ROC The Day: Another Huge Success!

Thanks once again to the generosity of our dedicated falcon supporters, we raised over $2,300 yesterday, including a $1,000 bonus for the outstanding teamwork demonstrated by those who stayed up late to make their pledges at just the right time. Well done, folks!

ROC the Day officials will send us a financial statement and donor list sometime in the next few weeks, at which point we will know who to thank individually. Until then, thank you to everyone who donated. Your contributions will be used to fund Rfalconcam operations and improvements throughout 2018.

    Excellent. Do you have an idea how this compares to previous ROC the Day actions by rfalconcam fans? Are we getting better, slipping? Is what we need to keep up the cameras coming in from this fundraiser?

    The $1,304 we received in donations yesterday is the highest since 2013. It’s about $100 more than our average from 2014-2016.

    ROC The Day is by far our biggest source of funds (counting the additional $1,000 bonus) and supports normal operations and repairs. Equipment upgrades and special repairs are partially covered by Roc The Day. Other items like educational expenses are not covered. Reserves and additional donations are used for these.

    I don’t have the budget data available. I’m sure it will be discussed at the next executive committee meeting.

    Thank-you. You have given me enough to go on, Shaky. If donations keep growing from year to year things look bright for the future of cameras and website (the falcons will keep coming, no matter how much we donate;-).
