Re: Belchatow Book of Residents Project MATCHING FUND #poland
Roni S. Liebowitz
When I originally made the announcement below, I neglected to include
information abouthow to make a donation to the Belchatow Book of Residents
Since I first sent the post, another contribution of $100 >from a US donor
has been received, which brings the total to date to $535 of the $2200
needed. With the MATCHING FUND, this gives us $1070 -- that's almost half
of what we need to fund this project.
Remember, the deadline for the MATCHING FUND is Thanksgiving, which is
November 23 for those of you not in the USA.
Contributions to JRI-Poland are tax-deductible for US and Canadian
taxpayers. Please label your donation for the "Belchatow Book of Residents
Project". Credit card (VISA and MasterCard) donations can be telephoned or
faxed to the JRI-Poland treasurer listed below. Please send cash, bank

I am thrilled to announce that a Belchatow Landsmann and the Independent
Belchatower Benevolent Association have generously setup a matching fund for
the Belchatow Book of Residents project. To date, we had $435 of the $2200
needed to fully fund this project. With this MATCHING fund, we now have $870
which leaves $1330 to fully fund this project. This means for EVERY dollar
you donate to this project, the matching fund will donate the same amount.
This is how the MATCHING fund is working. A donor >from the US contributed
$25. The Landsmann and Independent Benevolent Association matched that
amount so it became $50. Two donors >from the US EACH donated $100 which then
became $400!! Wow! A Canadian donated $110 US dollars which turned into $220
and another donor >from Canada contributed $100 US dollars which is now $200
for the project.
This means that we will reach our goal of $2,200 TWICE as fast! Matching
funds will continue UNTIL THANKSGIVING!!! As you can see, we are getting
closer and closer to our final goal of fully funding the Belchatow Book of
Residents project. If you have not yet stepped up make that donation, I
encourage you to make your donation today!! Donations of ANY amount are
greatly appreciated and will be part of the matching fund. Contributors of
no less than $100 will be eligible to obtain a copy of the Belchatow Book of
Residents excel file for their own immediate personal use.
Thank you to Belchatow researchers who have already made donations. We are
off to a great start for reaching our final goal of fully funding the
Belchatow Book of Residents.
All the best,
