We received notice yesterday that the State of New Mexico has recognized and approved Kateri College’s Articles of Incorporation as a nonprofit educational institution! We now will file with the Federal government to receive federal recognition as a 501c3 organization.
Please consider supporting our mission to start a new college in Gallup. It’s hard to believe, but no other Catholic college exists in New Mexico, Arizona, or Utah! Several pilot programs are present in Phoenix and Tucson, but no physical Catholic campuses are here. We aim to change that in order to offer a Catholic education that truly integrates both the liberal and the vocational arts to everyone, Catholic or non-Catholic, in the southwest and in the nation.
If you share our view that such a new approach to education is needed and necessary, please consider helping us financially. We would like to welcome our first class of students in the Fall of 2024. In order to do so, we need to raise 1.2 million dollars in the next two years! A monumental task but one which we can do first through God’s grace working through the generosity of you, our friends and benefactors.
You may now donate to Kateri College in two ways. You may send checks directly to Kateri College at 503 W. Historic Hwy 66, Suite A, Gallup, NM 87301. If the IRS approves our application by years’ end, then all donations are tax-deductible.
If you have concerns about donations definitely being tax-deductible for this tax year, then we have partnered with the Catholic People’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose primary focus is helping the Gallup diocese to accept donations on our behalf. Send checks to the Catholic People’s Foundation but earmarked for Kateri College and the CPF will hold all donations for Kateri. The CPF has also graciously allowed us to share office space with them and so we share the same mailing address: 503 W. Historic Hwy 66, Suite A, Gallup, NM, 87301.
In the words of Archbishop Fulton Sheen, “God love you!”
