E Shore U
Dear partners & contributors,
Just a note before Judy & I disappear to Florida for February:
At the risk of repetition:
We have a website: www.EShoreU.org.
*** I have put in a minimal entry & after the initial free month I have signed up for a year of basic service. The host, “GoDaddy””, is bugging me to spend more.
*** I have applied for a 501(c)(3) corporation through “LegalZoom”:
“The University of the Eastern Shore Foundation.“
“Founded to research and promote a 4 year college on ESVA.”
All this is new to me.
The process seems to be progressing through the governmental mills.
The Feds have to issue an EIN, & who knows what else, and wanted 2 more Directors (thanks to Kris & Kathy for stepping forward!).
The VA weenies were fussed about a PO Box for the Registered Agent (me). (I finessed that, a rural skill) We need a VA license and a VA number.
So, some more weeks will pass. In March I hope we can get together & plan. A lunch, maybe at Bizzotto’s? Maybe we’ll do the Officer thing?
I, personally, am low-keying the idea until we have the Foundation sorted and have agreed on a plan.
But if you find someone keen to help, by all means reel them in. And ask for $$. Not that I need the money, but affirmation is important. And money talks. We don’t yet have a bank account or a treasurer, so checks to me.
On that note, I am keeping a ledger which I will be happy to share at out luncheon.
More on that note, our contributions cover expenditures, with a small cushion. Heartfelt thanks for your faith.
