An Interim Report on Fundraising and Expenditures
(up to Feb 2014)
We are deeply grateful to our supporters and friends for your generous support which makes it possible for us to carry out our work smoothly in the past year. Many of you have made donations (some of you more than once) to support our work in the Deliberation Series (DDay 1, 2 and 3, and D-Polls), promotion among the public on why we need genuine universal suffrage in the Chief Executive Election, Referendum, etc. While many others dedicate a lot of their valuable time to help as volunteers so that we may keep our expenditures at a low level without compromising the quality of our work. And there are others who keep us going by their encouraging words and invaluable comments and suggestions.
To all of you, we owe you a big THANK YOU.
