Good News, Bad News
BY DENNIS BROOKS,
In this issue of the PEGG, we once again acknowledge the contribution of our many donors to the APEGGA Education Foundation (see full-page acknowledgement on Page 11). The good news is that we continue to show year over year growth as evidenced in the accompanying chart. The information for 2001 is preliminary and doesn't cover the whole year, but it indicates that the trends continue: good year-over-year growth in donations, and modest increases in the number of donors and average amount of a donation.

I think the work of our Education Foundation Board made up of volunteers
is also good news. We have advanced the Millenium Scholarship to the point
where we will be able to announce a recipient for this year and at an
amount of $1,500, which is more than first thought possible. We have increased
our exposure by articles in the PEGG and on the APEGGA website.
On our APEGGA website tab, we have a place for "Opinions Wanted".
The response to our questions has been disappointingly small so far, but
we need feedback from you to help us deal with some controversial issues
such as recognition of donors, and use of pledge systems. We would also
like to know about use of affinity cards, casinos as fundraisers, and
functioning of the Foundation and will put these in the column if we can
get a better response. Give us your feedback! I will update response to
our need for donations, time, and ideas in remaining columns this year.
