Catholic Social Service is now Catholic Charities Community Services

Paul Martodam, chief executive officer of Catholic Social Service, is pleased to announce the nonprofit organization has changed its name to Catholic Charities Community Services, effective immediately. 

Founded in 1933, the organization was incorporated as Catholic Charities in 1970 when the Diocese of Phoenix was formed. Throughout its history, the organization has operated under several names and now has chosen to return to its roots and strengthen its association with the Catholic Charities USA network.  "The Catholic Charities network has been working to form a national identity for a number of years," Martodam said. "We believe this change helps build public awareness and better reflects our mission."


Participate in the eNonprofit Benchmarks Study

N-TEN is part of the steering committee for the eNonprofit Benchmarks Study that is being led by M+R Strategic Services. The eNonprofit Benchmarks Study is collecting and analyzing key online communications data from nonprofit organizations engaged in online activism, online fundraising, and email messaging. The study will measure email open rates, advocacy response rates, online fundraising conversion rates, paid email recruitment trends, and more. The study will establish nonprofit online communications performance benchmarks, giving nonprofits a tool for evaluating the effectiveness of their own online programs, and to compare it to those of similar organizations.

You can help our study! If you work for a nonprofit organization engaged in online activism, online fundraising, and email messaging, please take our confidential online survey sharing some of your organization’s online communications metrics:
(Only one survey response per organization, please.)

The survey includes questions relating to your organization’s budget and staffing, email open rates, response rates, web statistics, etc., and thus may require some research. Any data collected will remain confidential and will only be used in the aggregate. Your organization’s data will not be used individually.

The eNonprofit Benchmarks Study, to be released in early 2006, is sponsored by Advocacy Institute and M+R Strategic Services. It is co-sponsored by Beaconfire, Convio, Donor Digital, GetActive Software, and Kintera. The study also received generous support from the Beldon Fund and the Surdna Foundation. For more information about the eNonprofit Benchmarks Study, please contact Ben Smith at bensmith@mrss.com.
