Monday, October 21, 2013 8:00 AM

The Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation (Foundation) is seeking applicants for its Fundraising Committee. This committee’s role is to assist with the development and oversight of the Annual Fundraising Plan. Applications are being accepted through Nov. 15.

The committee encourages, trains, and praises fellow trustees for their involvement in fundraising activities. They explore potential, new fundraising activities as part of the strategic planning process. Special events subcommittees can be established as part of this committee when appropriate.
I am attaching the form to be completed for anyone interested in serving in this capacity.

Responsibilities include:

  • To work with staff to establish a fundraising/action plan that incorporates a fundraising target, prospect research,  series of appropriate vehicles and sources, such as special events, direct mail, individuals, grants, etc.;
  • To work with Foundation staff in their efforts to raise money;
  • To take the lead in certain types of outreach efforts, such as chairing an event’s committee or hosting a “friendraiser”, etc.;
  • To be responsible for involvement of all board members in fundraising, such as having board members make telephone calls to ask for support, follow-up thank you correspondence to donors, and;
  • To monitor fundraising efforts to be sure that ethical practices are in place, that donors are acknowledged appropriately, and that fundraising efforts are cost-effective.
