A Thank-You to Supporters

The editor and trustees of Abbey Publications, Inc., a nonprofit corporation, are grateful for the support listed below, as well as for numerous smaller amounts. Donations are listed below for Sponsors ($500 or more), Patrons ($100-$499), and Contributors ($25-$99).

So far in the year 2000, we have received $5218 in gifts, which should cover 6% of our expenses this year. One gift was from a trustee, and one was anonymous.

I have decided to work as a volunteer until we recover from the events of 1999. This will not be a hardship if I do not have any large unexpected expenses (knock wood), because I have social security, an IRA, interest income, and $614 monthly rent from the corporation. I am confident we will get through this period somehow, just as we did in 1978-79 after I closed my bindery, and 1997, after I left my job at Brigham Young University.
