Jim & NonaRae
Jim & NonaRae began the business and ministry of Totally Catholic Fundraising in 2005 after Jim retired from 16 years of full time parish youth ministry. Being a veteran youth minister, Jim knew there was really a need for a fundraiser that would be easy, risk-free, and TOTALLY CATHOLIC! Let's face it, most youth ministers are so busy with ministry that fundraising is just a headache and an extra "have-to-do". Jim & NonaRae decided to jump into the fundraising business and the rest is history!
It has been an amazing journey for Jim, he has been able to connect with youth ministers across the country and to provide a simple answer to fundraising for nearly 1,000 parishes and ministries nationwide! Many of those establishing a relationship and working with Jim and the staff of Totally Catholic Fundraising annually. NonaRae has supported Jim on the adventure, being involved in the business from attending events, to office work, to bagging jewelry for the fundraisers.
Jim and NonaRae have shared 40+ years of marriage, have 4 grown children, 12 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren! It has been a wild ride and they have loved, prayed, played, and lived through it. They praise God for being the center of their marriage and the foundation which all glory is given.
