Make ZENIT grow!

Dear friend,

As you know, ZENIT is truly a people-supported organization, financed by readers like you.

Every year, as ZENIT's programs have developed, our annual budget has also increased: from $100,000 nearly 17 years ago, when there were only five of us on the ZENIT team, to $1,5 million this year, now that we have 40 ZENIT staffers from more than 10 countries to publish ZENIT in seven languages (Spanish, English, French, German, Portuguese, Italian and Arabic.)

Happily, we can attest that our readers' generosity has always provided the necessary support to cover these costs.

This generosity from thousands of readers enabled ZENIT to celebrate its 17th birthday last year and to continue forward to today.

Do you support our continued growth? Do you think ZENIT should continue developing?

If your answer is YES, please contribute with the support you can give!

Your contribution, regardless of the amount, is an irreplaceable piece in the great mosaic of donations that come from thousands of readers from around the world, and it enables ZENIT to be a significant player in the communications media today.

With your contribution, you can help ZENIT grow.

We are counting on you during this 2015 donations campaign!
