Donors to Catholic schools demanding accountability
CWN - February 07, 2011
Major donors to Catholic schools are now demanding a higher level of financial transparency and academic accountability, The New York Times reports.
“The relationship between the Church and its contributors used to be basically, ‘Pray, pay and obey — give us money, we’ll take it from there,’ ” said Francis Butler, president of Foundations and Donors Interested in Catholic Activities (FADICA). “But donors are much more proactive today. They are concerned about the quality of the schools, the leadership; they’re drilling down into these problems.”
