At the CC Summit, we were inspired by the call of the New Renaissance of beauty that the Church and the world need so desperately, and we’re committed to becoming an organization that can work for that Renaissance for the long term. Since the Summit, you’ve all been waiting to hear what the next step is for Catholic Creatives as a movement and a professional community. We are now ready to share that next step.
Our goals are to strengthen our community by supporting each other in learning and growing, make ourselves more accessible professionally to the wider world, and provide a monetary foundation for Catholic Creatives to grow.
With all that in mind, we are launching an official Catholic Creatives Patreon to provide monthly financial support for the organization and give value back to you in the community.
Our Facebook group and current Slack channels will stay just as they are, but you’re going to want to become a monthly patron for the awesome rewards we’ve created.
Here are the levels:
For those of us who didn’t make it to the Summit or who just want a more ongoing Summit experience. This level gives full access to the Summit content and access to exclusive, monthly videos led by other CC members, such as creative hacks, short training sessions, and business tips. This level is $15/month.
For those of us who are offering our professional services to the world and also want ongoing support and community from other professionals. Innovators will be the first to be listed on the Catholic Creatives public directory of creatives, which is some serious marketing exposure (so you can write this off on your taxes, too!). You will have exclusive, first access to CC Summit 2018 tickets and get access to monthly virtual hangouts with other Innovators, consisting of live discussions with speakers about business and the New Renaissance.
So skip eating out just one time per month and become the first Catholic Creatives to go public on our website! This level is $30/month.
For those of us who aren’t necessarily freelancing but want to support the community and the creation of the podcast and the blog. For less than your Netflix subscription, you’ll get access to the CC Patrons Newsletter and exclusive news about CC and the next Summit. This is a great way to give back if you don’t want training (or if you’re not in the group -- tell your grandparents!). This level is $7/month.
We can’t thank you enough for the support you’ve shown this far -- to each other, to the Summit, and to Catholic Creatives as a community.
Over the next year, we want to build the foundation for our long term growth, which includes redesigning our website as a complete members directory (Innovators will be listed before that, though), finding more creatives and sponsors, spreading the word about CC, and preparing for the 2018 Summit.
Our Facebook group will always be here, but if you’re serious about committing to this New Renaissance, start by joining our community on Patreon.
Thank you, and we hope to see you in a virtual hangout soon!
