How can I sponsor Theologika.net?
Theologika.net is an online resource offered at no charge to our users. Our goal is to support the catechetical and evangelization mission of the Church by providing a database of trustworthy, relevant, authoritative information for use in ministry or personal spiritual growth. Our dream is that in even the smallest, most isolated village in the world, if there is a computer that can reach the Internet, the collected thinking of the Christian church through the centuries, that has been indexed and organized through the Theologika database, will be available to the man, woman or child who wants to learn more about God and grow in faith. And in our own, highly developed, capitalistic countries of the world, the same resources will be available to those who seek the same knowledge and growth – regardless of ability to go out and buy a book or attend a class.
Just now, Theologika.net is in its infancy. It’s less than a year old, but already hundreds of items have been tagged, and we have users all around the world. The number of entries and Trustees entering materials is growing at a steady pace. Within a year, Theologika will have become a substantial resource for our Christian community. We’re even hoping to be able to move into languages beyond English soon.
So, how to fund the effort?
Theologika.net is not a charity. We can’t offer tax-deductiblity in return for charitable donations. We encourage you to donate to your parish, to the missions, to schools. However, we can’t ask for your donations.
What we can offer are sponsorship listings on our webpages, with our thanks. If you have a business, we’re happy to link to your website. Take the cost out of your advertising budget and it still may be deductible! (Check with your accountant, of course.)
If you’d like to help support the development of this resource for ministry, please contact us. We’ll be happy to talk with you about how you can help. We have a variety of options available and will be delighted to work with you to find the best fit. Just as the mighty redwood tree has its start from tiny seeds in tiny cones and/or can grow from the base of parent trees, so together we can grow a great resource for the Church from a tiny start.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
