From the Treasurer

Everyone who made a donation to TEMV in 2017 should have received a letter which included the total amount that is tax deductible. The same letter included the amount you pledged for the 2017-2018 Fiscal Year and how much of that pledge is still outstanding. Please send your final pledge payment and donations for the current Fiscal Year by April 30, 2018, when the year ends. If you did not receive the letter or have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out. You may also pay via PayPal on our website. (Note that PayPal takes a 2.2% + $0.30 per transaction fee.)

Thank you for your continued support of TEMV,
