There have been a number of contributions by members which we accept gratefully.
If there has been a substantial expenditure those who wish to often contribute.
However, if anyone expects to be fully reimbursed the membership must reach
consensus on an acquistion before hand!  Right now we are going through a
"voluntary assessment" process to buy the really expensive stove we nkow we 
which is a lot more expenseive than the one we budgeted for.  We took a poll to
see how much people will be willing to contribute and are now collecting the
pledged amounts prior to going out and buying the Dream Stove!
I think it should be clear that noone should go out and buy something to
"contribute" unless they are willing to pay for it on their own!  Especially
something like a copier which is a nice thing to have but not sensible from an
economic point of view (we investigated!)
