The Diocesan Development Fund (DDF) was established by the late Bishop Noel Daly in July 1980 and supports the work of the Catholic Church. The DDF does so by providing financial services to meet the borrowing needs of parishes, schools and agencies of the Catholic Diocese of Sandhurst so they can realise their vision for the benefit of the Catholic community.
Since its establishment, the DDF has helped fund significant capital works across the Catholic Diocese of Sandhurst largely due to the commitment and support of our Catholic community. The DDF is the central treasury of the Catholic Diocese of Sandhurst and custodian of funds held on behalf our clients. The DDF is part of a broader network of other Catholic Development Funds which services the Catholic and wider communities across Australia and New Zealand.
The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference has established a company known as CDPF Limited which has been approved by ASIC as a sponsor body for the purposes of providing exemption from the various provisions of the Corporations Act that would otherwise apply to church bodies. The Fund is an unincorporated entity. The Fund holds an Australian Business Number (ABN) and is registered for GST.
