Help Wanted: Keep TAC Alive

Message from Richard

 

Hello!  Your Tiger Alumni Center (TAC) needs help.

 

If you like the Tiger Alumni Center (TAC) website, you can help keep it alive as our operating capital is down to $40.   Tac needs donations.  Yours is welcome now.

 

I have been stalling about asking for help.  First, I just don’t like doing so (Not at all!!).  Secondly, I have not needed to do so until recently. (See below.)

I am pleased that we’re coming up on TAC’s fifth birthday of free service to our members this coming September 15th.   During these five years, I asked for help once before.  At the time I think we had around 600 members and the site still seemed new to me.  I thought the members would feel the same.   But August, 2012, they, by voting with their money, made their voice clear:  We want TAC!  To read about that 2012 fund drive, click on the following link:

Now I come to you members again.   To know our needs, the related expenses and the plans, please read on.        

 

Expenses for TAC:

  • Contract with Classcreators: One Year:  $200 (three-years, $280)
  • ClassNames.net for web address: One-year, $19 (three years, $58)
  • Frames for Lifetime Achievement Awards: One year: $80 (three years: $240)
  • Correspondence (thank-you, birthday, sympathy): One year: 100 cards mailed at $2 each plus postage at $10 for 20 stamps: $250.   (Three years: $750)
  • Certificate Paper for Events:  One year $25.

 

Current Account Balance: $90

                (Note: Account min. required: $50; $40 usable funds)

 

DRIVE PLANS

  • ONE YEAR: Single Year Need Level  --  Goal Total:  $575

  • MIXED: Economy Level  --  Funds a three-year contract with Classcreators and includes money for single year expenses  -- Goal Total: $655  

  • THREE YEAR PLAN:  Expenses for  3 Years --  Total of $1,403

RW Note:  I am really hoping we reach the funding for three years.  That would be wonderful!   Next best would be the second level, Mixed.  With that, I could take advantage of Classcreators.com's offer of a three-year contract for the additional sum of $80 and still have funding for some other expenses for a year.  Thanks to you members!

All you have to do is mail a check to Richard Williams

 

The Address:

Your Check:

In the note space, write  Helping TAC or “Website Operations.” 

 

The Record:

I will deposit your check in my “TAC” account in my local bank.  I will mail you a ‘thank-you’ card by the end of the drive, the end of June, 2015.  To repeat, you get no tax credit for supporting your Tiger Alumni Center as it is, in essence, a website.  TAC has NO 501c3.  You are giving a gift to me and trusting me to use it to keep TAC alive for the immediate future and maybe, hopefully, up to three years.

If the name (s) on the check is (are) not the same as what we have in our data base (what you see on your page at TAC), I encourage you to email me reporting your gift and allowing us to post your name and your class year in one of the above categories.  

Do know that we like all members to see your name and that of your class year as such publicity encourages more donations.  But, do know if you request anonymity, we will respect your wish and not use your name (but placing a notice of an anonymous gift stating only your class year in the appropriate category.  Again, I will email you, thanking you.

Thank you!
