What To Do With The Black Fund

 

When hearing about 'black fund', some might wonder, “How come the convent management have a black fund?” This stashed fund is due to the funds accumulated during the past few years. It is the earning from the rosaries the children made, along with savings, and also from contributions made from sponsors for each individual. It is called the 'black fund' because it is not accounted in the bookkeeping, due to it being solely as gifts for the children. However, management must be granted permission and approval to used. 
The black fund is not much. It is only used during special occasion like New Year, birthdays, organizing picnics for the children after each semester exam, or just to relieves stress.
Since Mother is coming home, she had combined all of the events together to save and money for convenient. It is celebrating the 4 children whose birthdays falls in the month of July and August, celebrating our new home, celebrating Mother's Day for mother and Ms.Yen Thao, celebrate mother coming home, thanking Aunt Thom, thanking and welcoming the 2 new volunteers. One managing in account payable and the other one in receivables.
