CUIT Board of Trustees

The Catholic United Investment Trust (CUIT)

NOTE:  In May 2012, the Religious Communities Trust (RCT) was merged with the Catholic United Investment Trust (CUIT) to form a single, unified trust to oversee the CUIT investment programs.  At that point, the RCT Funds were renamed as CUIT Funds.  CBIS extends our sincere gratitude for the service of all former RCT Trustees.

Started in 1983, CUIT is an independent not-for-profit investment trust established by Catholic religious leaders with the mission to develop and provide secure, reliable investment programs for Catholic organizations and institutions.
