A Message to Current Supporters

Dear CatComm Supporters,

As you know, Catalytic Communities cares about the way it raises funds. We are constantly developing new strategies for achieving financial sustainability while meeting our mission. PledgeBank, a new initiative launched in the UK earlier this year and which we are helping launch in the US, offers an amazing new opportunity for us to leverage our networks. There are three ways in which you -- our supporters -- are in a special position to help:
  1. Confirm your commitment to Catalytic Communities by signing the PledgeBank pledge. Many of you are Sustaining Partners or regular investors in CatComm. You may even be committed to us at more than a $10 monthly or $120 annual level. All the more reason to sign the pledge! You will simply be confirming what you already plan to do! This is particularly vital in helping the Pledge "catch on fire!" Once we have the first 100 signers -- many of whom will be current supporters simply recommitting themselves -- the sooner we can outreach to broader networks through a PR campaign. To sign the Pledge, visit
  2. Leverage your networks of contacts in support of CatComm! Do as Patrick Donohue did, and prepare your own mailing to 10-20 close friends asking them to join in this important effort. Tell them: for the price of a few gallons of gas each month, they will be ensuring that Catalytic Communities can expand its efforts in 2006. To view Patrick's sample email, click here.
  3. Visit the Campaign Countdown Blog at and leave comments testifying to your excitement and belief in CatComm's approach to development and social change!
