Religion Communicators Council


Religion Communicators Council

An Interfaith Association of Religion Communicators since 1929


July 15, 2014

Dear RCC Colleagues,

We thought this was worth repeating from our May note to you!

These are critical times for bringing faith perspectives into the public dialogue. Religion is in the headlines daily. We in the Religion Communicators Council (RCC) are on the frontlines  to increase public awareness of religion's role in our world. As we celebrate our 85th anniversary this year we are committed to continue to share our stories in the social and digital media.

Because membership dues cover less than one-third of RCC's modest operating budget, we count on the generosity of members and friends to help RCC move forward.

Your financial gifts provide professional support, resources, local chapters, and an annual meeting.  Your gifts also help us realize our vision of providing new activities and resources:

  • Providing more scholarships and opportunities for emerging religion communicators.
  • Enhancing opportunities for our members to be Accredited in Public Relations (APR).
  • Revitalizing our web site into a true resource center that includes on-the-fly response to critical issues in religion.
