Gave what I could right now, and will do so again periodically. Its the least I can do since this community taught me so much and opened my eyes since discovering it.

EDIT: Nevermind, I see you guys still have the wrong email links at the beginning of this thread.

I made a donation in late August that has now been returned to my PayPal account. The email I received from PayPal mentioned that CalGuns never applied for a PayPal account, hence the payment was being returned. What's up?

Quote:
Subject:
You've got money!
Reason:
This payment was automatically returned by PayPal on Sep. 29, 2009 because the funds were unclaimed for 30 days.

Just a thought, but wouldn't we be seen as a bigger force to be dealt with if we actually had Calguns Foundation Memberships? Dues could be semi low, but just like the NRA, wouldn't we be better off if we could show we were organized, not just site users that occasionally donate?

We are seriously considering having members for a variety of reasons. However, financially we're doing well without having specific member dues levels.

As Gene mentions - we're looking at this. Regular donor programs of some sort are desired, CGF may well become a membership organization.

Seems I read somewhere that donations to CGF are now tax deductible. Problem is I can't find where I read it. Are donations deductible now, or are they still working on it? thanks

Thanks for the reply. I wasn't even aware of a pro-2nd amendment foundation for California. This state really needs one.

I'm adding CGF to my list of charitable organizations which I contribute to

Hello All,
I recently moved to Los Angeles with the knowledge that my guns would not be welcome with open arms. In an effort to determine what I needed to do to be in compliance with the (crazy) laws in California I relied heavily on this site...Thank you for the excellent content. Over the past couple of months I've become very passionate about gun rights, and I think it is fitting that my first post here is to announce that I just sent my paypal payment to the legal fund, and I now consider myself part of the effort.

Here's to fighting the good fight!

If we can only donate 10-20 bucks here and there.. would that be okay, or more like rude/silly?

Angry Paypal

Greetings,
I can't believe anyone at Cal-Guns would be affiliated with Pay-Pal in any way for there anti-gun, anti- Snd Amendment position. It is time we become the true Americans that stand by our nations armed forces and quit giving into the folks like paypal that are afraid to offend someone. SHAME ON YOU PAYPAL!
God Bless America!
