Honoring Your Support
Catholic Extension is grateful for the passionate men and women who are making an impact today as well as sustaining our work long into the future. To honor your generosity and help you connect with like-minded people, we have established the following giving societies for donors who have made a substantial commitment to furthering our mission.
Two by Two
Two by Two is Catholic Extension’s premier leadership annual giving society. Donors of this society join with us in building communities of faith by giving commitments of $1,000 to $5,000 annually to Catholic Extension. This esteemed group of individuals represents our most engaged, dedicated, and loyal annual giving donors.
By giving a total of $1,000 or more each year, you have access to the following benefits:
- Lumen Christi Regional Judging: Two by Two donors participate as regional judges to help select Catholic Extension’s national Lumen Christi Award recipient. This award honors an individual or group working in one of the dioceses we support who demonstrates how the power of faith can transform lives and communities. The award is accompanied by a $50,000 grant to support the recipient’s ministry.
- Important Gatherings: Exclusive invitations to virtual immersion trips and regional Catholic Extension events with Senior Leadership and other Two by Two donors.
- Extension Magazine
- Annual Report and Mid-Year Impact Report
- Regular email updates
The Legacy Club is a special group of Catholic Extension supporters who have made the inspiring commitment to continue building churches and the Church in America’s poorest places for many years to come. You, too, can become part of this group and ensure that our mission will be sustained by leaving a gift to Catholic Extension in your will or by making Catholic Extension the beneficiary of a Life Insurance Policy or Retirement Fund.
As a member of the Legacy Club, you can make a profound impact on the future of the Catholic Church. With your legacy gift, you are investing in our mission of developing future leaders, engaging youth in the life of the Church, and building churches in poor communities where faith is needed most.
Legacy Club members receive the following benefits:
- Special masses celebrated each year for all our Legacy Club members.
- A free, lifetime subscription to Extension magazine, so you can see, in words and photos, the extraordinary difference you are making.
- Regular updates, including personal letters direct ‘from the field,’ so you will be updated with the knowledge that your generosity is making a lasting impact.
- At your passing, you will be remembered at a special memorial Mass, celebrated in a Catholic Extension mission parish.
