Invest in Good

with the CDF

The CDF exists to help the Church achieve its mission by providing for activities to strengthen the Catholic Diocese of Christchurch

CDF members choose from various interest-earning investment and savings products to suit their saving and lifestyle needs.

With no shareholders to satisfy, any surplus generated is made available for the Bishop of Christchurch to use in helping those in education or in need of care and support.

Upon request, Catholic schools, parishes, and organisations may apply to borrow from the CDF to help carry out their own projects’ needs.

The CDF offers a socially responsible investment option with an investment policy aligned with Catholic values.  It remains a practical way to save while investing in the good of community.
