Webinar: Financial Transparency for Catholic Schools
On May 13, 2021 we hosted a webinar on Financial Transparency for Catholic Schools, thus concluding the series on Building a Transparent & Accountable Church, with a look at Catholic schools.
In fact, like dioceses and parishes, Catholic schools face multiple challenges. They exist in a wide range of juridical constructs with varied funding. Many are subject to existing guidelines as non-profits/NGOs. This webinar looks at some of the main challenges faced by Catholic schools in different parts of the world and recommends principles for best practices.
