Last year we received two major bequests.
The first - for $100,000 - was announced at a recent Sunday meeting and we have a committee currently looking to advise the board on how to best use it to fulfill our mission. The committee will be taking into consideration the feedback many of you gave to our survey in the fall and will also be reaching out to some members to generate some ideas.
The board has decided that part of other gift - for $5000 - should be used to help make our podcasts more regular and more professional by hiring a Vancouver Meetings Technical Assistant.
This will mean that the content at our Vancouver meetings will be more accessible to our supporters across BC and around the world!
Please feel free to share the job description with anyone you think might be interested.
These gifts show how valuable it can be to include us in your will. Please consider us in your estate plans.
