My Dear Sangha,
Fundraising has always been an important part of our work here at Fire of Truth and as a small not for profit organization, we need to sustain with our efforts all year in a variety of ways. So far, through your generous contributions, our twice-yearly campaigns have been the most successful in providing the necessary funds for extra projects and to help us to with our ongoing expenses
Since the challenges of my health have limited my ability to teach in person and travel we have been able to offer a steady schedule of teleconference programs
that has reached an even wider audience of students
, and we have successfully extended our reach as well. It is through your donations and with your ongoing help that this deeply needed in the world work, can continue.
We have not always been able to meet our fundraising goals so, as we reach out to ask for your help once again, we also hope to inspire a whole new group to support us so that we can build a more stronger fundraising foundation. Please read more in Lee’s letter about the goals we have for this year.
Thanks to you, we have just completed a beautiful upgrade
of our website which I hope that you will visit at www.neelam.org
. We have also been able to pay for administrative support and continue to work on our book project as well.
We are also excited to let you know that this year a group of donors have offered a matching fund
for this campaign in the amount of $3000
which I am very, very grateful for. That means that, if we reach that goal, every dollar that you donate
up to this amount will show up as two dollars
for us here at Fire of Truth.
As I sit with students in a variety of programs, I am constantly amazed by the richness and the profound impact and beauty of our meeting and how the power and simplicity of inquiry provides a true and lasting transformation. And it is the ongoing and always freshly available invitation for Awakening and Freedom that keeps me and you showing up time and again and that, with your support for this work, is what helps me to continue.
