Dear Supporting Member:
We are glad that you consider the Center for Sacred Sciences to be a valuable organization, and we are grateful that you have decided to become a supporting member. The Center for Sacred Sciences is a nonprofit corporation under the laws of the State of Oregon; and an IRS tax-exempt 501(c)(3) church. This means that your donations and supporting membership dues are tax deductible to the full extent allowable by law.
Monthly dues pledged by supporting members constitute our major source of income and help us accurately plan our yearly budget. The Center's fiscal year runs from September 1 through August 31 of the following year. Every Fall the Center's board of directors reviews the financial report for the previous year, given by the Treasurer, and draws up a budget for the coming year. A summary of the Center's income and expenses is available on our website. The full report is also available for inspection by any supporting member in good standing. To arrange for such an inspection, please contact me.
Because the Center depends on its members' financial support, fulfillment of your pledge commitment is required in order to maintain your supporting membership status. If your financial situation changes during the year and you need to revise your pledge, please inform me. You will also have an opportunity to revise your pledge every September when you renew your membership, using the member pledge form.
Once again, thank you for your support. We hope you continue to regard the Center as an organization worthy of your support. If you have any further questions or comments feel free to contact anyone on our board of directors.
Jennifer W. Knight
