That percent of net haunt income do you give to charity?
This would be the percentage after all your operating expenses
and construction cost are covered.

I don't really go on a percentage basis.. but donate anywhere from 20-30k to Variety Club/Childrens hospital every year.

We do 100% to charity; every cent after receipted construction material expenses. We also allow a second charity (March of Dimes for the past few years) if people want to donate a buck or two of their change to it; we give 'em glow sticks or other small trinkets for the additional donation.

100% of our proceeds go to our charities, Animal Friends and Homeless Childrens Education Fund. We donated 100k last season.

At first I was going to pass on responding; but after a few days decided it doesn't matter if others know. Some is donated to well known charities. Truth be told though a big reason for starting into this business even though it is exact same season as our fall harvest was to expand farms income base. The farm is arguably the sole real income generater for two of my adult sisters. One is mentally handicapped and the other physically handicapped; neither can get any type of job that does any more than few hours a week. And growing, corn, wheat and soybeans isn't always that great for my wallet either. Some finds its way into my churchs offering platre as well. Yes a Christian haunter. But hey, I was asked to resign from a Baptist board of trustee's because I occasionally had a drink.
