The Rootes Archives matching funds opportunity

Buck Trippel of CAT has posted this information on the CAT forum and wanted to share it with TE/AE.
Now is a great time to donate and support the Marque!
I can answer any questions as well.
Thank you, Eric Gibeaut

DONATION MATCHING FUNDS CHALLENGE!

The purchase deposit for the new Archive building has been placed and the drive to raise the last bit of money UK continues.

A major donor has come forward and has offered us this challenge:
Between now and March 31st, he will match your donation to the Archive.
(up to 5-thousand dollars!)
This will double the value of every new contribution!

This building purchase is being done to provide the Archive with long term financial stability. It will reduce Archive expenses by at least 30% and will make it immune to ever increasing rents.

The total price will be about $225 thousand. Currently, our shortfall is slightly less than $40,000.

Donations can be made through PayPal to
matthewollman@rootesarchivecentre.org.uk

Please either add the note "matching challenge donation" or let me know so we can be sure to report and receive the matching funds.

For larger contributions where a US tax donation is desired, the best method I’ve found is to route it through the Anglo American Charitable Foundation, a US 503(c)(3) non-profit tax deductible charity who will deduct a portion of the contribution ($100) and donate the remainder. They have a very efficient system with little penalty for currency exchange. Using this US Charity makes a lot of sense for those making larger donations. PM me for "how to" details.

Feel free contact me with any questions.

Again this year is an Archives matching funds donation opportunity.
Buck Trippel of CAT has posted this information on the CAT forum and wanted to share it with TE/AE.

"An Archive supporter has issued a challenge. He will match donations made between now and the end of May, 2018.

The easiest way to donate is via PayPal to the Archive’s Treasurer, Matt Ollman at matthewollman@rootesarchivecentre.org.uk

for more information about other methods that can be used for donations to the Archive (including Tax deductible gifts) see http://catmbr.org/VB_forum/showthread.php?t=6091

For all donations please add a note saying "matching challenge".

This is a great time for all owners of Rootes cars to step up and really make a difference. The British pound is still quite low against the dollar. Please pitch in and help reduce the Archive's $100,000 debt.

On the CAT forum Buck has created an Archives category with lots of new information as well-

I can help answer any questions you may have.
