Year to date, we have raised 67% of our budgeted contribution revenue. Nobody likes to come up short at the end of a budget cycle. To move NGFM to stop relying on money from the Sampson bequest, which has an end date, we set a goal of increasing our contribution income by 10% in 2020. To close out the year properly, we need to raise $77,000. We ask our members and attenders to consider making a gift to NGFM before December 31, 2020. We know this has been a challenging year financially for a lot of people. We are asking members and attenders to look into their financial circumstances and help us close this gap.
