The purpose of this letter is to, once again, appeal to you for your financial support of our fundraising effort. Polish Children’s Rainbow Fund is having yet another fundraising event, 13th Annual Holiday Fair, on December 9, 2018, on the grounds of “Szarotka” Retirement Home in Los Angeles.
To mark the 20th Anniversary of our operation, we are planning the special attractions and commemorative concert.
The monetary prizes are irresistible: $400 funded by POLAM, $200 by Polish American Congress, as well as gift certificates donated by Solidarity Restaurant ($150), and European Deli and Bakery ($75, $50 and $25). Please return the enclosed ticket stubs with your name and telephone number and your donation, payable to: Polish Children’s Rainbow Fund, to
Anna Olekszyk, 676 Taylor Drive, Monterey Park, CA 91755, by November 15, 2018.
Suggested donation for the book of six tickets is $10.
To refresh your memory, we are a non-profit, charitable organization established in 1998 to benefit Polish children in need, especially orphaned and in foster care. Effective June 30, 2018, we have raised and transferred funds in the amount of $106,550 to the following institutions in the Republic of Poland: Franciscan Sisters of St. Mary’s Family, Our Home, Tanowo, Pielgrzymowice, and Pope Pius XI Orphanages, Institution for Children with Special Needs in Bialka Tatrzanska, Silesian School in Suwalki, Growth Center in Katowice, and Foundation “Mirror of Dreams” in Warsaw. Since 2010 we’ve also been supporting families with children in financial and health crisis.
Our goal this year is to exceed the $120,000 fund-raising mark; we can only get there with your help, so please donate as much as you can afford!
As a charitable association, our organization is exempted from a federal income tax under Section 501(a) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) and state franchise or income tax under the Section 23701d of the Revenue and Taxation Code. All contributions are tax deductible as provided in Section 170 of the IRC and Section 23701 of the Revenue and Taxation Code.
Your generosity and your on-going support of our cause are greatly appreciated.
Anna Olekszyk, President
