Pledge to Our Partners

Code of Stewardship and Ethics of the Membership of the National Catholic Development Conference.

We, as members of the National Catholic Development Conference, respond to Christ’s invitation to build the kingdom. We hold sacred the trust established between the donors and the mission they choose to support.

Inspired by the Gospel call to stewardship, we serve the Church by respecting the hallowed ground on which donors and the mission meet. As trustees of what literally belongs to God, we strive for the highest ethical standards.

As disciples called to serve all of God’s people, we are accountable and responsible to religious authority, to donors and to the mission. We believe, above all else, that the Gospel Values of human dignity and worth need generous space to flourish and grow.

Therefore, as members of the National Catholic Development Conference, we pledge to embrace these precepts and values. We promise:

  • Fidelity
  • Integrity
  • Loyalty
  • Trustworthiness and Respect Loyalty to Donors
  • Respect for Authority Honesty
  • Fairness and Truthfulness
  • Accountability
  • Transparency
