We’ve been having trouble accepting donations through an online payment system because we aren’t our own non-profit organization and don’t have an EIN number for the application. Fortunately, the Mennonite Church has an online giving site and they graciously offered to accept online payments for us and then transfer the payments over to our account with Everence. They will only be charging enough to cover the credit card fee, so they’re helping us out a lot.
So we’re happy to announce that we can now accept your donations online. I donated yesterday to try it out and it worked perfectly. It’s perfect timing as we need to raise the funds to give our first scholarship this fall. We’ll be accepting applications soon and we’re hoping to have an idea of how much the scholarship will be before we release the application details.
Thank you very much for your donation and for your help in spreading the word. It’s graduation season and that sense of achievement is in the air. That feeling should be accessible to everyone who wants it, not just those who can afford it. I’m so grateful for those people who encouraged me along the way and I hope together we can offer the same support to others who need it.
