On August 26, 2021, Bishop Robert Guglielmone of the diocese of Charleston headlined an inaugural gala in Greenville, South Carolina at which the Veritas Catholic Information Center (VCIC) was formally introduced to over 150 friends and supporters. Addresses from the Bishop, Fr. Jay Scott Newman, and Catholic author Joseph Pearce emphasized the need for authentic Christian evangelism in an age desperately in need of a saving faith.
During 2021, a seven-person Board of Directors was selected, the VCIC was formally incorporated as a non-profit corporation under the laws of the state of South Carolina, and an application was submitted to the IRS to obtain federal tax- exempt 501(c)(3) status. Successful notification should be received during the first quarter of 2022.
Fundraising efforts then began in earnest, and the Board of Directors negotiated a fiscal sponsorship agreement with the Knights of Columbus to enable donors to immediately deduct contributions to the VCIC. This agreement will be terminated when the VCIC receives official 501(c)(3) status.
On January 27, 2022, the VCIC celebrated Christmas with friends and supporters and announced a major fundraising drive. Due to a generous matching donation of $100.000, the VCIC has now raised over $200,000. A heartfelt Thank You to all who helped make this possible, and thanks be to God for his abundant blessings!
Onward in 2022
Due to the overwhelming generosity of our supporters, the VCIC is ready to move to the next phase – locating, leasing and furnishing an appropriate space in downtown Greenville in order to share the truth, beauty and goodness of the Gospel. This effort has already begun; updates will be posted on the website as, God willing, we look forward to a grand opening in 2022.
