IC Fundraising Drive — Day 2!

ic_ipad_iconAs you’ve probably noticed from the Home page, we’re conducting an InsideCatholic fundraising drive this week. I hope you’ll participate. While we offer our articles, columns, and blog posts free of charge — unlike a print magazine — that doesn’t mean that they’re free to us.

Running an online publication is an expensive business — we have to pay writers, staff, web hosts, site programmers, insurance companies, bulk emailers and photo services. While we’re able to keep our overhead low through efficiency, home offices, and technology, we still have costs. And because of the weak economy, they’ve gotten harder to meet.

That’s why we need your help.

Believe me, I don’t like asking for money. In fact, it’s high up on my list of Things To Avoid (it falls between “Bear wrestling” and  “Attending a James Taylor concert.”). But the fact is, we need your support.

If you read our early January announcement, or had a look at our vision for the next InsideCatholic, you know we’re refocusing our editorial so it better meets the needs of the Church right now, while at the same time, transitioning to the next generation of publishing.

We’re doing this because this is a genuine mission to us — it’s not just a job. The world needs the transformative wisdom of Catholicism, and we’re here to help bring it to them.

But we need you to stand with us in doing so. Can we count on you?

Below, you’ll find the magic buttons, offering three ways to support us. Please click on one of them, and give whatever you think is reasonable. May the Lord bless you for your generosity and commitment to spreading His truth.

Crisis Magazine Comments Policy

This is a Catholic forum. As such:

  1. All comments must directly address the article. “I tell you, on the day of judgment men will render account for every careless word they utter.” (Matthew 12:36)
  2. No profanity, ad hominems, hot tempers, or racial or religious invectives. “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:32)
  3. We will not tolerate heresy, calumny, or attacks upon our Holy Mother Church or Holy Father. “And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16:18)
  4. Keep it brief. No lengthy rants or block quotes. “For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” (James 4:14)
  5. If you see a comment that doesn’t meet our standards, please flag it so a moderator may remove it. “Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness.” (Galatians 6:1)
  6. All comments may be removed at the moderators’ discretion. “But of that day and hour no one knows…” (Matthew 24:36)
  7. Crisis isn’t responsible for the content of the comments box. Comments do not represent the views of Crisis magazine, its editors, authors, or publishers. “Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God… So each of us shall give account of himself to God.” (Romans 14:10, 12)
