2014 is a historic year for Catalonia, and the Catalan Institute of America wants to rise up to the challenge. The Catalan Institute of America is calling on all its supporters to contribute to an extraordinary initiative called the Civic Action Fund. Funds will be dedicated to hiring a part-time Executive Director responsible for the Institute’s day-to-day operations, which will add a new level of professional management to our organization. This will allow us to undertake an ambitious advocacy and outreach effort in support of the democratic process underway in Catalonia.
$2,500 has already been pledged as start-up funds for this effort. The Catalan Institute will match dollar-for-dollar any donations made to the Civic Action Fund up to $10,000. We have set the goal of raising $10,000 to fund this part-time position through the rest of the year. The Catalan Institute is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, so your donations will be tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the law.
At the Catalan Institute of America we believe that civil society needs to be engaged in this historic process, and that we cannot simply rely on public institutions to advocate for the Catalan process. This is your chance to make a difference; contribute via credit card using one of the options below.
• ONE-TIME DONATION – SPECIFY THE AMOUNT
• MAKE A MONTHLY DONATION
• BECOME A SPONSOR
