After an unavoidable hiatus over the summer at its meeting Nov.6 meeting our board was pleased to hear of the availability of access to a charitable number. It is expected that the potential for tax free donations will facilitate financial contributions from several previously contacted organizations. As well, donation invitations will be sent to a range of individuals in our personal networks. Our long expected online crowdfunding campaign will soon be ready to go. Board members welcomed these several new developments and will plan associated events and communications to optimize the potential for financial and moral support. Finally, thanks to a suggestion from a former board member we will be submitting an application to a funding programme for mentoring black youth, a key demographic for our project.
