Our budget includes line items such as salary, insurance, transportation, and communications. Thanks to our committed Board of Directors and network of volunteers, many things that would normally be rather expensive are donated in-kind by supporters who care about our mission (such as this website – it’s completely free!)
We believe that we’ve developed a fiscal budget that covers the requirements of what we need to be effective, and to that end, the majority of that budget is committed to the Executive Director’s salary and resources.
Any donations that exceed our required minimum monthly expenses will be used to fund the next stage of our growth, which would include the procurement of office space, computer equipment, and the hiring of a financial auditor or CPA.
Please note that for amounts greater than $250, please consider making a donation offline with a check, to help us save money on transaction fees!
