The success of the online promo code MCGIVNEY2020 showed that the more prospective members know about our saintly founder, the more likely they are to join our ranks. The fact that more than 1900 men joined the Order online in less than three weeks during this promotion proved that – when membership in the Order is presented to them in a compelling way – men will join.
That’s why I am pleased to announce today that free online membership using the promo code MCGIVNEY2020 has been extended through the end of August. For the rest of this month, every man who joins online at kofc.org/joinus
will pay $0 first-year dues by entering the promo code MCGIVNEY2020.
This is exciting news for the Order at all levels. It will help us to grow membership in tribute to Fr. McGivney in advance of his pending Beatification. It gives each jurisdiction a pool of new, online members who are open to being convinced of the value of council-based membership. And it gives your council the ability to continue to substantively engage with those prospects who would be motivated to join as part of this promotion.
Let’s take advantage of this opportunity. We need new members now more than ever before because the needs of the Church and society are greater than ever before. Promote this opportunity throughout your parish and community. With no financial commitment for their first year of membership – and with the opportunity to make a tangible difference in their parish and community – this is a Win/Win for every prospective Knight.
