Thank You, Associates

Article excerpt

Commonweal is in its ninth decade of providing a place for reflective, progressive Catholic thought, a unique venture that has allowed a wide variety of voices to reach an engaged international readership. We have been able to do this because of the steadfast support of the Commonweal Associates. Their contributions help us bridge the gap each year between our revenue and expenses, to pay our writers and cartoonists, and to promote the magazine. That is why each year at this time we thank those who have contributed to the Associates, especially the people listed below whose gift of $50 or more arrived in our office between January 14, 2006, and January 11, 2007. If you have not yet become a member of the Associates, you are most welcome to join their generous company (join online at
