The Catholic Forum, Inc.

Support the Catholic Forum


Catholic Forum Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide a forum, through cable television and Internet broadcasts, which explores universal aspects of Catholic teaching, liturgy, lifestyle and culture through conversations with those who live it out. While we are fortunate in that having much of the equipment needed to produce the shows provided to us by our home station (WKTV in Wyoming, Michigan) makes our budget a fraction of what it would otherwise be, the cost of recording media and maintaining distribution channels on the Internet is not negligible. While $3000 may not seem like a very big budget, when it relies on the generosity of a handful of contributors, it can seem pretty daunting and sometimes downright precarious.

We are prohibited from soliciting funds on our broadcasts, so this is our only opportunity to invite you to help us do what we do with a tax-deductible gift. By broadening our base of support, we hope to better protect ourselves from the potentially debilitating effects of significant financial shortfalls. That's not to say that we don't welcome and aren't grateful for the occasional larger contribution we receive from some underwriters. (In fact, we are happy to specially recognize corporate or individual underwriters who contribute at levels of $100+ and $500+ levels.) However, even these larger gifts typically provide only a fraction of our financial needs. Therefore, we invite you to be a part of this work of encouraging and educating those who wish to grow in, or are just curious about, the Catholic faith.

Our Promise

Whatever the reason that may compel you to support our work, and regardless of the amount of your assistance, know that we are profoundly grateful for your support and trust, and will continually strive to be responsible and accountable stewards of your financial gifts to this ministry.

Please, don't hesitate

We welcome your questions and comments. We will respond to any questions our listeners may have concerning the Catholic Church and its teachings. Our answers reflect and support the teachings of the Pope and the Magisterium of the Catholic Church.
