Subject: [BackBayAstro] Scholarship fund donations
Because of the COVID-19 cancellations this year of all our Boardwalk Astronomy events, our scholarship fund is very low. We normally get between $1000 and 1250 from Virginia Beach events, but got nothing this year.
I suggested that if every member of our 100+ club contributes $10, we could add $1000 or more to replenish the scholarship fund, AND, it would be tax-deductible, if you itemize deductions. Now is the time to get that deduction, before the end of the year.
I have decided to donate $10 a month to the scholarship fund, so that will help a little bit. Who wants to join me?
