Dear Kolkata City Mission child sponsor,
Thank you for your ongoing, faithful support of Kolkata City Mission (KCM) and of its work to provide education for the children in and around Kolkata, India.
We want to update you on a small change in the organizational structure leading to how your money arrives at KCM effective June 11, 2018.
We want to assure you that 100% of your monthly, child sponsorship donations will continue to be wired directly to KCM and the child/children that you sponsor. Wire fees and other costs will be covered by the FLUME foundation or donations specifically designated for these purposes.
We are excited to announce The FLUME foundation (The Foundation for Lasting, United Movements and Endeavors). The FLUME foundation is a newly registered, USA based, non-profit (501c3 status).
The scope of the FLUME foundation is to support the organizational structure and the fundraising efforts of KCM with a specific focus towards the child sponsorship program and more generally, the World Health Organization's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) https://unstats-undesa.opendata.arcgis.com
Any receipts for donation will continued to be labeled Kolkata City Mission, but the bank details will be listed as: "the FLUME foundation”.
All gifts continue to be fully tax-deductible.
Thank you for your giving.
Ryan Paterson, MD; DTM&H
