Through your efforts, the National Fund Goal of $36 million was surpassed on the 12th Day of Ridván and the final number is $36.5 million. The Office of the Treasurer extends its congratulations to you and appreciates your sacrificial contributions. You have shown great generosity, sacrifice, selflessness, and a myriad other qualities of the spirit in order to reach this challenging goal. The heartfelt efforts of the friends not only provides practical support to the advancement of the Cause, but also reveals the desire and commitment of the U.S. Bahá’í community to transform the world into Bahá’u’lláh’s vision.
The Treasurer of the National Spiritual Assembly invites all Treasurers and their assistants from Local Spiritual Assemblies, Regional Bahá'í Councils, and Regional Training Institutes to the National Treasurers' Forum. In addition to the Treasurers and their assistants, we encourage all members of the aforementioned Institutions to register and attend. It's time to gather nationally as stewards of the Funds, the lifeblood of the Cause, to talk about how to hasten the advent of Bahá’u’lláh's civilization and the crucial role the Funds play in building it. Let's learn from each other, reflect with each other, and pray together. We'll see you September 20-22, 2018 (plan to arrive Sept 19 for registration) in Evanston, IL, in the shadow of the Mother Temple of the West. More details, including a registration link, coming soon.
