We realize that many members have never given a charitable gift of this size and that a $1,000 donation is not possible in one lump sum. Payment plans are available to help you manage your budgeting process (putting aside $92 per month will do it). We ask that members requesting a payment plan, contribute at the Member Plus level of at least $1100, where $100 goes to our operating fund. As long as full payment is received by December 31st, we can tailor a plan to your needs. To discuss, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
