Unit 503 Education Fund
In 2007 our Unit established an agreement with the ACBL Educational Foundation to accept tax deductible donations for use by our unit for educational programs. Thanks to the generosity of our members and friends, funds were readily donated to initiate the fund. Since then many have made donations to continue the Tuesday Morning Lecture Series (75 lectures), purchase books, pamphlets, etc. for our very active Library (700 + volumes), and other educational activities.
We would like your help to perpetuate the Fund through your continued generosity. A donation, whatever size, will do just that! Checks payable to the ACBL Educational Foundation with Unit 503 on the “For” line will be acknowledged for tax purposes. They can be handed to Alan Cummings or placed in his folder at the Bridge Center.
For those who have questions, interested in helping out, and/or developing new programs, please contact Alan at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 650-941-1022 (Home), 650-619-6664 (cell).
Thanks to everyone for making our educational programs a great assist to our members!
