"End of Year Donations"
by GLPA Members
Monday, December 14, 7:15 PM
Normally on the confabulation night in December we also have a long standing tradition of end of the year fundraising. The membership has always been very generous on this night. This is a way for you to support the club and its projects to upgrade and maintain the building. Owning your own building allows you to offer many more programs and group activities to the membership but it also comes with the cost of building maintenance and utilities.
Normally we have a table down front near the podium, with a decorated basket and special holiday envelopes that members attending the Confabulation drop their checks in or a few dollars in cash. We normally raise over 3000 dollars on this night. That is a lot of money not to take in this year due to the virus and limited audience attendance on the Dec14-Mini Show which would normally be the confabulation night.
So we have set up a Donate link which will allow you to donate via PayPal or make a pledge and send a check by mail. Even if you do not have a PayPal account you can use PayPal with your credit card to make a onetime donation. Of course if you will be at the Dec 14th Mini Show you can bring your check with you and put it in the basket as you have normally done. The direct link to the Donate page is http://www.greaterlynnphoto.org/donate.php You do not have to use the link you can just mail your check in if you wish.
Thank you to the members who have already send in generous end of the year donations and thank you to Andrew Katsampes who did the work on making us a PayPal donation link page.
Remember, if you want to get that donation in for tax purposes, now is the time to make it. Make your end of year donations in any amount. Every little bit helps replenish the fund for the projects completed. All mailed yearend donation checks must be dated prior to January 1, 2021 and must be received by January 5th
If mailing a check, mail your donations to-
