Impact is the official international magazine for the International Association of Scientologists (IAS).
"The IAS would not be able to fund all of the projects that need funding from membership dues alone. This became obvious very early on in our history. Members started making extra donations, even though they were already Lifetime Members. First the Honor Roll was established and then the honor status of Patron. A gradient scale of honor statuses has evolved so as to acknowledge members for their increasing levels of donations.
PATRON Awarded to those who donate $40,000.00 U.S.
PATRON WITH HONORS Awarded to those who donate $100,000.00 U.S.
PATRON MERITORIOUS Awarded to those who donate $250,000.00 U.S.

Reed Slatkin is a Patron of the IAS. David and Bennetta Slaughter (what a coincidence) are Patrons Meritorious. So here's one instance where the Church of Scientology forgot to deperson Reed Slatkin.
