Anglicans of Second Life Treasury Update


Tithe Sixpence

Our Treasurer, Tithe Sixpence

First off, many apologies for the lack of updates in the past few months.  RL and all that…  Anyway, I thought this would be a good time to give an overview of the AoSL financial situation, as well as a picture of where things are at present.

I have updated the Financial Support page on this blog.  In it, I have outlined our need for donations, what our current budget is and how it was arrived at, and ways you can lend your support.  I have also simplified the Paypal donation option, so you can now make a one time payment to help support our ministry, in any amount that works for you!

As of the end of October 2011 we have raised 24% of our yearly goal amount.  Since our next tier payment will be due in May 2012, we are halfway through the current donation cycle.  Simply put, we are at the 50% time point, but only at the 24% donation point.

I am confident that we can meet our budget goals by the time our next tier payment is due, but we can’t do it without your help!  We deeply appreciate any donation you are able to make, no matter how small.  We know from your many words of support that our ministry is a meaningful part of many of your lives, and our goal is to do everything in our power to help ensure our ability to continue our SL ministry to you.

Thank you for all of the support you have shown us in many ways.  If you are in a position to help us financially, that is great!  But if you are not, please know that you are no less welcome, and that you contribute to our ministry simply by being part of it!  And, if you have any ideas about how we might boost our fundraising efforts, we would love to hear from you!

Thanks for reading this, and I hope to see you in-world soon!

  1. Any chance of getting financial information newer than 2011? Thanks!

    • Sorry, Mimsey. As we have no treasurer at the moment, I am dealing with things and obviously not very well! We have paid our tier each year with nothing much left over each time. Donations are low this year so far. For instance, in August we only raised 4% of what we need as a monthly sum. Obviously we cannot continue in that way for very long. Our next payment of tier is due in May 2018. Our expenses are modest. We must pay our tier ($1770 US per annum) and we use a small amount of money so that Ana can occasionally buy things for the sim. The costs of an upgraded blog here and for our project management software are paid for directly as a donation. No one on the leadership team is paid any money for what they do. We are all volunteers.
