Final Tally for Issues, Etc. Fundraiser

Thanks to our readers who made generous contributions to Issues, Etc. and the Brothers of John the Steadfast. We raised a total of $3,803. Of that total $2,570 was designated for Issues, Etc. and $1,233 was designated for the Brothers of John the Steadfast.

We had recommended a 90% Issues/10% BJS ratio for contributions. It came in a little higher than that because many members/readers sent in checks for BJS only because they are already giving directly to Issues.

The Brothers are committed to supporting new Lutheran media and we know of no better example than Issues, Etc. and so we thank you for donating to this Christ-centered and Cross-focused program. We hope you will join us next fall for our second annual fund-raiser for this important cause. We will be leaving the fund-raising buttons live on the top of the homepage so that you can also donate year-round.
