Donations

BVCC's only sources of revenue are now membership dues and donations.  We no longer have any grant revenue from volunteers working at the Bella Vista Recycle Center – the trade disagreements with China have substantially impacted the Recycle Center's revenue base.  Our fixed costs for rent and Internet service for our Training center are on multi-year contracts and continue even if our usage of the Center is temporarily limited.

Membership dues alone are insufficient for our organization to break even, and the only way we can make up the difference is through charitable donations.  There are several ways in which you may donate to BVCC:

  • Give a direct online donation to the BVCC PayPal account using the "donate" button on the right.  If you have a PayPal account, you can choose to pay through that account and the source of payment depends on your PayPal account settings, either a bank account or a credit/debit card.  With or without a PayPal account, you can choose to supply a credit/debit card for payment.  The transaction fee to us from PayPal is at the nonprofit rate of 2.2% + $0.30 per transaction. 

  • By setting up "The Bella Vista Computer Club" as your charity of choice at amazon.com.  Remember to make all your purchases at "smile.amazon.com", and a small percentage of each purchase will be donated to BVCC.  If a web search for an item sends you to "www.amazon.com", just overtype the "www" with "smile".  To set BVCC as your Amazon charity, just click on the Amazon Smile image on the right. 

  • By a mailed check to BVCC at Bella Vista Computer Club, 1801 Forest Hills Blvd, Ste 208, Bella Vista, AR 72715-3016.

  • By check or cash in person.

If you have enough deductions to itemize deductions on your taxes, The Bella Vista Computer Club qualifies as a registered IRS 501(c)3 charitable organization.
