Interview with new president of Catholic Relief Services

Catholic World News - March 08, 2012

In a brief interview with Forbes, Carolyn Woo, the new president of Catholic Relief Services, discussed the future of the agency.

Asked to discuss her top priorities, Woo, who until recent served as dean of the University of Notre Dame’s business school, said:

Obviously this is going to be a challenging time for our funding. Two-thirds of it comes from public sources, mainly through grants that we win from the US government, and we all know about the budgetary pressures there. So we need to diversify our funding as much as possible.

And one way to do that is to get the word out about CRS. Many have said we are “the best kept secret” of the Catholic Church. They mean that as a compliment but it’s something we’d like to correct.
