Fundraising Campaign 2018-2019

The Association’s financial situation

Since the Fall of 2015, the board of directors has been concerned with the decrease in the number of dues paying members. After months of discussions, and having analysed different options during their July 31st, 2017 meeting, the directors decided go forward with a complete remake of the Association’s website, to focus our recruitment efforts on the younger generations of descendants of our common ancestors, Mathurin Chabot and Marie Mésangé, and to create a cash reserve to secure the finances of the Association for the next few years. In the short term, the Association needs a cash influx that goes beyond what membership dues can supply and the board has decided to launch a fundraising campaign as detailed below.

NEW FUND RAISING GOAL: 5,000$

The first part of the 2018-2019 fund raising campaign is ongoing, and will continue until we reach our 5,000$ objective, but the second part using the La Ruche crowdfunding platform is cancelled.

We will devote our attention on reaching the 5,000$ objective with our members, non-member persons, businesses and organizations.

All donations of CDN 5$ and over are welcome.
