Important Matching Fundraising Offer -
But Only If IJC Members Donate First
Dear IJC Members and Friends,
As you know, the IJC has a deficit to be met before the end of August. Details have been explained in recent open meetings and will again be explained at the upcoming AGM on June 24th. The Board doesn't want to carry the deficit over to next year because it would severely deplete funds available for next year's budget and compromise the activities that we have already planned. The good news is that some major backers have offered to donate a total of €15,000 on one condition: that the IJC membership itself raise at least €7,000 by June 30th. To be clear, that means these donations are in addition to a payment of next year's membership fees. It means these donations are transferred to our bank account before June 30th.
I am asking each of you for your help in meeting this challenge to set our Community on a firmer financial foundation. If you can give, I ask you to make a donation and inform the IJC Treasurer in a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating the amount. The donations can be sent to:
(1) the IJC's Belgian account in Euro at the KBC Bank. The bank account IBAN is BE61 7350 0725 8517
(2) American Friends of the IJC Belgium in US Dollars. You mail a check in US Dollars to:
American Friends of the IJC Belgium
E-mail address: AmericanFriendsIJC@gmail.com
Please make the sum on the check a round number and indicate the word "donation".
The IJC Board will very much appreciate your help at this time in making this matching offer a reality.
Steven Brummel, President
