   Our sincere thanks for your generous loan to the New Deal Cafe! Thanks to you, we’ve successfully navigated a difficult transition period and can now look confidently into the future. A big part of that future is the Cafe’s 25th anniversary in 2020, and we’d like to share with you some of our plans for this milestone and our hopes for how you might fit in.
    The New Deal Cafe board is in the process of planning a year-long commemoration of our silver anniversary. Among the many ideas we’re considering right now are a special outdoor music festival, a gala dinner and silent auction, monthly special events, media outreach and more!
    Perhaps most important, we would like to use this occasion to help us attract new members and raise money for the Cafe to build a solid foundation for the future. We’ve set ambitious goals of signing up 250 new members and raising $250,000 in 2020. This funding will help us tackle much-needed projects like updating our floors and ceiling, restoring our original window on the front of the building, reducing our debt, and establishing an endowment for future projects (perhaps even purchasing the building!).
   This is an ambitious but achievable effort, and we’d like to ask for your help. When we go public with our fundraising effort in a few weeks, we’d like to announce that we’re well on our way to our goal (thus encouraging others to jump on board). Would you be willing to turn part or all of your previous loan into a donation that will help kick off our fundraising effort?
   A pledge to turn any portion of your loan into a gift will have an enormous impact—helping to encourage others to give, and ensuring our financial viability into the future. We are grateful for your past generosity, and we hope you’ll consider stepping up once again and helping us celebrate a happy 25th anniversary and a bright future for the Cafe!
   The Cafe's membership director, Bill Jones, will be reaching out to you shortly about your loan and can provide you with a short form to sign to convert this into a donation. You can also contact me or any other member of the board, and we'd be happy to help you fill out this form and/or answer any questions you have.

Many thanks,
Mark Cheater
Secretary, New Deal Cafe Board of Directors
