MCRA Life Membership Trust Earns $491.33 for 2nd Quarter CY15

The Marine Corps Reserve Association Life Membership Trust received $491.33 in dividends and interest during the second quarter of 2015. This is in contrast with $411.29 received during the corresponding quarter of 2014. Increased dividends by assets already held by the Trust accounted for $15.70 of the increased earnings. The remaining increase  is the result of a shift in assets to more favorable opportunities.

The forward looking statement provided in the April news release is now updated to reflect additional dividend increases announced since the April statement. It was previously estimated that the Trust will be able to provide $1,677.05 to the Association during 2015, based on current holdings. The estimate is revised to $1,708.81.

Current projection for 2015 do not take into account the effects resulting from increased investments as the Trust receives additional donations and dues from new life members.  The recent receipt of a gift as well as anticipation of the receipt of recently paid new life memberships will be invested and will increase the earnings of the Trust for the remainder of this year.

Interested parties may make donations directly to the Trust. Help push the asset value of the Trust over the $50,000.00 mark this year with your donation. Make your check payable to:
