Funding Needs

Our annual budget is 189,000. Our funds are the lowest in the past ten years due to the economy some of the foundations who had been supporting us have been unable to award any grants in the last couple of years and two have folded. For our next fiscal year we have 62,000 in funding committed which leaves 127,000 to raise to met our budget requirements.
