    automatically renewed or assumed and will be evaluated each year.

We understand that all causes are likely worthy of a donation but due to the volume of
requests, we must limit our contributions and we communicate via email only. You should expect to receive a mailed donation or email letter of denial within 4 weeks of your request. Only requests that meet the above criteria will be considered by our committee and we ask that you do not follow up on your request.

Thank you for understanding and please accept our sincere wishes for a successful event.
