Letter: Dear friends, I need donations and help for VHL Canada and its support program in Canada to continue...
At minimum, we need to cover $900, our commitment for registration fees for the Walk for VHL@STWM; however, when you register through us, it comes back and we get credit for it! It's $40 for the 5K VHL walk. Our goal this year is $1500... e.g. 60 people at $25 each.
Also see "Ways to give" page for info and specific examples. We have a relatively modest budget which includes website, mailbox, etc. E.g. in a way I will also absolutely get back cost for long distance phone and internet plans if we have enough revenue.
Last year, we made about $500 at the time of the Walk and an additional $1000 by December.
The actual marathon is taken care of by Scotiabank, so we get to focus just on awareness and fundraising! Donations online are free, courtesy of Scotiabank, so everything goes to VHL Canada! Official income tax receipts are issued for donation minimum of $20.
