We are holding steady at about 15 to 20 people at every mass. Our weekly collections are averaging about $225 each week. On average, we are spending about $250 each week, but our actual expenses would be significantly higher except for the very generous donation of time by several of our presides and musicians.

The Belle Fund was named in honor of Mark J's mother, Belle, who left D/NoVA money to help other D/USA chapters. The D/NoVA Board later made the Belle Fund the source of all contributions from D/NoVA to others. In 2015, the Board decided to dedicate the money raised at our Anniversary Dinner to the Belle Fund rather than to transfer money from the General Fund to the Belle Fund. Additional restricted contributions were made to the Belle Fund by individuals including donations made in connection with our collection for the animal shelters in the area ($500). The Board authorized an additional restricted transfer from the General Fund to the Belle Fund of $250 for the animal shelters.

So far in 2015, the Board has authorized payments from The Belle Fund as follows:

WWC Walk to End AIDS (with DW)............................ 250.00

Dignity USA 2015 Convention Ad.............................. 250.00

Gifts IHO Joe Hennessy and Bob Fagan for

their 40th Anniversary for their favorite charity......... 500.00

Equally Blessed for the World Meeting of Families.. 250.00

Arlington Animal Shelter...............................................375.00

Alexandria Animal Shelter.......................................... 375.00

TOTAL BELLE FUND EXPENSES................. $2,000.00

At the suggestion of Anje B., a previous Board authorized the establishment of Anje's Purse to provide a temporary bridge loan to members of our community who are experiencing financial difficulties. The Board initially funded this with $2500, and additional contributions and transfers from the General Fund have provided funds for Anje's Purse. We have made loans and received repayment of those loans. In accord with the criteria established by the Board in 2011, loans in the amount of $4,500 are currently outstanding.

Our community could not continue without the countless hours of time freely contributed by our members. Just as volunteering is a personal decision, so is financial support for our community based on each person’s financial circumstances. Some will be able to give more and others less. On average, if each of the 15 to 20 people attending mass could contribute $15 to $20 per week, we would be able to cover our expenses and not deplete our resources.

May God continue to bless us and all who continue to support our community with your contributions of time and talent and treasure.
