Results in Catholic parishes and organizationsCentral to our understanding of stewardship and development is the concept of accountability. Dioceses, parishes, schools, and other church-related organizations that seek to develop urgently needed human and financial resources need to show that their programs and services truly make a difference in meeting the spiritual, educational, and social needs of the people they serve.

They also need to give evidence of their long-term stability and growth potential to encourage investment. This is a basic requirement of stewardship and developmentto render an account of the organizations use of the time, talent, and treasure entrusted to its care. As the demand for charitable giving grows (and competition increases), accountability will become an even more important indicator of whether an organization is worthy of investment.
