30/30 Campaign Recap
Sustainability for the Endowment Fund

After the 2023 30 days Campaign wrapped up May 18th many members had made generous contributions to the Chapter's Outreach and Education Endowment Fund.  The Campaign proceeds of $14,500 have been added to the $11,600 previously available from the Mosher bequest and the $30,000 in seed money provided by a key member benefactor.  The Fund rose to $56,100 and after a $1,250 distribution for 2023 the Fund stands at $54,850.  On this foundation, your Board of Managers hopes to build and to expand outreach and education to advance our shared patriotic, historical, and education objectives long into the future.  The Board expresses sincere thanks to the many members who have made this great leap for the Chapter possible.
