Resources for Compassionate Outreach
Resources for the Mission
Challenge: As parishes consider their communal response to the Diocesan Vision of Caring for our sisters and brothers in need, a lack of funds may deter them from completely exploring different ideas and options.
A Tool from Catholic Charities:
Parishes may contact and call the following individual at the Catholic Charities offices in Camden:
John Marcantuono, MSW
Office of Community Support
Catholic Charities, Diocese of Camden, Inc.
1845 Haddon Avenue
Camden, New Jersey 08103
Office: (856) 342 – 8786
Business Cell: (856) 366 – 3043
Mr. Marcantuono has over thirty years of experience in non-profit resource development, program development and strategic planning. He can help parishes consider how to apply for different sources of funds, for whatever form of compassionate outreach the parish may be considering. The Catholic Charities Office of Community Support can also help parishes shape their concept and funding applications, as well as help with the process of considering all factors and conditions (positive and negative) before submitting particular grant applications. The Office of Community Support can also help to strengthen and better structure grant applications and this will hopefully lead to a more favorable review of applications by funding sources.
