General Operating Funds
We have a fairly simple budgeting process here at the Patuxent Lapidary Guild, Inc. Standard operating expenses (rent, utilities, shop supply costs under a specified amount, etc.) are preapproved, and any nonstandard expenditures (such as those for special events) or new obligations (like a recurring subscription), are approved during Board meetings with a majority vote.
Your support, simply put, allows us to continue operating our shop where we teach, share, and create.
We are all experiencing hardships from the current pandemic, and we certainly appreciate your support!
This type of "donation" is for any miscellaneous costs or fees due to the guild. Examples include paying for auction winnings, sending the 20% finder's fee for a guild-referred commission, etc.
Please be sure to make a note in the comment field saying why you are submitting this payment!
