I was pleasantly surprised to find that ours isn't bad. Nonetheless, I don't think the agencies funded by CHD are the best use of our money, and I will make a point of donating to the parish building fund instead!

That's what I was thinking myself, give directly to your individual church yourself. I also contribute to the Bishop's annual campaign since the money is kept in a separate account where lay people serve on a committee to make sure it goes to the charitable agencies the diocese runs.
