We are celebrating another year of fruitful work as Novalis enters its 35thyear.
We are launching an ambitious fundraising campaign to expand the circle of Ubuntu member Friends of Novalis to as many as possible to mark its 35thbirthday on the 21stSeptember. For this occasion we aim to materially increase contributions towards the work of running the Institute, and also seeking financial support that is not tied to designated project funds specifically. This will allow the core group to continue with its work of sustaining the overall project and provide resources that will ensure continuity eg communications and networking; and materialising our current Wish List. (see attached)
We make this appeal to everyone who has enjoyed meeting Novalis, its work and its co-workers over its existence to date.
We further encourage you to extend this invitation to your friends and associates that may wish to also make contributions towards this universally inspired endeavour and substantially increase its call to action.
