It is just a month ago when I sent you a message saying that the Foundation corpus had reached the important $1million milestone.
I would now like our Ambassadors to be the first to know that this month we have received two quite separate $100,000 donations.
I was able to announce at the Ambassador Happy Hour on March 20th that a couple well known to most of you have made our largest single donation to give a wonderful start towards our next milestone.
And now just a week later, another $100,000 has arrived from a Buderim resident wishing to remain anonymous.
Naturally I thank these donors. However the whole Buderim Community deserves thanks for the way it has embraced and supported the Community Foundation concept. Surely this is a huge vote of confidence in the efforts of all those involved including the board, committees and of course, our Ambassadors.
As we enter what is historically our busiest giving time, you might like to think of ways you can help to keep this extraordinary momentum going.
While large donations are important to us, so too are very modest ones. Please don’t be put off by the size of the two donations I’ve mentioned above. Every donation, regardless of the amount is highly valued and regular donors are our life blood.
If you have not donated to the Buderim Foundation before and maybe have some questions…please let me know and I will arrange for a member of our Fund Development Committee to be in touch.
Let’s keep it going!
