2022-10-25: Quasi-Endowment

Now that we're re-instated as a valid 501(c)(3) with the IRS (thanks to Charitable Allies for their help), we are pursuing a "quasi-endowment". Our intention is to invest the remaining funds and use any dividends from that investment to support ABM community members with conference registration fees, travel, etc. We will need to supplement that with donations, as well, because only a percentage of income can be from investment returns. Once we have the investment set up, we'll have an indication of how much we'll need in donations, which will provide the kernel for a fund-raising objective.
