CatholicCulture.org Boosters

By Dr. Jeff Mirus (bio - articles - email) | Apr 14, 2010

For the past few months we’ve been working behind the scenes to form a highly-committed group of key supporters to assist CatholicCulture.org in fulfilling its mission. We’re following a common practice among other institutions and calling this group the CatholicCulture.org Boosters. Those who participate are, in effect, playing a leading role in increasing the scope, reach and effectiveness of our apostolic work.

Boosters undertake a special responsibility to promote and support CatholicCulture.org. They may make a point of acquainting more people with our work through meetings, mail and email; they may provide valuable feedback on ideas for development and expansion; they may seek grant support for us, if they have the opportunity to do so, from foundations and parishes; they may make a special financial commitment to Trinity Communications each year; and they will certainly remember our work in their prayers.

After considerable messaging back and forth among more than a hundred of our most active financial supporters, forty-eight Boosters have emerged to form the initial group, taking up the challenge of putting CatholicCulture.org on a firmer footing in every possible respect. Many of our Boosters are able to make substantial financial commitments—and that is obviously very desirable—but, as indicated above, there are other ways to help.

The first project I asked the Boosters to work on was to provide feedback on a new promotional flyer we wanted to develop, a PDF flyer which users could easily email to friends and contacts; or print out and distribute at clubs, meetings and prayer groups; or post on bulletin boards. Taking advantage of several outstanding suggestions from the initial group of Boosters, we were able to design an effective promotional piece which is now available for use: CatholicCulture.org Promotional Flyer.

It is inevitable that we’ve missed some people who would love to become CatholicCulture.org Boosters. We found the first forty-eight by emailing a number of the more likely prospects based on past giving patterns, but I’m quite sure that does not exhaust the number of our users who would like to actively pitch in and help support and promote CatholicCulture.org. Those who agree to join this special group are removed from the normal fund-raising program and placed in a special category of highly-committed supporters with whom I communicate separately.

This commitment does not entail any specific responsibility, nor does it carry a particular price tag. What we’re trying to find are those persons who believe supporting, promoting and advancing the mission of CatholicCulture.org will serve as a very good way to meet their own apostolic goals for spreading the Faith, strengthening the Church and forming Catholic culture. If the work of CatholicCulture.org matches your own apostolic aspirations in this way, I’d love to add you to our Booster program. Please email me at witness@catholicculture.org.
