|KK7M Repeater Endowment
Loren Hole (KK7M) has initiated the start of an endowment fund – the purpose of which is the long-term support of the WA7LAW repeater. The intent behind the endowment is to create a fund that will continue to grow through investment and ongoing donations.
The earnings of the endowment fund will be used to support the WA7LAW repeater – within certain guidelines. The principal of the fund will never be touched – it will remain intact to continue growing and supporting the repeater. You can make a donation to the KK7M Repeater Endowment fund by sending in your tax-deductible contribution to the club treasurer in person or via US mail. At this time we do not have the ability to manage online contributions.
|Storage Trailer project
As a ham radio club we have been very fortunate to acquire a good number of items over the years – primarily through donations of our club members. We have a lot of paper goods, coffee pots, Field Day supplies, safety fencing, portable antenna towers, and many other items.
Unfortunately when you have a lot of things, you have to find a place to put them! Distributing the items for storage throughout club member garages and attics only works so well, and access and inventory management become a significant headache.
In 2012 the club began a process to fix this problem, and we are looking to acquire a “Wells Cargo” style storage trailer. This trailer will allow us to organize and store all of our club assets in one location. Additionally it will make future events easier as well – allowing us to take everything to the site, use it, then take it “home” all in one operation.
There is a committee working out the final details and options for the club to consider, but many members have already started contributing to the effort. You can make a donation to the Storage Trailer project fund by sending in your tax-deductible contribution to the club treasurer in person or via US mail. At this time we do not have the ability to manage online contributions.
|Club Repeater Fund
Separate from the KK7M Repeater Endowment, the SCHC Board of Directors in 2012 chose to set aside funds to also support the club repeater. $1000 was set aside in addition to a requirement that the club add $200 each year to this fund from the general budget.Unlike the KK7M Endowment, the money in this fund has fewer restrictions on its use. This fund can be used to support the repeater in almost any way that is needed – repairs, replacement, system expansion, adding new functionality, etc.
