Fundraising Chair

General duties include:

Develop Strategy

A fund-raising chairperson's first goal is to develop or review current fund-raising strategies. This also includes meeting with the executive board or board of advisers to clearly define fund-raising goals and objectives. If the organization has a mission statement, the chairman uses the mission statement as a guideline to create a strategy. The chairperson also reviews past campaigns and analyzes the financial strategies and techniques of the organization.

Develop Ideas

The chairperson must have a vision for fund-raising ideas. The chairperson typically introduces fund-raising ideas to executive management and co-workers, seeking their feedback. The chairperson presents their ideas for discussion, mediation and consideration. Once the idea is accepted or approved, the chairperson can begin to target resources through formal proposals to solicit funds from corporations, businesses and through the grant writing process.

Networking

A chairperson is constantly meeting and networking with organizations such as rotary clubs, chamber of commerce groups, business development groups and government associations to solicit support for a fund-raising activity. Therefore, the individual must be engaging, outgoing, pleasant with the ability to motivate individuals and organizations to support a fund-raising cause. If the chairperson has a co-worker, the chairperson typically works with the individual to establish his goals and objectives related to organizational fund raising.

Volunteer at a Rally

Join us at peaceful rallies to educate the public that purchasing from pet stores supports puppy mills.

Currently 3CW Rally Volunteers are peacefully rallying at Puppies N Stuff, 12020 Melody Drive, Westminster, CO 80234. We have been there, and their former location, for several years to educate the public about puppy mill pet stores and give out informational packets. Before starting the rallies we researched this store with PACFA and found it to have numerous complaints and violations. Several volunteers bought puppies from this store that ended up with costly veterinarian bills or lost a puppy to parvo or another illness. We have very dedicated volunteers that pledge to continue the rallies until this puppy mill store switches to a humane style of holding adoptions similar to Petco and Petsmart.
