STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"One of the most wonderful aspects of our new vision is that once the loan to The Foundation is repaid we have the money available to loan to others.  In this way, every dollar we receive is recycled, which makes the donations The Foundation receives especially attractive to our donors."
