Things You May Want to Know
Do I Have to Choose a Fundraising Category?
Sorry, you can’t politely decline. Choosing a category helps us present your project to potential supporters in a meaningful way. Community building and advocacy projects (think church-building and anti-trafficking campaigns), fall under the category “Faith and Empowerment,” education initiatives for children and adults should be categorized under “Hope and Education.” Lastly, “Love and Service” covers programs directed at healthcare and nutrition.
Who or What is Missio?
Missio is powered by The Pontifical Mission Societies which are under the direct canonical jurisdiction of the Pope. Missio offers of the same features as big name crowdfunding sites and a lot more. Missio is transparent, secure and most importantly, we have more than 100 years’ experience helping some of the most vulnerable communities around the world.
Who is the Project Leader?
The project leader is the person in the missions responsible for making sure the work gets done. Project leaders are part of the Missio community and share updates, photos and good wishes with project supporters. Keep in mind, though, that project leaders live in the Missions. In other words, next time you complain that your 4G is slow, remember most project leaders have 0G.
How Does My Project Receive Funds?
Once a project meets its funding goal, the funds are made available as soon as they can be transferred through the Church’s existing network by utilizing the services of the Vatican’s Diplomatic Mission in a given country. We can get funds just about anywhere in Africa, Asia, Oceania, Latin America and Europe in the local currency.
How Do I Spread the Word?
Missio provides a number of tools to help you communicate with friends and family about your project. Once you become a member of the Missio community and start fundraising, you will have access to a My Missio dashboard which allows you to send emails and post updates.

Do I Have to Name a Parish or School?
Nope. This step is completely optional. However, if you do decide to name a parish, school or both, know that you are not committing these organizations to give money – you are simply expanding the community of people who might be interested in learning more about your fundraiser.
Can I name any parish or school?
Absolutely! Thanks to social media, you may have re-connected with a lot of old friends and teachers from your Catholic elementary school (like that weird boy that always sat in the back of the class). Why not let them know you’ve become a member of the Missio community and share your project with them? Perhaps you would like to add the parish where you serve as a choir member or the parish where you attend Mass regularly… the choice is yours.
