Please NOTE: Our most recent Historical (Achieved) Milestones are also listed on our Home Page (lower left)
1. Please note, Plan Milestones & Events are subject to change, pending action of the President and vote of the Directors, pursuant to our Articles, Bylaws and Policies.
2. As well, since we are in "Launch" and "Phase1 Scale-up" mode thru December 2018, as stated elsewhere in this site, during this period, Plan Milestones & Events remain fluid and are subject to change at any time. Once the Organization reaches full funding and "stable operations", which we expect by year-end of 2019 ("The Road to $300K in donations and 1000 members", we expect Plan Milestones to be more stable and less subject to change, as determined by annual planning cycles and the fuller Staff.
3. Therefore, we appreciate your patience during this time! If you wish to help us reach our Plan goals and "stable operations" sooner, please give us you best level of financial support at this time - your help will be greatly appreciated - and we thank you in advance!
