28. Jun will increase the special projects budget from $110,000 to $1 million
Due to an explosion of new donors in the last several months, we have made the decision to significantly increase the money earmarked for our special projects marking our 10-year anniversary. The total will be increased to $1 million from the previous $110,000. Additionally, the project(s) as well as our 10-year anniversary celebrations will be extended to June 28th, 2023. Being volunteer-based, our organization did not use the increase in donations to open new offices, increase salaries or stash the funds for a “rainy day”— all resources are put right back into our communities to help the most needy and support worthwhile projects.
