Catholic Book and Film Fair -- Build Your Own Fair!
 

The Catholic Book and Film Fair

Combining Fun, Faith, and Funds

Ignatius Press, one of the world's leading Catholic publishers and distributors of quality Catholic products, is pleased to offer this incredible faith-raising and fundraising opportunity to parishes, schools, youth groups, and other Catholic organizations. By partnering with Ignatius Press, you can help others grow in their Catholic faith while raising money for your special projects by offering some of our best-selling products right in your own church or school.

Here’s How It Works:

Ignatius Press will collaborate with you to set up the best program for your school, parish or organization. We have provided a list of recommended products you can choose from to "Build Your Own" Fair! If you know of other Ignatius Press products you would like to offer at your Fair that you have seen in our catalogs or at the www.ignatius.com website, you can add those as well after reaching the required minimum with the recommended products. Remember, any discounted prices you see in the catalogs or on the www.ignatius.com website do not apply to the Fair. Your discounts are based on retail prices and you will also receive free shipping on all products sent to you. Also keep in mind the special exceptions, noted below, regarding our Religious Education materials.

To view the list of products in categories, please see the Category Product List. To select products and quantities to have at your Fair, please use the Initial Order Product List. For an alphabetical list of products with retail prices that can be printed for volunteers to use at the Fair, please see Working Product List.

We offer several options from which you may choose to "Build Your Own" Fair:
