Our Boosters Make a Big Difference to our Success!

What Are the Boosters?

The Boosters are a group of users whose personal apostolic goals coincide so closely with those of 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 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 firmly in their prayers.

A particularly important Booster activity is the development of the Booster Challenge Grant for our annual Fall Campaign. This grant is formed from the combined commitments of roughly a hundred boosters. Commitments have ranged from $100 to $5,000, and the total grant typically reaches about $60,000.

What is Required to Be a Booster?

The main requirement is a strong commitment to the mission of 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 do what they can when they can.

How Does Booster Communication Work?’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 periodically with Boosters by personal email, sometimes asking for feedback on new ideas or announcing new initiatives, firming up the Booster membership each year, recording Booster pledges to the Fall Challenge, and so on.

How Do I Become a Booster?

The original group of Boosters was formed through correspondence with about 125 of'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. The program grew over time, and membership now typically hovers around 100. If you wish to join, simply write to Jeff Mirus at [email protected] and indicate your desire to participate in the Boosters program.
