Good News: The Tripawds Foundation Board of Directors held their first meeting of 2019 and determined the organization has adequate cash reserves for the coming Fiscal Year – thanks to your generous support!
Not So Good News: In order to meet these budgeted numbers, the Board agreed to postpone restoring Tripawds ASAP Fund reimbursements to 2x monthly until June, 2019.
“We had hoped to start giving out two ASAP grants each month again, but the funds just aren’t there.”~ Jim Nelson, President
Rather than start the fund back up to twice monthly, and risk having to cut back the program again, the Board determined the need to wait until June before continuing to offer two ASAP grants per month.
More Good News: The Tripawds Foundation only needs a $2400 contribution dedicated for the ASAP Fund to once again start offering two veterinary amputation surgery reimbursement grants each month. Fans and followers may remember how the Tripawds ASAP Fund was cut in half during the summer of 2018 due to a lack in fundraising.
