College debt is an obstacle to vocations.

You can help.

Who we are


The NFCRV was established by the National Religious Vocation Conference in 2014, through an initial grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and additional funding from the GHR Foundation, to assist NRVC member religious communities in welcoming candidates with educational debt.
