Donations

Post by Starwalker » Mon Jan 16, 2023 4:18 am

I was just wondering how this site is doing financially? I remember a few years back that someone had stepped up to keep the bills paid. I haven’t seen the collection plate passed around to the mailing list since then. As this thought has come to mind a few times lately, I figured I should bring it up. I would certainly like to help out however I can and I’m sure others here feel the same. If anyone was looking to develop superpowers, I hear generosity is a really cool one! So, how does one go about donating to this site? Or if we are doing ok here, are there any sister sites that could use some donations?

Hi star walker,

Thank you for being so generous. I suspect some funds may be needed but as Sandy Barnard now resides in the US and not Australia where I am, I am not fully on top of the situation. So we had best wait to hear from her. The financial structure that existed in Australia had to be dissolved as you cant really operate a company across the waters without some serious difficulties.

Hi Geoff,

Thanks for the response. I kind of feel like I'm stepping on toes here now and I apologize for intruding. Urantia.org has a donate button. Perhaps I'll just toss a few bucks into the blue bin.

All the best,
Jonathan

Dear Jonathan,

Please forgive me...you are not stepping on anybody's toes. Your desire to help touched my heart...But then as I explained in my pm to you...my brain promptly forgot to respond, even after being reminded. That is on me and I am deeply sorry if you feel snubbed or made to feel uncomfortable.

We, unfortunately, do not have a proper system in place to field donations at this time. I wish we did, but that is also on me.
Thank you for your offer to help. I am hoping within the next few months something will be in place where we can accept help, etc...

Your presence and your thoughts expressed on the board are worth as much at this time as any donation. I hope you know how much we value your contribution here and in a wider sense to Light and Life on Urantia.

I pray you are rewarded ten-fold,
with love,
Sandy
