I hate to use the word "fundraiser" ... for it makes me think of cookies and ice cream sales back in middle school ... but there are options. We just have to be creative.

Which are?

IMHO I think while all this is nice we should focus on our studies and advancement in the church. When there are more Knights and Clergy a project like this can be supported. Until then I think the Church needs to grow.

At some point in my studies I would be pleased to start pulling together a group in my area. Just not yet. I have more work to do here first.

There are those who do better in a "group environment" / study groups. I'm such a beast. I'd would love have a discussion group to meet every week. And there, there could be bowling. :)

I know that there were a few times in my life when I felt I needed to get away from everything so I could find what the Force was trying to get me to see. Sometimes, we cant cut through all the chatter that comes along with normal day to day life in modern society.

There have also been times when I have infact left everything behind, searching for what was calling me. And in no way did either time turn out like I had originally planned (most things don't), but without a doubt, I learned tremendously about all sorts of things. I came back to my society 'wiser' about the greater picture of life in general as well as my own personal life.

It was not the most perfect of scenarios when I left, and I took a lot of risks that would not have been necessary if there was actually a "place" for such learning, such as a Jedi temple.

GTG,
Matt

As of now we have enough money to keep this site going for another month.

Local congregations (not this Council) are in charge of building or renting according to their particular needs.

Does anyone know what's up with the Jedi Rescource Center ? I don't see anything listed for this year.

What do you need annually to keep the doors open?

Not counting other expenses the server lease is $900 US per year. We're paying this on monthly installments.

We're working on the 2012 Annual Report now and it should be available soon.

It's a bit lower now that we don't pay tax anymore :P

Is the "DONATE" button the only way we can help? Is there anything that can be done to help?
