Donate to SLPA

Donate to SLPA

Did you know that the SLPA spends 75-80% of its annual revenue on road maintenance? …and its never enough!

 

Our annual revenue of just $45,000 barely allows us to cover our cost for insurance, utilities, legal fees, accounting, basic road maintenance and snow removal.  It never allows us to complete all the road maintenance that we’d like to complete in a given year.  So, any donation you can provide is very much appreciated!

You can choose where you would like your donation to go, or if you prefer to let us use your donation wherever we fall short, then choose the Donation for General Needs. You do not need a PayPal account to donate – you can use a debit/credit card.  Your donation is not tax deductible, as SLPA is not a registered charity.  However, you will automatically receive an email receipt for your donation.


Donation for General Needs

Your donation will go to support any SLPA expense including, legal fees, gravel, snow removal, accounting, insurance, postage, Quickbooks subscription, utilities or newsletters.

On the PayPal page, you will see “Purpose: Donation for General Needs.”


Donation for Capital Reserve Fund

Your donation will be added to the Capital Reserve Fund, which is used for road grading or graveling, snow removal, equipment repairs, fuel, vegetation trimming – all things related to Maintenance and Infrastructure.

On the PayPal page, you will see “Purpose: Donation for Capital Reserve Fund.”


Donation for Emergency Reserve Fund

Your donation will be added to the Emergency Reserve Fund, which is used for unexpected expenses, such as a law suit levied against the SLPA or an unexpected snow storm in April — which did happen in 2020.  On March 21, 2019, the mountain received 14 inches of snow (pictured on the right), while the valley only received rain.

Donation for Lake Reserve Fund

Your donation will be added to the Lake Reserve Fund, which was set aside several years ago specifically to repair Little Meadows Lake.  The drainage pipe in the lake has become rusted and is now leaking water out through the hillside.   Over time, the lake will drain completely, much like the smaller pond on lots G4 and G5.   Both bodies of water have the exact same pipe and drainage issue, except the smaller pond’s issues are more advanced and that pond is now completely empty.
