Dear Supporters of the Center for a Stateless Society,
Its time for me to again report to you on our financial situation and ask you to please help us pay some bills. Our fundraising goal this month is $1,320. Please support our work. Donate using the ChipIn widget on any page of our web site. Financial details follow …
We have had $1820 in total expenses for this past month of June. Those expenses are partially offset by $300 in income from recurring donations. Additionally, weve received several hundred dollars in online course fees for the Stateless-U program of online courses. Because those course fees are not a monthly source of income, though, as well as because enrollees can potentially drop classes and ask for their money back during the remainder of the month of July, we’re only counting a portion of that money toward the June expenses; $200.
That, then, is how we arrived at our fundraising goal for this month:
– $300 DONATION INCOME
– $200 COURSE FEES INCOME
$1,320 FUNDRAISING GOAL
The monthly expense breakdown is pretty similar to what youve seen in recent months. Tom Knapp is now our part-time Media Coordinator, so his pay has changed. Although you’ll continue to see the occasional written commentary from him, Tom is now mostly doing promotional work aimed at media placement of our content. Darian Worden is now making more money as well because hes taking up some of the writing slack from Tom writing less. Additionally, Im drawing a $100 monthly stipend now and had $20 in phone expenses this past month. Here’s the expense listing:
Research Associate: Carson $425
News Analyst: Knight $160
News Analyst: Worden $260
Web Administrator: Gogulski $215
Media Coordinator: Knapp $640
Director (Stipend & Expenses): Spangler — $120
TOTAL EXPENSES: $1820
Thats where were at right now.
