GCO Fundraising Committee Forming

As I announced at the GCO Summer Luncheon, I am forming a fundraising
committee that will have representatives from all the areas Listed at the
end of this post.
I plan for us to meet in a central location (most likely Warner Robins)
about once a quarter on a Saturday to discuss fundraising efforts and ideas
plus eat some chow and chew the fat a bit. All other communication will be
via email or phone. Each FO (Fundraising Operator) will be responsible for
contacting businesses in their area to request and pick up donations as well
as hand deliver Letters of Appreciation following an event. No experience is
needed, I will train anyone who wants to give it a shot. Folks with some
sort of sales background/experience make excellent fundraisers since
basically what we are doing is selling the donor on GCO. The main
requirement is enthusiasm. FO’s will also assist with fundraising ops at
events such as displaying auction items, recording bid information, selling
raffle tickets, running a fundraising game and other assorted duties. There
will be times when you will go weeks without really doing much and times
when it seems you don’t have enough time to do all you want to do. That is
where having a committee of fundraisers will come in. We will back each
other up and work as a team to meet our goals.
If that sounds like fun to you then you are as deranged as I am and should
fit in well. If you want to give it a shot then PLEASE, let me know and send
me your Name, address, phone number (home and cell if possible), email
and area you wish to represent, and I will add you to the list.
