Em hotep to all Shemsu and Remetj,

This time of year is a time of renewal. As we ring in the Kemetic New Year (for Regnal Year 28!), we will mark the occasion in many ways: by honoring the Netjeru born during the Epagomenal Days, by receiving Aset's oracle and celebrating the God(s) of the coming year, and by rejoicing with each other during the festival of Wep Ronpet. We will set our personal goals for the year to come, as well as reflect upon the incredible blessings we receive as Shemsu and Remetj of the House of Netjer.

At this festive time, the renewal of the King's stipend also requires our attention. Last year, a Ministerial Services Contract was created formalizing an agreement to pay Hemet $2,000 per month, which would enable her to work for the Temple 32 hours per week.

If 300 people can increase their donations by $3.50 per month, we'll be able to raise the entire amount needed to keep our budget funded. If you would like to make an annual contribution instead of starting or increasing a monthly donation, this would work out to $37.00 per member. Whether you're able to contribute monthly or annually, this will help us cover the $11,000 shortfall we are currently facing over the course of the year.

As you know from our regular Fundraising Committee updates, $1,000 of the donations we receive each month goes toward fulfilling our contract with Hemet, and $500 goes toward Tawy House expenses. Anything above this initial $1,500 goes to the Rollover Fund, which serves as a reserve to draw from in order to meet any relatively small deficiencies month by month.

For the past year, the $1,000 from these donations has been matched by an additional $1,000 drawn from a separate account specifically earmarked for the payment of Hemet's stipend. Through the generosity of five individuals whose combined donation of $10,000 funded this account, we have been able to meet the terms of the Ministerial Services Contract and pay Hemet her agreed-upon stipend of $2,000 per month.

These funds are now depleted, so we as the Temple membership will come together to meet Temple expenses, Tawy House expenses, and Hemet's stipend per the Ministerial Services Contract.

If you are able to contribute to this important goal, please donate via PayPal Giving Fund (https://paypal.com/us/fundraiser/charity/70429) or Zelle (https://www.netjer.org/forums/index.php?topic=23251.msg323297#msg323297 and https://zellepay.com) instead of using regular PayPal. (PayPal Giving Fund and Zelle do not charge fees, whereas regular PayPal subtracts as much as 10% from donations). If you want 100% of your donation to be used for Hemet's stipend, please email Rev. Ihhysenu (revihhy@kemet.org) and request that your donation be utilized in this manner.  If you have any questions, please contact Tatuayinepu via DM on the forums.

Thank you for your time and consideration. Together, we can support our Temple community.

Senebty,
