An investment is a vehicle designed to put your money to work for you. But what if that money could be doing a bit of God’s work at the same time?
With the Catholic Development Fund that’s just what happens. While your money is earning interest very close to the market rate, a small fraction of your return helps the Bishop to run programmes in your parish and throughout the Bunbury Diocese. Make the CDF an Integral Part of Your Portfolio and Support our Catholic Community while you provide for your future
Why choose the Catholic Development Fund?
The CDF provides funding for our Diocese from a few of the percentage points of interest earned by each investment.
The resulting funds are the major source of income for the ongoing work of the Church in the Bunbury Diocese, both in social services and liturgical activities. For example, programmes for Catholic Education and youth development, Adult Faith Education and catechist training, programmes that offer Spiritual direction and healing, as well as those that support pregnant women, are all funded by investors in the CDF.
The money you have in the CDF makes a real difference to people in the local community and to the work of the Church in our Diocese.
The Catholic Diocese of Bunbury gives you peace of mind by providing an indemnity against loss on your investments with the CDF including any interest payable.
NO account fees or charges
