Hey there 1P5ers!
I just wanted to remind you we have an anonymous donor who has pledged to match the first $5,000 we raise this month. With $4,900 raised so far, we are very close to reaching that milestone. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our incredible supporters who have gotten us this far!
Since we’re almost there, will you help us cross the finish line by making a gift today?
Although we’ll almost certainly hit $5,000, we’re still playing catch up. Fundraising is how we pay our operating costs, and we have plans to improve and expand our offerings, and even hire some help. So far in 2016, we’ve brought on board an accounting consultant and a freelance editor, and that’s just for starters.
At the moment, our monthly fundraising goal is $10,000. (So far, I think we’ve only hit it once.) We’re doing well, but we could be doing even better with your help!
Your generous support has made it possible for us to become one of the most influential and widely-read Catholic publications on the Internet today. We’re giving you the news and analysis you can’t find anywhere else, and with the current situation in the Church showing no signs of abating, we believe it’s more important than ever that we keep going.
It’s a Friday afternoon after a long week, so I’m not going to take any more of your time. I just ask that you prayerfully consider making us a part of your tithe, or even a one-time recipient of your generosity. No amount is too large or too small. Every bit counts. Every bit helps. (Contributions are tax-deductible as applicable by law.)
God bless you, and have a great weekend and Father’s Day!
