From the desk of the CEO:
Dear supporters of Social Services Database and Heartward Bound, we are actively seeking financial donations to allow us to maintain and expand SSD. One hundred % of your $ donation will be applied to funding SSD, as currently all labor is volunteer.
Up until now, SSD has been privately funded by me personally, my partner, and a few volunteers. who also assist in answering specific help inquires.
We are extremely grateful to D. S. for creating a nonprofit corp. pro bono! M. G. C. Purchased business cards and gave $100 toward the mandatory book and seal. D. H. has been active in many aspects of SSD and gave $300 allowing us to reserve space on a server and begin building the new expanded site. Thank you to J.J. for the $30 to file the Georgia Annual Review.
