My Dear Sisters,
We haven’t done a campaign to raise funds in a very long while. We have a few generous contributors and that is so greatly appreciated. About 3 – 4 years ago, and don’t hold that as exact, we rented a permanent Temple space. We were not able to purchase a place of our own due to not having reliable income to pay a mortgage. So we decided to rent. Those of us who are very active, believed it was quite a bonus to have our own space where we could meet, rather than scrambling every time we planned an event or a ritual trying to figure out where to have it. Also, to have things there, the kind of things we used over and over. It certainly helped with the schlepping!
Here is the rub…. Rent doesn’t come cheap in Austin and we were depleting our treasury rapidly as our outgo exceeded our income by about 200%. Because of that we made a decision to give up this space, and made arrangements with Nature’s Treasures to hold our events there. We are contracted to use their space through March of 2019. We will make a decision about the rest of the year shortly before that time.
Austin RCG needs your help with donations. We have a donation plate on the Giving Altar, but sadly it is little used. We just forget when it is time to go home. We understand.
So here is what we have done. We have created a fund raiser. It is online. You can choose to make a one time donation or you can set up a recurring donation so you never have to worry about it again. You can also elect to make a donation to our care fund, which was designed so that if we have a member who really needed a bit of financial help for something critical, we would have the funds to help her. So it would be nice to build that fund up as well.
We have made it really easy – you just set it up and forget about it. All you need is your bank card. It would help so much! This is your link.
Your can donate here!
In service to Her,
Your Austin RCG Council
