CURRENT MONEY STATUS


Since you all know it takes a ton of money to pull something like this off,
We thought we should share a basic view of where we are at with our goals and the money we have raised towards it to date. And request that you give serious thought to contributing to help us out in this endeavor:

 

FINANCIAL OVERVIEW FOR THE JUST US RIDERS PROGRAM ONLY:
(more detailed and organizational / GTKYF Inc wide overview is availible upon request)
This is Feb 1, 2018 through April 1, 2018 – with notes and projections for Spring 2018 in bold: (note- some are one time costs)

  • Food for Crew: $200 (current crew size has been greatly reduced and therefore so has this cost) THIS IS COVERED AT THIS TIME
  • Critter food and housing: $400 per month ( we project the ongoing cost will be approx $100 a week to maintain them going forward)
  • Phone / Internet for Crew: $110
  • Fuel / vehicle maintenance: $2000 OWED (estimated of $1000 a month going forward)
    • Our main vehicle on the east coast is pushing 300,000 miles and we are in desperate need of a upgrade in the near future. It is beginning to show the signs of the many miles we have traveled through out the country bring these programs.  It is also developing a noise within the transmission, for which we suspect will include replacing the transmission. In an effort to be good stewards we are looking to upgrade and in need of either a replacement vehicle donation, or the funds with which to do so.
  • Tiny house repairs to roof system damaged by this winters weather $1800 one time cost
  • Tiny house Insurance (the last step in getting it legal) $12000 for the year
  • Debt / loan payments due monthly $2000 (PAYMENTS ARE CURRENT BUT HELP IS NEEDED IN COVERING THIS ONGOING – TOTAL DEBT IS APPROX $15,000 AT THIS TIME – FOR THE JUST US RIDERS PROGRAM – not organization wide.)

OUR NEEDS IN 2018:
