Ok, since yesterday I have gathered my thoughts, spoken with my director, and managed to get a comprehensive well thought out email to the chairperson of this fundraiser I have going for November. She emailed me back today and said that the Human Society would like to raise $1000!!! As I donate an additional 5% of my commission to fundraisers over $1000 this would lead me to calculate that the fundraiser should be around $5000 to reach her goal. WOW. I am a bit overwhelmed and excited at the same time. Again, this is the first large scale fundraiser I have done. Here is my game plan so far, please let me know what else I can do: - I have offered to meet with the staff members and volunteers who will be involved to get them excited and walk them through the fundraiser, how it will work, taking orders, etc. - I have also offered to have a kickoff for the Human Society where they can invite people to come watch a demonstration, learn about PC, learn about the Human Society's goals, and place orders - She has between 10-17 staff members and volunteers that she thinks will get involved. She asked "if 10 people collect 10 orders can we reach our goal?" Realistically, yes, (average of a $50 order) but I would like to account for a bit of a cushion to be safe, so I will encourage her to strive for more people and a few extra orders. - I have received permission from the home office to link my PWS to their website, and they have an e-newsletter going out next week that will advertise the fundraiser, so hopefully this will generate lots of online sales. Is there anything else you can think of that I can do to ensure this fundraiser reaches the $5K goal? We're running it from 11/2-11/28, almost 4 full weeks... Thank you!!!
