Page history last edited by Steve 10 years, 4 months ago

Peace Train operates on donations.  There are no salaried / paid employees - we are all volunteers.  Part of our appeal to donors is that 100% of donations during organized events go to the identifies organizations.   Operating donations are used to keep our web site active, our domain name paid for, our US Postal Box, and any ancillary costs for material needs.


Update January 8, 2011


December, 2010:  US $490.00 was sent to the Self-Employed Women's Association (Mumbai, India), SafePassage.org (US office) for Guatemala, and to UMUSEKE in Kigali, Rwanda.  For SafePassage, they have a US website and we used our business account VISA card to make that donation.  For SEWA and UMUSEKE there were wire transfers to bank accounts.  Each wire transfer cost US $60.00 (bank fee) and so the total usable donation to those two organizations was US $430.00.


The business bank account at Suntrust was converted to a simple savings account so as to avoid monthly charges (for business accounts holding less than US $1,000.00).  Current balance in the account is around US $30.00.
