Fundraising For MSFC

As a member of MSFC’s Board of Directors, you are required to participate in the organization’s fundraising efforts. Collectively, the Board has been challenged to raise $20,000 in 2016 (this is entirely separate from the expectation that board members collectively contribute $12,000 in personal funds).

Board members are required to either participate in the formal letter writing project (submitting 20 names to be solicited via a letter written and approved by the fundraising committee) OR pursue any other fundraising effort they wish as long as they pursue their alternative strategy with the goal of raising a minimum of $500. You may also do a combination of the formal letter writing project and another fundraising effort of your choice.

Below is a collection of resources, samples, and downloads for those who choose to undertake an alternative fundraising method.

PLEASE REMEMBER: We are here to help and encourage you every step of the way. Have an idea that is not listed here? No problem! We can help you think through how it can work for you and for MSFC.
