How to Make Your Donation

Dear Friends,

Thank you once again for signing the Pledge "I will set up a $10 monthly donation to CatComm (or $120 annually) but only if 199 other people will too, and only if one philanthropist will match our joint donations dollar for dollar," which has now been met!

As promised, in this email I will provide a variety of options as to how you can make your $10 monthly or $120 annual donation to Catalytic Communities in 2006. At the moment US$120 = GBP 70 (pounds) = BRL 282 (Brazilian reais). Don't forget, your contribution is tax-deductible in the USA. And thank you to those of you who have already sent your Pledge contribution!

Here are five donation options; if none suit you and you would like help finding a better approach, please contact me directly (theresa@catcomm.org). Here goes!...

OPTION #1

Check - mail your $10 check each month, or $120 annual contribution, to Catalytic Communities, PO Box 42010, Washington, DC 20015, USA. 100% of your $120 comes directly to Catalytic Communities if your check is US-issued.

OPTION #2

Wire CatComm's US bank account - Set up a monthly or one-time wire transfer directly to Catalytic Communities' US bank account using the following information: Recipient: Catalytic CommunitiesBank: CitibankAccount #: 66796954Routing #: 254070116100% of your $120 comes directly to Catalytic Communities if your account is US-based.

OPTION #3

Wire CatComm's Brazil bank account - Set up a monthy or one-time wire transfer directly to Comunidades Catalisadoras' Brazil bank account using the following information: Recipient: Comunidades CatalisadorasBank: Banco ABN Amro Real SA no. 356AgĂȘncia/branch: 1360Account #: 6001403-5CHIPS UID 012995SWIFT ABNABRSP100% of your $120 comes directly to Catalytic Communities if your account is Brazil-based.

OPTION #4

Credit card, bank transfer, or debit via PayPal - if you subscribe to PayPal service online, or plan to do so, you may make your contribution via PayPal by visiting our homepage http://www.catcomm.org/ and clicking in the upper left on "PayPal." For those who do not know PayPal, it is a highly trustworthy Internet-based payment service powered by Ebay, which accepts contributions in just about any currency type. 97.5% of your $120 comes directly to Cataytic Communities, as PayPal keeps 2.5% for offering their services.

OPTION #5

Credit card via Network for Good - if you don't want to sign up for PayPal and would prefer to go through a very reputable nonprofit donation-receiving service, you may choose to use Network for Good, powered by GuideStar (the US's clearinghouse of nonprofit information and transparency), also by visiting our homepage http://www.catcomm.org/ and clicking in the upper left, this time on "Credit." Network for Good's site also allows you to specify you would prefer to make an automatic monthly contribution, saving you hassle down the road. 95% of your $120 comes directly to Catalytic Communities, as Network for Good keeps 5% for offering their services.

Thanks, once again, for your support!

Warmest wishes,

Theresa

Hi. I came across your post and found it very interesting. I was wondering whether you can help me in finding more information on "automatically send digital products". I came across automatically send digital products. What do you think?
