I suppose most of you have seen some of the changes at the NCCPN site. There are Google ads and a new Donation Thermometer. I feel uncomfortable asking for money from anyone without working for it. I find myself in the position now of asking for donations and advocating using the Google ads. Any money Donated under the Donation Thermometer along with any proceeds from the Google ads will be used to maintain our NCCPN site. The money is deposited in a special new PayPal account that my board members will be able to access to be sure the proceeds are posted in a timely manner on a financial summary page soon to be set up. All income from the Donation Thermometer + the Google ads + private donations will be posted. Bills Paid will also be listed so you know what your money is doing. Website self support is our first goal. I would like to be able to run our site on our donations and proceeds from Google. Any money over and above the needed monthly fees for the site will be deposited and accounted for on the financial summary page. If we reach the point of covering any upcoming internet fees for the site we will consider possible site upgrades and /or a BILL BOARD!!! I will make sure all finances are open to the members/public. I will have others looking over my shoulder watching for you. But then You could just check it out yourself right on site.
