Used by over 5,000 Catholic institutions, our development processes work!
The Institute of School and Parish Development (ISPD) is a national development consulting firm created in 1989 to serve Catholic schools, parishes and dioceses in the areas of planning, marketing, and resource development. For Catholic institutions to become financially secure and vibrant, they need to establish long-term development processes.  We teach and help implement proven processes that enable institutions to build a strong and solid base of people who become the spiritual, organizational and financial leaders of their Catholic institution.

ISPD Celebrates 25 Years of Catholic Development
This year, ISPD celebrates 25 years of helping Catholic institutions across the country achieve their development goals.  We owe our success and gratitude to the hundreds of schools, parishes and dioceses it has been our privilege to help by bringing people, process and ministry together. We look forward to the next 20 years and continuing our efforts to help Catholic institutions with what we call true “Catholic development” - the meaningful involvement of people in your mission and your vision for the future
