JCSF Special Announcement - Cumulative Contribution
We are happy to inform that we have finally tabulated cumulative contribution for all the JCSF members. We have also sent personalized email to all JCSF members using email address in our records.
Kindly verify the amounts in that email and let us know if there are any discrepancies. If we do not have response from you by December 31st 2020, we will assume that the information is correct and proceed to use the final total amount.
In case if you have not received cumulative contribution email please contact Bharati Shah and/or Pragnesh Gandhi.
Currently we have following contribution levels:
The Petron Members minimum contributions level is $ 5,000.
The Trustee Members minimum contributions level is $ 10,000.
The Benefactor Members minimum contributions level is $ 50,000.
From 2021 onwards we are modifying (pending subject to general body approval) JCSF bylaws to simplify cumulative contribution calculation. The new version of bylaws rules provisions will be more inclusive and allow young members to rise in the organization. The JCSF had set minimum cumulative contributions more than 20 years ago and the value of the original dollar has diminished due to inflation. To make this more equitable, these new provisions in bylaws will increase the threshold for different membership levels.
We have sent each member their current membership level with contribution email. If you would like to upgrade your membership level, we will honor the older requirements until December 31st 2020. Please contact JCSF president Bharti Shah if you are interested. After this date, the new rules will take effect, and the minimum contributions needed for each level may be significantly higher.
We would appreciate if you would let us know prior to the deadline to make the necessary changes.
