  • National Voluntary Funds constitute monies forwarded by councils through national office for disbursement annually to the appropriate agencies, Parish Councils complete the National Voluntary Fund Remittance Form indicating which funds they wish to support, and forward it to national office with a cheque made out to The Catholic Women's League of Canada. A copy of this form is to be sent to the diocesan treasurer for her information.
    • Permanent Voluntary Funds: these agencies are permanently assisted by donations received from members and councils of the Catholic Women's League of Canada.
      • Coady International Institute of St. Francis Xavier University, Antigonish, Nova Scotia was founded by Dr Moses Coady who gave leadership to the Antigonish Movement which promotes the ideal that by learning and working together, men and women become "masters of their own destinies".  Coady offers a six-month diploma program designed for leaders engaged in the development of people-based organizations in developing countries. The students, ranging in age from 25 to 45, are persons employed with public and private sector organizations engaged in human and international development. All students sign a commitment to return to their country of origin upon completion of the program, and are required to undertake a Diploma Study Project that relates the student's work at home to Coady's formal training.
      • Canadian Catholic Organization for Development & Peace (CCODP) established in 1967 is Canada's official Catholic overseas development organization launched by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops.

CCODP's primary source of funds is the yearly "Share-Lent" campaign, Canadian International Development Agency and donations from individuals and groups.
