Starting a Museum, # 3
We got a new logo
We did not get charitable status by the CRA (Canadian Revenue Agency). But the 4 page letter explaining why we were not approved, taught us something. We have withdrawn the application and can apply again at the right time.
We are carrying on as a non-profit Society and are now trying to find out what the land we need will cost. We are initially planning for a 6000sq. ft. steel building that can be expanded to 15000sq.ft. We will off course also need space on the property for parking and access to the back of the building where the workshop will be situated.
We are talking to an airport in the Vancouver area about land and will have more about this in our next blog.
We have been offered a B-727 cockpit, pending approval from the owner. To get that and the other cockpit (Beechcraft King Air 100) ,transported to Vancouver will cost money and that is one thing we are a little short on. Last bank statement $ 70.00 in the bank.
This is not a fundraising appeal, but we need to address it at our next board meeting. We have sold 2 aviation photo books making $ 15.00 on each. It will take a lot of book sales to get transport money for our cockpits.
We are planning on selling memberships for $ 25.00/year but as we have very little to show, it could be hard to convince people to become members at this point.
We need two more board members to bring the board to 7 members…. Anybody interested that lives in the Vancouver Area ? Let us know
We have compiled a list of Fortune 500 companies that we will start bugging for money, equipment etc. within the next month. Good that I have unlimited long distance calling in my bundle.
We will carry on with the museum and one day we will have the grand opening and you are invited.. if you are a member.
Watch for our next blog.
