Matching Grant: Huge News about our Lenten Project!

2 and Ave Maria Press have partnered to provide copies of A Catholic Mother’s Companion to Pregnancy to pregnancy centers across the United States. Every 10 dollar donation sponsors a book to be sent to the pregnancy centers.

And now we have huge news: a $500 matching grant!

Our friends at Roman Catholic Spiritual Direction are passionate about providing spiritual resources to those who are most vulnerable and in need of the love and perspective of God. Out of that passion they have pledged a matching gift of $500 to the Project.

That means for every $10 you donate, they will match it with another $10 up to a total of $500! The pledge is only active until the the second week of March.

Please join us and help us serve women in need and provide spiritual support to pregnant women!

Our aim with this Lenten project is to benefit women with the guidance and companionship of the book and encourage them to walk with Mary. I hope you’ll prayerfully consider joining us.

You can learn more about this project and make your donation online at Indiegogo or make your donation by check to:

Ave Maria Press
Attn: Karey Circosta
P.O. Box 428
Notre Dame, IN 46556

Please notify me by email to [email protected] if you are donating by check so we can verify your gift as part of the matching grant.

Make your donation today – we need you, and the moms these centers serve have bravely chosen life and need our support, but more importantly the loving care of the companionship our Blessed Mother provides.

Thank you for being a special part of this amazing project!
