  9. What is RP? See Pg. 2

  10. Two things in one… • “RP” is both • RESEARCH Promotion • RESOURCE Promotion

  11. Resource Promotion • Research • Education (ALI) • Unrestricted/General Fund • ASHRAE Foundation

  12. Education & Unrestricted Funds • Education • ALI – ASHRAE Learning Institute • Development of new Courses and Training Materials • Unrestricted • The ASHRAE General Fund • Supports all different projects and can be used by all departments • Helps supplement Dues, Ad sales and Bookstore sales

  13. ASHRAE Foundation • General • Typically supports ALI • Endowed Research Funds • Generates a 5% annual return • Great for memorials, honor gifts, chapter donations • No more than 50% of Chapter donations

  14. ASHRAE Foundation & Research • Counts toward your Goal! • Endowed funds count into perpetuity • Earns PAOE Points • Great way to help secure the Chapter’s success • Create a lasting Memorial or Honorarium

  15. ASHRAE Foundation – Scholarships • Lynn Bellenger Scholarship! • Counts toward your Goal • Counts toward PAOE • Counts toward Awards • DOES NOT count against next yr’s H5 • New small Goal • October 15th deadline

  16. The Big One …

  17. Research • $1.9+million annually • Research Projects • Grant-in-Aid Projects (students) • 80+ Projects • Every Region has Research! • 13 out of the 14 Regions get a minimum of $1.20 “back” in research compared to what’s raised • 8 out of 14 get $4.00+ “back” in research!

  18. The Nuts & Bolts The How’s, Why’s and What’s of RP

  19. Fundraising Terms • LYBUNTS • Last Year donors who haven’t given yet this year • SYBUNTS • Previous donors who haven’t given yet this year and didn’t give last year • Non Donor • Member who hasn’t given in 5+ yrs See Pg. 22

  20. LYBUNTS • Gave during the “last” campaign but haven’t given yet this year • “Low Hanging Fruit” • Know Research • Support ASHRAE • Involved • Majority of Donors • Easiest donation to get ….. and yet ……

  21. On June 30th, 2012 … 5pm … 2011-12 Campaign: $2,192,000 raised from 7,000 donors ($30,000 more than last year!) $380,000 1,200 LYBUNTS

  22. Why do LYBUNTS exist? • The reality of life • 50%-75% of donors renew • We do have duplicates in the system • The single biggest reason ….

  23. No one asks for their support

  24. “Thank you so much for your support last year and I hope that the Metro Chapter can count on you again this year!”

  25. Don’t worry about it • They’re not going to ask a question you can’t answer • Why should I give? • What’s in it for me? • How much do you want? • Where should I send the check? • Even if they do … • “You know, let me check on that and I’ll call you back”

  26. ASHRAE Resources for LYBUNTS • 10 Yr History Report • How much they gave in the past • Max amount in 2-3 yrs • Why they gave • Specific areas of interest • Special events? • Ad sales? • Show sponsor?

  27. To get you started • Run your 10-yr history real time report • Found on the private RP Webpage • Sort to find your LYBUNTS • them • Don’t email them • Don’t mail to them Call

  28. SYBUNTS • Gave in previous campaigns but haven’t given yet this year • “Middle Fruit” • Know Research • Supported ASHRAE in the past • Involved or were involved • Associated with a big mystery ….

  29. Why did they stop giving?

  30. Lots of possible suspects • Stopped being involved in the Chapter • INVITE them back! • Reach out and make the personal connection • Upset • Never underestimate the power of emotions • Find out what and/or Contact your RVC or Staff • Out of the industry • Thank and let Staff know

  31. The biggest & most likely culprit … • No one asked • ASK • Thank • Re-educate about Research • Ask • Specific amount at least Honor Roll!

  32. Non-Donors • Haven’t given in at least 5 yrs • High Fruit • Lots of work but potentially big pay-offs • May not be active Chapter members • May be younger or older & feel they have less resources

  33. Non-Donor First Steps • Find the disconnect & work to solve it • Not involved with the chapter? • Not informed about ASHRAE Research? • Or would other funds interest them more? • Just never been asked? • ASK for their support • Specific amount at least Honor Roll! • Specific instructions • Follow up

  34. Check out Page 21 Remembering the definitions

  35. The “Ask” Too much, too little or just not doing it

  36. How much to Ask for • Minimum of “Honor Roll” level • $100 for individuals, $150 for companies • Use the 10 Yr History report as reference • ASK for a specific amount See Pg. 27

  37. How to find donors • 10 yr History Report • Real Time Reporting • www.ashraerp.com • Your Member List & Community • Local employers, companies, suppliers • Who do you do business with?

  38. Paper Chase with Meaning Summary Form Full Circle Worksheet • How you send in the $$$ • Like a deposit form at the bank • Contributor Numbers • Full address if no # • Contact name! • Phone number! • Two types – use what is easier for you • OR create your own! • Deadline: 11/15/2012 • MUST send in the form • All the Chapter Officers • Minimum of $100 • Great first meeting activity • Travel vouchers? “I’m not asking you to support something I don’t support” See Pg. 11

  39. So … how much do I raise? • Goal • Not based solely on what you did last year! • High 5 • H5 • High 5 Award • Challenge See Pg. 56

  40. All Important Goal Dates • December 30th • 30% of Goal met • June 15th • 100% of Goal met • June 30th • ULTIMATE DEADLINE – if it’s not in Headquarters, it doesn’t count • June 28th

  41. at least to fundraisers and to donors The two most important words

  42. Say it loudly, often and with meaning THANK YOU! See Pg. 29

  43. Donor Recognition • “Honor Roll” level • HVAC&R Coin • ‘Years of Giving’ Coins • October Journal Listing • AHR Expo Listing • Chapter & Regional Display Listing • Beyond “Stuff” • Saying Thank You
