RISU is looking for friends-benefactors
As RISU readers know, on June 2, 2020, we launched a new RISU portal at risu.ua. The company-developer of the site gave us a year to raise funds to pay for the work, taking into account our capacities and coronavirus-related circumstances.
Unfortunately, we could not find grant funds for this, and the settlement time is approaching.
That is why, for the first time, we are so actively asking our readers to join this cause and help us raise almost 360 thousand UAH (over 12.5 thousand dollars) for the new RISU website.
Given that the RISU editorial office has been left without funding and has a debt for the site, we want to create a stabilization fund that would allow us to work in the absence of grants or other permanent funding. We remind you that RISU operates thanks to grants and donors. None of the Churches or religious organizations finances us - some specific individuals or institutions support it.
Bishop Borys Gudziak often says that fundraising is friend-raising! And our old friend Mykhailo Salo says that sponsors who give large one-time sums are important. Still, those friends who donate larger or smaller sums regularly, preferably monthly, are especially valuable! Therefore, RISU gathers regular friends-readers-authors and just good people who care about religious journalism in Ukraine and believe that projects such as RISU should fully operate and develop.
And let not the hand giving for a good cause be impoverished!
