“These are the times that try men’s souls.” – Thomas Paine
All of us, probably, are feeling worried about this crisis: how to stay safe, how long it will last, and how bad it will be. Meanwhile, on March 1st we started our spring canvass for BUF which is very important for BUF’s ability to support us as a community, now and in the future.
If you have not yet pledged, if there is any way that you can do so in the next week or so, we need to hear from you.
This is where we stand as of March 24:
- We have 40% of the pledge cards returned (91 of an expected 227)
- We have reached 43% of our pledge goal ($159,582 of the needed $364,000)
Most likely, your canvasser has reached out to you by now. Please return their call or email. Reach out to them. Let’s stay connected. We are aiming for April 5 to wrap up the pledge card business.
Looking forward to next year entails a lot of uncertainty right now. Remember that this pledge you are making will not start until July.
