General Fund

The General Fund is our financial pool of resources. From our general fund, all operating expenses, administrative communication - such as newsletters and other mailings and the operation of the Athens office are provided. The money for the General Fund is derived from several sources, most of which are specific donations or donations which are not targeted to a specific mission project. Interest on unrestricted endowment (permanent) funds may also be used for General Fund expenditures. It is the policy of the Board to keep "endowment funds" in perpetuity. Interest earned on endowment funds may be applied to any other mission or operational funds of MBL so long as such use is consistent with the intentions of the donors to that endowment fund.

Donors who have an interest in endowment funds or estate planning, please contact the president: Bob Harris at 770-815-9078 or via email   

The fiduciary responsibility for the General Fund lies with the president and the board of directors.
