$11.6 million in new payments!
More than $11.6 million in funds from One Faith, One Hope, One Love will be paid during the next week to the campaign’s designated ministries, including about $3.5 million in parish rebates.
These payments, representing the six months from Jan. 1 to June 30, are the latest of the campaign’s semiannual installments:
• Catholic Education: $5,204,430
• Local Parishes: $3,566,258
• Retired Priests: $1,040,886
• Fostering Vocations: $1,039,309
• Catholic Charities Southwestern Ohio: $483,330
• Catholic Social Services of the Miami Valley: $291,948
The Fostering Vocations component received an extra boost this period by qualifying for Procter & Gamble’s matching gifts program, which is restricted to higher education. Because the P&G program is expiring, some donors accelerated their gifts to the Athenaeum. The amount from P&G matching gifts during these six months came to more than $174,000 of the $200,000 received in off-site deposits.
Here are totals from the start of the campaign through the first half of 2017:
• Pledged: $166,564,026
• Collected: $77,443,529
• Percentage of collections to pledge: 46%
