With six weeks remaining in this year’s Anglican Journal Appeal, we are currently at 75% of our budgeted revenue. Journal business manager Larry Gee has indicated that without this revenue, drastic changes may have to be made to the makeup of the newspaper. “Our revenue sources are very limited. We can’t increase sales like other organizations,” said Mr. Gee. Last year, our appeal reached an all-time high of $638,000 due in part to the celebration of our 130th anniversary. Mr. Gee said that this year’s target of $560,000 was realistic based on last year’s figures and response since 2000. Mr. Gee said that the results of the Appeal “not only affect the Journal but the diocesan newspapers that share equally in net proceeds.”
Mr. Gee said “reminder notices will be mailed in November to all supporters who haven’t contributed to this year’s appeal. We need the support of our readers to continue to bring news from across the Anglican Communion.”
