with the CDF

The CDF exists to help the Church achieve its mission by providing funding and loans for activities that strengthen the Catholic Diocese of Christchurch.

CDF members choose from a range of investment and savings products to suit their saving and lifestyle needs.  All accounts are 100% guaranteed and provide a return to both CDF members and the Bishop of Christchurch.  Borrowing needs are also available to Catholic schools, parishes, and organisations to carry out projects.

The CDF offers a socially responsible investment option with an investment policy aligned to Catholic values.  It remains a practical way to save while investing in the good of the diocese – particularly for our youth, those in education and in need of care and support.
