It's been a big summer around the Foundation, thanks to literally thousands of hours of dedicated volunteer efforts and to a continuous flow of letters and contributions from many of you. You will see what I mean as you read this Newsletter.
And the best is yet to come! The prospects for further research and media productions already in process are irresistable. We have some exciting projects scheduled during 1984 when the general Church curriculum focuses on the Book of Mormon.
But to do it all, we need your help! Books, video productions, research internships, the Book of Mormon Encyclopedia—they all take money to get off the ground.
We can't begin to tell you how much we have appreciated your interest and support. We are proud of where we are going and just how far we have come.
But . . .
To accomplish our goals we need additional working capital. In the past we have asked you to send us a small contribution to help finance F.A.R.M.S. projects. For those few who have generously responded, we are indeed grateful.
Now . . .
We need your contribution. Anyone who enjoys the benefits of this organization, who wants to further the cause of the Book of Mormon in the world, should make a minimum annual tax-deductible donation to the Foundation. We appreciate those who are regularly giving. You are supporting a significant work.
Please read the enclosed letter from Hugh Nibley, then make your donation with the card and return envelope provided. Your contribution will help. When the income tax filing deadline comes around next April 15, you will wish you had given more to F.A.R.M.S
We want to do all we can to help further this important work.
