Dear Friends

Many people think "non-profit" implies "free services."  While this may be
true for some nonprofits receiving government or private grants, not all non-profits get grants. For example, at Aikido of San Luis Obispo/Safe-SLO, which is a small, entirely volunteer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we rely on three non-grant resources to fund our services: (1) dedicated volunteerism from teachers (2) program fees (3) charitable donations. Our annual fund drive for $10,000 in charitable donations takes place at this time each year.  We ask everyone who values the presence of our empowering programs and unique training center in this community to help provide these necessary funds. If you are unable to donate money, you can volunteer time: share your enthusiasm for our mission with a family member, friend, colleague or business owner who can make a year-end contribution to a worthy recipient. Having volunteered 40 hours a week in 2011, I can personally say Aikido/Safe-SLO is a worthy recipient. It is my belief in the value of our mission that has inspired me to teach Aikido classes on a volunteer basis for the past 24 years. Your contribution to our year-end fund drive will directly support the continued presence of our programs and wonderful training center in 2012--the year we celebrate our 25th Anniversary!
