Saturday 6th March marked the launch of www.catholicvalues.co.uk – a price comparison website with a difference. The difference being that all profits net of running costs made through the website are to be donated to UK charities who support the dignity of human life from conception to natural death.
The general public have become accustomed to using price comparison websites. As consumers have sought to attain greater discounts on motor insurance, other forms of financial services and their utility bills, commission levels generated by the websites having grown to an annual figure of over £450 million.
Catholic Values Ltd, the company behind the national initiative hope to take a share of this considerable sum by persuading the UK’s Catholic population and other likeminded individuals to use their financial power to help causes that value the dignity of life. Because the organisation is non-profit making, at least 90% of the commission generated will be passed on to these causes.
The company plans to distribute funds on a quarterly basis and has already had meetings with the church hierarchy and contacted leading pro-life organisations to inform them of their plans.
Founder and Director of Catholic Values Ltd, Agostino Di Falco comments, “We think the public will welcome the sheer simplicity of our offering. The ability to save money on essential services combined with the opportunity to pass commission in their transaction onto charities they feel so passionate about.”
Martin Foley, former CEO of Life and Luke Parsons, long-time pro-life campaigner and barrister, will sit with Di Falco as Directors of the venture.
Catholic Values’ partner in this venture is beathatquote.com, an established company in the price comparison field.

Price Comparison Website With A Twist...
There are lots of price comparison websites out there: they work by getting commission on each product sold through their sites.
A new website has just started up. Catholic Values promises to donate at least 90% of the commission to UK charities which support the dignity of human life from conception to natural death. The venture works with Beatthatquote.com to generate the commission, and is a non-profitmaking organisation.
So, simply by using Catholic Values to find the cheapest quotes for car insurance, home insurance, loans, mortgages, credit cards and so on, charities which value human life will get the commission, and at no extra cost to you, the buyer.
I think this is an excellent venture, and wish it every success. Pop over to the website and see what they have to offer.
