Press Release - VOTF GRATIFIED BY GENEROUS RESPONSE OF DONORS

For Immediate Release
The Organization Is Working Toward a More Secure Financial Base

July 21, 2009 – Boston –One week after announcing an urgent need for financial support, Voice of the Faithful reports that donors have responded with more than $63,000 to date and still coming.

‘We are deeply grateful to our many generous donors and encouraged by their sentiments of support,” said Bill Casey, Chairman of the Board of Trustees. “Their response is a testament to the important work that Voice of the Faithful does. It also reinvigorates the organization as we work toward the release of new initiatives aimed at transforming the Catholic Church.

“Now we begin to build a stable base of predictable income to sustain our ongoing operations. We will invite our members to support that effort when we roll out the Strategic Plan in early August.”

VOTF members are also completing plans for the 2009 National VOTF Convention in Long Island, New York, October 30-31—an event that will bring members together in a national gathering.
