NRVC gathers with Hilton grant recipients

Focus on strategy and collaboration

NRVC and NFCRV were part of this group of Hilton grant recipients who gathered in California in October. In the top row, third and fourth from the left, are Sister Kristin Matthes, S.N.D.deN. and Phil Loftus.

Sister Kristin Matthes, S.N.D.deN., NRVC Board chair, and Phil Loftus, who serves as both executive director of the National Fund for Catholic Religious Vocations (NFCRV) as well as NRVC development director, attended an October convening of Conrad N. Hilton Foundation Sisters' Initiative Grant recipients.

The gathering involved sharing the foundation's new Phase 2 Strategy for Hilton Foundation grantees. An extensive survey prior to the convening helped identify understandings and important focus areas. Over the three days together participants engaged around critical points including: key indicators of progress, lessons learned, monitoring, evaluation, and learning.  

The gathering also served as an opportunity for participants to collaborate with each other to help raise the profile of Catholic sisters, something NRVC has played a key role in doing. Hilton's next five-year strategic initiatives will focus on education, human development, knowledge, and innovation, all with the goal of increasing the global leadership of Catholic sisters.

Sister Kristin and Phil expressed confidence that NRVC can play a significant role in helping the Hilton Foundation achieve these ambitious new goals. They see the convening as an excellent opportunity for both NFCRV and NRVC to increase in awareness and continue to explain their missions.
