Our Boosters Make a Big Difference to our Success!

What Are the Boosters?

The CatholicCulture.org Boosters are a group of CatholicCulture.org users whose personal apostolic goals coincide so closely with those of CatholicCulture.org that they have decided to play a special role in promoting and supporting our mission to enrich Faith, strengthen the Church and form Catholic culture. The Boosters were formed in March of 2010.

What Do the Boosters Do?

Boosters provide feedback on our ideas for development; they promote the use of CatholicCulture.org among friends, associates and other contacts; as opportunity provides they alert Trinity Communications to possible support from foundations, parishes and interested associates; they make their own financial sacrifices to support our work; and they keep CatholicCulture.org firmly in their prayers. A particularly important Booster activity is the development of a combined Booster challenge grant for our annual Fall Campaign. This grant has grown each year, reaching $60,000 in 2015.

What is Required to Be a Booster?

The main requirement is a strong commitment to the mission of CatholicCulture.org. While each Booster undertakes to meet a personal financial goal each year, and this is obviously important, the minimum annual financial commitment is just $250. It is understood that each Booster”s financial situation is different. There are a variety of ways to support our mission, and Boosters participate in those they can when they can.

How Does Booster Communication Work?

CatholicCulture.org’s data record for each Booster is marked for Booster membership, and Boosters are removed from Trinity Communications' normal fund-raising program. Jeff Mirus, President of Trinity Communications, communicates regularly with Boosters separately, asking for feedback on new ideas, announcing new promotional programs, recording Booster pledges, reporting on the group's progress, and so on.

How Do I Become a Booster?

The original group of Boosters was formed through correspondence with about 125 of CatholicCulture.org's most active donors, of whom forty-eight joined the group. Early each year, key donors from the previous year are invited to join the Boosters, and volunteers from among all supporters are always welcome. Membership exceeded 100 by the end of 2013. If you wish to join, simply write to Jeff Mirus at [email protected] and indicate your desire to participate in the Boosters program.
