This is a summary statement of your association's business plan. A fuller exposition of our hopes will be forthcoming if and when we develop funding to achieve its objectives.
Member Communication: It is our hope to improve continuously those features of the site that help members and classmates communicate both individually and as groups. Our immediate objective is to put in place a permanent organization to maintain the member database, the website, and associated services.
Scholarship Support: It is our hope that we might be able to build an endowment that would support scholarships for post-secondary education for both recent graduates, lifetime learners, and eventually the descendants of former alumni. Ideas for creating and funding such opportunities are earnestly sought and welcomed.
Revenue will come from Subscriptions, Fees and Advertising. Both annual and lifetime subscriptions will be offered, starting at a token $1 per month. Fees will be charged for reunion support and other labor intensive activities of the staff including development of group emails and other management services for special events. Advertising may be offered to businesses (a) in Temple City and adjacent communities; (b) belonging to or employing enrolled alumni; (c) otherwise supporting the objectives of the association.
The association receives no support from any institution, including Temple City High School and the Temple City Unified School District.
Current expenses include website registration and technical support; collection and editing of news and images; support of affinity groups (e.g., classes, clubs...) within the association; and other activities; Internet access and other telecommunications; taxes, licenses, legal and accounting fees. At some point it will become necessary to employ paid editorial staff to serve the estimated 25,000 to 30,000 alumni who might register.
