting the larger nonprofit community with our vision, vitality, and leadership.

We hope you will Stay Connected and join your colleagues in this new path forward.  TNPA offers opportunities to network, learn, share and partner with like-minded organizations that are fueled by the common mission of Jesus, and to engage in issues that impact our fundraising ministries.

Unleash the Power of a Mission
and the Courage to Lead It

Challenging times can cause us, sometimes, to question our passion for ministry and our ability to lead. We can feel confused about God’s calling on our lives. In our time together we will bring out passion for ministry, renew the calling, and see how to lead others away from their lack of direction and destructive “busyness.”  We recently welcomed Randy Bronkema, Senior Development Consultant with DickersonBakker, to share his renewing words of courage and faith.

This webinar is part of our monthly Catholic Development Council series.  See our Events page for upcoming programming.

Do you have great content and expertise that you can share in a webinar for your fellow Catholic Development Council members and the faith fundraising community?  Submit a webinar proposal to be considered for our monthly CDC webinar series.
