  3. Focusing Our Efforts 1. Identify What Your Organization is Good and Bad At • Strengths and weaknesses of your executive board • Available resources • Number of participants • Support of the community/university 2. Assign a Project Manager • All communication goes through them • They are present at the actual event • They maintain the books so continuity is achieved

Recruit, Advertise, Discuss • Recruit: tell people about it, give them plenty of time to clear the date • Advertise: use local school media and the all-powerful word of mouth • Discuss: tell your supporters why you are raising money, explain to them why the issue is important to you 4. Fail-Safe Measures • Record all transactions and have at least two people present when exchange of money occurs • Have a back-up plan for the venue and workers: outdoor, indoor, size, etc. • Consider partnering with other organizations for greater manpower

  5. Case Study Example: SONIC Car Hop 1. Identify What Your Organization is Good and Bad At • Small amount of people, but good at word of mouth advertisement • Prefer one day fundraiser with good results • Very friendly members who would do well in food service

  6. Case Study Example: SONIC Car Hop 2. Assign a Project Manager • VP Finance put in charge of project • Her roles included: finding potential locations, contacting mangers, setting appropriate dates, paperwork, and approval with CSI • She had final say on project guidelines and execution

SONIC, contd. • Recruit, Advertise, Discuss • Facebook ad and event put up by VP Communications • Flyers distributed to on-campus residence halls and apartments • Chapter advisor notified • If possible, free advertisement in campus media • Signs at each SONIC station • Recruit, Advertise, Discuss • Use your passion for the cause to gain support • Education gaps • Low-income/socio-economic students • Easy way to give back and see how your help can make a clear difference • Talk to your members • Relay information • Make the cause clear

Impact • Successful fundraising multiplies • Keep the future in mind • See if it is a repeatable project • Accomplishment • Gives the project manager sense of satisfaction and worth • Greater responsibility and ownership of projects • Sense of unity • If you can get the entire group out, working together towards a common goal is great for enthusiasm/spirit • Clear Results • Officers and members feel like they have actively contributed, and can start to see the end goal

  9. What is the eventual goal? • Making “Learn to Be” a community name • Expanding the Learn to Be network to local schools • Having our organization known as a reputable source of aid in regards to education

  10. What is the eventual goal? • Support • From the campus community • From administration • From local school districts • Giving Back • Expansion of the original premise of Learn to Be • Active volunteerism • Point of interest for potential members
