Friends:This morning our Camp Logs – Public Accountability spreadsheet was updated. A new level of accountability is being introduced.
Within the column marked, “Donor Initials” you will begin to see a four digit number. That number corresponds with a Reference Number found on the attached credit card receipt.
That gives the donor specific information on what their donation paid for. Camps A Rising does have expenses above direct purchase of items. Delivering goods is expensive. We do pay our volunteers expenses when on the road. That would include food, lodging if necessary and fuel. We do not pay for alcoholic beverages. Should you ever see an expenditure for tobacco products, please know that was for offering respectful gifts.
We are only able to provide the donor with rounded up or down dollar amounts. But, we are confident a donor will have a very good idea on where their money is spent.
And lastly, as this new component is brought on line it will take time to develop. In the next few months we believe it will all begin to come together. You will know that 100% of your donations are being used as indicated.
