able to keep up with our need.
It is time for us to do a reality check. Ideally, monthly income should cover, or come very close to covering, regular monthly expenses. Fundraising events are then used to create a contingency fund so that when there is a small shortfall or an emergency the fund can be used to make up the difference.
It costs $20,000 to run CSC for one month. Over the past few months we have had shortfalls of from $5,000 to $15,000 each month. The size of our shortfalls has depleted our resources to the point where we have nothing left.
In the short term, we have almost $5,000 worth of bills that must be paid within the next week, and over 700 cats and kittens that are depending on us. Long term, we must find a way to rebuild our monthly income to meet our ongoing expenses.
So, today I am not asking you to make a small gift for $5 Friday. I am asking you to help us raise $5,000 to get through the next week. Every penny will help. Every dollar is precious. Every time you share this
post will bring us closer to that goal.
