:thanku Thanks Finchy and other last minute donors!

Due to some last minute requests we activated the donate button and now have $42.07 in our rainy day fund. BCAW forum expenses have been paid until 2012 and the domain name until next year so unless something unexpected comes up, we are good for quite a while.

The Donate button is once again deactivated and I am going to lock this thread until....
Thanks you again to all for your generosity!!
:thanku

Hello everyone,
I just wanted to let you know that the BCAW operating fees are again due. As in 2010, we would like to take advantage of discounts and pay all forum and domain name fees for 2 years.

The good news is that with our previous rainy day fund and 2 early generous donations, BCAW only needs approximately $125.00. This will allow us to keep a small amount in the rainy day fund after meeting our obligations.

Instructions for donating through PayPal are in the "How to Donate" thread.
Shortly Skygirlblue will reinstall the Image at the bottom of each page.

I will keep you informed of the "State of the BCAW Bank" and let you know when we have received enough money to pay the bills! Any extra money will be kept in our rainy day fund.
:thanku in advance for your generosity!
This thread is currently unlocked while we are actively seeking donations -- so reply away!!!

If you have any questions, please send me a PM or email me at peregrinefalcon.bcaw@gmail.com

Respectfully,
Gigi
BCAW Banker

The State of the BCAW Bank Report 2012
:sum10:

I am pleased to report that, through the immense generosity of our fabulous BCAW members, we have quickly achieved our goal of receiving enough money to pay our BCAW forum fees and Domain Name fees for 2 years!

It touches me that as soon as the call is out, you special people quickly answer with an amazing spirit of generosity!

This is how it shakes out:
Cash on Hand:
$42.07 in our PayPal rainy day fund to begin with
$394.08 after PP fees [$405.00 before PayPal fees deducted] received from 7/13 to 7/14 [less than 24 hours]
$436.15 now in our PayPal Account

Expenses:
$236.28 = forum fees for 2012 & 2013
$26.85 = Domain Name for 2011, 2012 and 2013 [SBG paid $8.95 from her own pocket in 2011 so we will reimburse her at this time.
$290.13 Total expenses

This will leave us with $146.02 in our rainy day fund. Skygirlblue is investigating discounts for paying for a 3rd year on the forum fees and I will post an update on that as soon as I can.

Again
:thankyou :thankyou :thankyou
for your unending generosity!
:wave
Great Forums Attract Great People!!
:superstar:
At this time consider the BCAW Bank Closed for business!

The State of the BCAW Bank Report 2012
:sum10:
REVISED


Because of the super generosity of the BCAW members, we were able to pay the BCAW forum and Domain Name fees through 2014, allowing us an additional discount. The BCAW account still has a whopping $41.15 in the rainy day fund and if the next 3 years prove to be like the last 2, I don't anticipate we will need it.

A huge thank you to skygirlblue, our fearless BCAW leader who manages the forum administration. Great job SGB!!!


Again

State of the BCAW Bank 2013

Nothing has changed since I last reported in 2012.
We still have a whopping $41.15 in our PayPal account and do not foresee any immediate need for it.

So at this time the BCAW Bank is still closed until 2015 unless there is an unforeseen need before then.

As always, I would like to thank everyone for all your contributions to the forum over the years.
We have so many watchful eyes around the globe and I have been told that some scientists visit here for research purposes.
:sum9: That really makes me proud!! :sum9:


This topic is locked, so if you have any questions, please send me a PM.
Thanks, Gigi

:hi: Everyone!

Guess what! It is that time again to pay for our forum and domain subscriptions.

Shortly we will activate the donate button Image* at the bottom of each page to pay for the forum for another year! Help if you can, but remember donating is optional. PM me if you have any questions!

Look for the button to appear at the bottom of each page. :thanku in advance for your generosity!

* button will be similar to this. Not sure which one skygirlblue will use.

Quick update!

We are just under $15.00 short of our goal to pay BCAW expenses for the next year.

:thanku to those of you who have already donated.

We sure appreciate it!
