Agenda for Fundraising Committee 02-04-2020

Chair: Jamie Burdeski

Old Business

  • Lots of MEDC reports got updated, yay! Still need the one for January. Who wants to volunteer? Jamie volunteers.
  • Ford Application is just about ready to submit, just need the section on the corporate sponsorship stuff updated.
  • MEDC gifts: a bunch have been finished and are ready to mail. Want to help? See Jody. Need a form letter to send people to ask for physical address or other way to send them their stuff.

New Business

Example New Business

We're going to look at the draft thank you note together!

Should we create a splash page on our website that people are automatically sent to after giving us a donation, say via PayPal? Same basic language as the Thank You note.

Schedule a once a month workgroup meeting in addition to committee meetings? Tentatively choosing to do it on the fourth Tuesdays at 6:30. If anyone wants to participate go to http://www.i3detroit.org/hangouts.

Kevin Fa. saw a grant from the American Crafts Council. He will do research & get back to us!
