Fundraiser Consultant Helps Steer Efforts
Consultant Helps Steer Efforts
The GINLC Board of Directors invited a fundraiser consultant to a special meeting in February. Bonnie Marsh, who works for the Saginaw Basin Land Conservancy, spent several hours with the board. Marsh was asked to present her ideas (proven to succeed from past experiences) on how GINLC can generate more funds to help finance a more active program.
a very informative presentation that covered various aspects of fund raising.
Her suggestions dealt with several different subjects: more effective
annual fund raising campaigns via mailings, making annual visits to local
organizations to request donations and organizing small gatherings at
member homes to help spread the word about what we have done and plan
to do on Grosse Ile. Marsh also discussed the process of grant writing
to generate needed funds. The Conservancy Board has been reviewing the
recommendations and are deciding how to improve fund raising effectiveness.
