We Need Your Support This Month!

It’s the 15th of the month again, and that means it’s time for our monthly fundraiser.

I have just four quick things to say:

First, I’d like to thank all of you who have given so far this month, or throughout this year. Your support and generosity have been nothing short of amazing during what has really been a grueling 2017, and we couldn’t have done this without you!

Second, I’d like to make a special appeal to all of you who have not yet given a gift in support of our work, and ask you to prayerfully consider making this your first time. We provide our content to you free of charge, but we simply ask that if you find it valuable, you make a tax-deductible contribution of any amount, no matter how large or small, in support of our efforts.

Third, I hear from people all the time who don’t realize we have an option to donate by mail. You can do so by filling out the form on this page and mailing it in with your check to the address provided. Remember, you only need to fill out the form the first time you mail a check so that we can create a donor profile for you. After that, we’ll have you in the system. Also, for those of you who given through your Fidelity Charitable accounts, we are now in their electronic system, making us easier to find than ever. No mailings required!

Fourth (and finally), I’d like to continue our push to build up to 400 recurring $50 monthly donors. Since our last campaign where we explained the idea of “The 400”, we have increased our monthly recurring donations by just over $900, which is equivalent to 18 new $50/month donors. Added to the 24 who were already donating $50 or more per month, that means we’re now at 42 out of 400. Not a bad start, but we certainly have room to grow. (And setting up a recurring donation requires just one extra click — see our brief video walkthrough here!)

Remember, the reason why we’re looking for recurring donors is so that we can count on a certain amount of income. This could ultimately mean fewer fundraising campaigns, and a lot better planning on our part.

One thing several people wrote to us about is setting up recurring donations of less than $50/month. Of course any amount is wonderful, and we’d be just as happy with 800 $25 donors or 1600 $12.50 donors, etc. But out of hundreds of thousands of readers each month — millions over the course of the year — we’re targeting a reasonable number we think we can reach that will set our feet on firmer financial footing. Just 400 people giving $50/month. We know not everyone can do this, but some can. This goal is attainable with your help!

As 2017 winds to a close, we still have a lot to do, and things are not slowing down. Please help us to fill in the gap and close out this month’s fundraiser as soon as possible so we can keep our focus on more important things!

Thank you as always for your readership and support.

In Christ,

Steve Skojec
Publisher & Executive Director

  1. Thanks Steve for keeping up the hard and good work. The task that is before us is a hard and many times a lonely one that opens us up to every sort of misunderstanding and vicious attack. However, I believe that it is the work that the Lord has laid before us and our salvation depends on our embracing it. Let us work and do the good while it’s possible, for as Cardinal Burke alluded to in his recent interview, the time will come when night will fall and we shall be unable to work…only pray.

    I was recently impugned on another site as to spinning things negative in order to keep this website above water. I have no problem admitting that I support this website 100% (though not all of the comments, which should be a given) and that I receive zero financial remuneration for my support. So, I cannot be accused of furthering my own material gain in support of this site. I do not spin things negative, but rather give my honest, if limited, take on the matters at hand. God is my Judge. And, I admit, that I fear his judgement (please, Good and Gracious Lord help me to fear it more than I do!) because I am a mortal man and have many failings.

    Steve desires to make this site more than it is, and I hope and pray that one day soon he is able to achieve his goal. But, he cannot do so without out support. I am a financial contributor to this site for a reason: because often times it says what needs to be said in order to support the Faith and the faithful which other sites refuse to say or only hint at, and it has done so from its inception.

    I pray that it is God’s Holy Will that we shall see His Victory and rejoice together in the Eternal Day. Amen.

  2. Steve. There are so many excellent traditional and conservative Catholic blogs competing for funds one has to divide his donations accordingly. Also, paying $50.00 or $100.00 a month or even $10.00 per month is a very steep price for each version of Traditional Catholic news. In my opinion a consolidation among the traditional Catholic blogs should be considered as the current economic model of trying to obtain, in the case of OnePeterFive, $20,000 per month doesn’t make sense to me. Anyway, I did make a $50.00 this month and hope to continue doing it. By the way, my funding of traditional Catholic blogs represents a partial transfer of giving to charities sponsored by the Catholic Church including my local Novus Ordo parish.

    • If you are attending Mass there, then you are obliged to contribute to the stability of the Parish, even if it’s only a small contribution.

        • Yes, sorry Michael I was not meaning to reprimand you. During these days of distress some people do get it into their heads to use the Church and excuse them selves from contributing to the Parish because their upset. If we go and receive then we need to give too (if we can.)

  3. Steve, I didn’t get any response to my posts last time about making it possible to donate by a simple anonymous paypal donation without requiring personal details. Nor did I get a reply to my email about it. Just saying – again!
