I took on the role of organizing this month's volunteer social and was able to swing a free space donated by a local church. When I got in contact with the church originally, I mentioned having limited funds in the organization and that I was hoping for something free or very cheap.
In response to my proposal, they have given us a room free of charge to host our event for about 3 hours but they mentioned that any donations will be gratefully accepted.
Obviously, we plan to make a donation, especially since I'm hoping to be able to keep working with them in the future. My question to you is this: what is an appropriate amount to donate in this situation?
I tried doing some online research, but my search has turned up nothing I can refer to. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
