Subject: Follow up to fundraising request for conclusion project
In February we issued our last fundraising letter request for the Scottish Portal project. As you recall, our target was to raise the last $8000.00 needed to finish the project. I am happy to advise we only need to raise $3000.00 to finish off the project. That means our stakeholders were very generous and sent in $5000.00 between February and August of this year. We are very grateful for those donations and we appreciate every amount you gave towards the project. If you have not received your receipt for your donation, please contact us and let us know. We can be reached by any of the following below.
Unfortunately, we do require the last $3000.00 to bring the site live for November 25th. We are asking for your help to raise the last $3000.00 of the $8000.00. In order to go live with the site by November 25th we require the $3000.00 by October 15, 2014 at the latest in order to finish the work and to meet the deadline.
You have been so helpful and supportive to date, we hope you will not let us down now that we are so close to the finish ( Two months to go live). Once again, we can issue tax receipts for your donation.
1. Donate. First and foremost, funding the project is at the top of our list. You can donate in the following amounts:
Donating is easy, simply send your cheque - made payable to Associates of the Provincial Archives and by noting on the cheque in the notes section “Scottish Portal Fund” you will be eligible for a charitable tax receipt. In recognition of your donation, you will be listed on the Website as supporter of the NB Scottish Portal.
2. Share information about the importance of this project with your friends and family. We need to ensure that we preserve our history and the story of the Scots in New Brunswick.
Please remember the NB Scottish Portal, once completed, will finally tell the story of the Scots who came to New Brunswick, settled here and advanced the Province to a vibrant and civilized community. The story of the Scots has never been told in its entirety and we must ensure that our forbearers’ efforts are included in New Brunswick’s history.
Again, we need your help to make this project is a success. Donate today.
I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely,
Daniel Taylor, Chair,
New Brunswick Scottish Portal Advisory Committee
