    Is Facebook Censoring Catholic Non-Profits?

    Is Facebook Censoring Catholic Non-Profits?

    You may have heard that Facebook stopped allowing ads to target groups based on religious interests.

    In practical terms, Catholic apostolates could previously tell Facebook to show their ads to anyone who liked topics such as Our Lady, the Rosary, the Divine Liturgy, and the Pope.

    Now, it's not allowed to ask Facebook to show ads to people based on their religious interests.

    Is Facebook censoring Catholics?

    What does this mean for your apostolate?

    I outline what has changed, how to use Facebook still, or if you should abandon the platform.

    Here is what you should know regarding Facebook's changes to Catholic interests:

    Waste of Time to Fundraise with Volunteers?

    You've likely considered using volunteers to help you fundraise.

    It seems logical to use the "divide and conquer" strategy, right?

    When you fundraise with volunteers, I recommend you listen to Kenny Rogers' advice:

    You got to know when to hold 'em,
    Know when to fold 'em,
    Know when to walk away,
    And know when to run.

    I receive many inquiries about fundraising for a Catholic school.

    Sometimes the questions come from a network of homeschooling parents who want to launch an actual "bricks and mortar" school.

    Sometimes the leadership team of a longstanding school with hundreds of students has questions about expanding their enrollment.

    Whatever the case may be, there are certain fundamentals that you never want to forget. Here is what I think they are:

Motivating and helpful!

Bryce is upbeat and authentic, extracting to-the-point fundraising lessons from leaders of all times. I encourage all lay and religious organizational decision makers— not just fundraising and development types!—to invest a few minutes a week absorbing his fresh approach. These podcasts are NOT slickly produced, but they’ve improved over time— and I did say AUTHENTIC, right?!!
