|SUBJECT ||Subject: [hangout] NYLXS: Non-profit Status
Just a point and consideration:
NYLXS is a legal non-profit and if folks are considering making donations
to useful charities, we would be honored and put to good use any donationations
folks can make.
I don't think I need to list all the work NYLXS has made over the last 3 plus
years, and even over the last few months. Many members have made sizable
personal contributions, and the NYLXS balence sheet is rightfully low :)
We don't sit on money or waste is by hiring staff, but put dollars directly
to work in educational programs and community support. Anyone who would
like to make an end of year donation, please make a check payable to:
and you can send it to:
1600 East 17th Street
Brooklyn, NY 11230
NYLXS has been protective of its independence in activity and action, and as a
result, we are the ***ONLY*** local Free Software organization with our own
education center, library, independent servers, and the hardest working group
A donation of a $100.00 for folks who can afford it can allow us to continue to
float our expenses over the coming year.
PS - For those who still owe their membership dues, this would be a good time
to settle accounts with Peter Siegel.
