   We wrote you in June 2014 to say we need your support

We have never asked before.  We are not a membership organization and currently have no income outside of the community donations we receive - whether to attend a workshop, or "just because" you wish to support our work.

We still need your help to move into 2015 with some solvency as we become our own non-profit organization.  Our big Indian Dinner fundraiser didn't raise as much as usual; it happens.
Every penny counts, and you won't find a more frugal organization anywhere.
We appreciate your generosity.

Thank you for making a generous gift!

Please note what your contribution was inspired by, for our records.       
     There is a section where you can note this in an electronic transaction, or go with the old fashioned nice little note with your check. 
     We appreciate your caring and sharing and would like to know what you enjoy about our work, or would like to see improved!


Please mail contributions to:   Local Living Venture, PO Box 736 Canton NY 13617
