© Nancy Newman 2009Thank you for considering a donation to  the Assembly. Your kind contributions help keep us afloat, help maintain the facilities, help us to provide the terrific programming you love, and help continue our 90+ years of excellence.

At our 2013 Annual Meeting, the membership voted to substantially increase our loan from Convention to pay for the new metal roof on the Main Building. This huge project was completed that December, but our loan has now more than doubled, so your donations are needed even more.

At the 1/5/13 mid-winter Board of Directors meeting, FNCA treasurer Bob Perry reported that in order to be on a more firm financial footing, we should really aim at increasing donations to $15,000 a year. Donations have been averaging about $10,000 a year, so this new goal represents a 50% increase in giving from individuals and organizations. Unfortunately, there was relatively little increase in donations that year. So, reaching our goal this year will depend on increased giving from regular benefactors as well as bringing in new donors at every giving level.

Monthly Giving

Our treasurer and Board are especially looking to increase monthly donations — they are the gift that keeps giving, and are just so easy to "set and forget!" It is a HUGE boost for our cash flow, especially during off months when the Assembly's income is at its lowest ebb but our financial obligations keep coming.

Here's some more perspective: That $1,418 shortfall mentioned in the previous section represents 2 members signing up for monthly donations of $60, or 4 members signing up for $30 a month, 6 signing up for $20, 8 at $15, 12 at $10, or 24 members signing up for $5 a month.

Would you like to add $1,200 a year to the Assembly's budget? Consider this: If you took $5 a week out of your wallet or purse every week, how much would you miss it? Not that much, right? It's only $20 a month. Could you convince 4 other of your camp friends that they wouldn't really miss it that much either? All it takes is 5 members signing up to donate $20 a month, and together you will collectively donate $1,200 to the good old FNCA each year!

And if $20 a month is too much, gather 9 others to each donate $10 a month with you and your cumulative donations will also be over $1,000 a year!

One-time donations of all sizes are, of course, always welcome, but please keep in mind that small monthly giving amounts are just as welcome and also add significantly to our bottom line.

Adopt a Loan Payment

Lifelong member Tina (Guiu) Wood suggested that a simple way to pay down our loan from Convention would be if 12 people a year agreed to each donate one of the $446 monthly loan payments. That may seem like a lot, but to put it in a bit of perspective: it's $8.58 a week or $37.17 a month! Can you afford that?

  $25 = Trash and dump fees for the whole session.
  $30 = One breakfast and lunch for the whole camp.
