Dear Friends,

If you need to have your name or a family member's name removed from our contact list please give us a call, email or write us. We write to our benefactors via direct mail through the Post Office.  most of our benefactors receive our letters of encouragement and inspiration monthly.  Fr. Bill Spencer's letter is sent out at the beginning of each month.  We provide the following schedule choices for receiving Fr. Bill Spencer's letter:

Monthly:              A letter every month.
Quarterly:           A letter in March, June, September and December
Twice a Year:     A letter in June and December
Annual:               A letter in December only

​We currently thank our benefactors monthly.  In the middle of each month we send out a 'Thank You' letter to each of our benefactors who have made a contribution during the previous month.  This monthly method of thanking our benefactors has saved us thousands of dollars each year.  We want to thank our benefactors promptly and we also expect to be good stewards of the gifts we have received.  Some benefactors choose not to thanked and we honor their request.

In January we send out a 'Thank You' letter to all benefactors who have made contributions during the previous calendar year.  This letter provides the important tax related information that many of our benefactors are seeking.  

We do not share, sell or exchange the names of our benefactors!

If you are interested in receiving our letter, please send us an email or write us a note.  We would love to hear from you.  If you need to have your name or a family member's name removed from our contact list please give us a call, email or write us.
