Catholic Campaign For Human Development
DescriptionThe Campaign, a program of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, was begun in 1970 to fund projects such as “voter registration, community organizations, community-run schools, minority-owned cooperatives and credit unions, capital for industrial development and job training programs and setting up of rural cooperatives.” The Campaign’s Community Organizing grants support projects where poor and marginalized people join together to seek solutions to local problems and find ways to improve their lives and neighborhoods. Organizations must demonstrate a change from traditional approaches to poverty by attacking the basic causes of poverty and by effecting institutional change. Eligible projects should directly benefit a poverty group who, in turn should have the dominant voice in the project. And organizations must satisfy a set of criteria and guidelines including having the project to be funded conform to the moral ands social teachings of the Catholic Church. Additional information including a pre-application eligibility quiz can be found on the Web site.
