2018 Annual Fund Drive
« on: September 05, 2018, 11:50:10 PM »
My first post as I've only been a member of the WW&F Museum for a few weeks.

This morning I received a letter detailing the appeal for donations towards this year's annual capital fund-raising campaign. I reside in the UK, so the most convenient means of donating is over the internet using a credit / debit card, or by Paypal. If I use the 'donate button' on the front page of the WW&F website will my donation find its way into the Annual Fund Drive account?

I ask this as there is no mention in the received paperwork about making payments using plastic cards or Paypal.

Christopher,

Yes, you may use the Donate button - it goes to PayPal - many do it this way.  Please use the comment section to mention that it is for the annual fund drive.

I see your donation, Chris, thanks very much!

Although there are fees involved, PayPal is a great way to donate quickly.  Although I understand there's a way for the donor to pay the fee themselves - but I can't tell you how because I've never seen it.

The Fund Drive has gotten off to a huge start. 139 donations in the first week, with the total being $25,000. That is almost 1/3 of the $80,000 total.

With a lot of the slips are notes that some have written us. Keep up the great work, I love seeing the progress, I wish I lived closer, and many more. I am hoping to scan some of them onto one sheet and post them at the museum, if I have time.
