Warchest Report for August 2019

The ABC Federation prides itself on accountability, especially when it comes to the funds received and disbursed under the ABCF Warchest. As part of this effort in transparency, the ABCF issues the Warchest Fund Report, which shows the recent activity of the Warchest.

Please note that while the monetary amount of RDTW has been added to the report, we did not have the space for the breakdown of funds received through the run. For complete accountability we will post them here: Los Angeles RDTW ($3220); New York RDTW ($1765); Oakland RDTW ($961); Chicago RDTW ($440); Hamilton RDTW ($185).
