The editor and trustees of Abbey Publications, Inc., want to express appreciation for support received from the people and organizations listed below, and from many kind people who have sent in smaller donations or helped us in other ways throughout the year. So far this year $2959 has been received, of which $800 was spent on a fax machine in September to put us in better touch with readers and information sources. For the saw reason, a second line was added to our telephone service so that two people can use the telephone at the same time (we use the telephone a lot, both for gathering information and answering calls for information). The rest of the donated total was spent on operating expenses and was put in savings to build up a fund for compensating an editorial assistant.
All donations are considered as going to Abbey Publications (thus contributing to both the Abbey Newsletter and the Alkaline Paper Advocate). Donors are classified as Benefactors ($1000+), Sponsors ($500+), Patrons ($100+), and Contributors ($25+).
