Before launching into this report I need to bring you a last minute news bulletin. One of our Foresight Senior Associates has stepped forward to make a challenge grant. This individual is prepared to provide a $5000 matching grant for every ten new Senior Associates Foresight can obtain between now and the end of January, up to a $40,000 maximum. This matching will also apply to any one-time donation of cash or stock of $100 or more before that date. It will also apply to upgrades on any Senior Associate memberships that occur in that period.
This means for every new Foresight Senior Associate dollar donated between now and the end of January, the organization will get two more immediately. Foresight is quite excited about this, and I encourage those of you who are able to take advantage of this opportunity to make your new donation dollars go three times as far as they otherwise would.
This is also a great excuse to rope in those pals of yours who have been goofing off and not getting their paperwork in to become Senior Associates. We will of course be hosting news updates on our progress toward this goal on our web site. We'll even have countdowns to show how many more we need to trigger the next matching grant.
... PS. Due to the matching grant, now is the time to act, if you've been considering upgrading your senior associate membership or pulling a friend into the program. Those of your who have made it big through a startup might consider donating stock--I understand this results in a big tax savings over donations of cash. Remember the deadline is January 31. And of course for those of you looking for a tax deduction in 1996, that deadline is December 31. Thanks again.
