The Board of Directors would like to express its gratitude for the generosity of the good people of the SCA. We know many of you are holding fund-raisers and seeking ways to donate to the Society, thank you. We deeply appreciate all your efforts. We have had many e-mails, telephone calls and messages asking about donations. Here are some guidelines for donating or sending money to SCA Inc.
You are free to hold fundraisers or make personal donations, and the SCA deeply appreciates your efforts and your support of our shared organization. We would suggest that you make any such donations directly to your Kingdom to help it pay the amount it will be required to contribute as its part of the SCA’s obligations in the settlement. Some Kingdoms have organized ACCEPS “event” to accept donations, so if it is more convenient for you to donate online, check the ACCEPS site to see if your Kingdom has created a donation “event.” Any donations made through ACCEPS will go to the Kingdom.
If you choose, you may also send a donation directly to the corporation, and it will be gratefully accepted as a general donation toward the SCA’s operating expenses. The corporate office is working on a Paypal account and will add a button to the SCA’s website once the account is established. Any donations sent directly to the corporate office or through the corporate Paypal account will not be counted toward your Kingdom’s obligation.
We also encourage the membership to opt out of paper newsletters as soon as possible because it reduces the amount of operating expenses the SCA must pay. See your Kingdom newsletter or www.sca.org for more information on how to opt out of paper newsletters. You will soon have access to the electronic version of all the Kingdom’s newsletters!
We encourage our members to use one of these methods or to send a check directly to your Kingdom Exchequer or the SCA’s corporate office in Milpitas to ensure your donation is received and put to its intended use. Thank you all again for your support of our wonderful Society!
