From my desk in Berlin
As indicated in our trimonthly report covering December 2012 through February 2013, we are continuing to expand the Berzin Archives web site. In addition to the 15 language sections already online, we are actively preparing Tibetan, Mongolian and Hindi sections. Soon we shall begin preparation of a Farsi section as well. With most of our treasure trove of old audio cassette recordings of my lectures now digitized, we are also planning to step up our audio editing and transcription work.
We have already hired an administrative assistant to help coordinate the additional personnel we will need to employ in order to complete this next phase of our project. All this expansion requires, of course, further funding. We have therefore raised our cumulative fundraising goal here on Global Giving to $150,000.
If you would like to see how we have been spending the donations that we have been receiving from you, as well as from other kind supporters directly via our website and from several foundation grants as well, please take a look at our detailed budget report for 2012. As you can see, our total income for the year was $163,577.43 and our expenditures were $161,817.84. As our projected expenses for 2013 will be higher than those of last year, we hope that you will continue to support our efforts to “Make the Ageless Wisdom of Tibet Available to All.”
Project reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to globalgiving.org by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.
