We partner with faith-based investors to reimagine an investment practice anchored in Catholic Social Teaching.
Inspired by Pope Francis’ Economy of Francesco movement, the Francesco Collaborative gathers Catholic investors and close associates to explore practices of “faith-first investing” that nurture economic futures rooted in solidarity and embody the prophetic edge of Catholic investing.
Workshops and Formation
Deepening our faith and value commitments is essential to the work of transforming our economic and financial systems. Our flagship program, the Livable Future Investing workshop, gathers asset stewards and faith-based actors from around the world to pray, write, reflect, and collaborative discern our “most important work.” We’ve since accompanied 150+ workshop alumni on their journey to become protagonists of transformation.
Adopting a practice of faith-first, values-aligned investing is hard work. With the help of a generous network of faith-based asset stewards and leaders in the field of Catholic investing, we accompany organizations as they work to take up a new course of action – whether it’s revising an investment policy statement or making a first impact investment.
Community and Movement Building
We cannot do the work of transforming our economic and financial systems alone. Our team is committed to mobilizing the individuals and organizations willing to unfold this work over the long-term. We aim to build trusted, sustainable relationships rooted in a vision that goes beyond any one organization or agenda. We currently collaborate with FADICA, FaithInvest, and others on initiatives related to faith and mission-driven investing.
