There was exciting news at Congress about how our development efforts could take off, if members supported the BUY WILPF A CUP OF COFFEE Campaign.
Get your own Powerpoint presentation that explains clearly how the BUY WILPF A CUP OF COFFEE Campaign makes possible more funding for both PROGRAM and BRANCH activities. If you are interested in the presentation to help your own understanding, or if you want to share it with your branch members, contact Development Chair Marybeth Gardam at GrowingWILPFChair@gmail.com to have the Powerpoint sent to you as an email attachment.
One piece of information you need to know is that we could fund half of our entire organization’s annual budget if we had just 200 members contributing $10 a week (that’s $520 a year each). The figures are pretty amazing. We currently have roughly 1,200 members. If just 200, or 500, of them participated in this giving program, look what our work would gain:
$5/month x 12 months = $60/year per donor
- 200 members giving $5/month = $12,000 we’d collect annually FOR PEACE
- x500 members giving $5/month = $30,000 we’d collect annually FOR PEACE
$10/month x 12 months = $120/year per donor
- 200 members giving $10/month = $24,000 we’d collect annually FOR PEACE
- 500 members giving $10/month = $60,000 we’d collect annually FOR PEACE
$5/week x 52 weeks = $260/year per donor
- 200 members giving $5/week = $52,000 we’d collect annually FOR PEACE
- 500 members giving $5/week = $130,000 we’d collect annually FOR PEACE (that is about half our annual budget!)
$10/week x 52 weeks = $520/year per donor
- 200 members giving $10/week = $104,000 we’d collect annually FOR PEACE
- 500 members giving $10/week = $260,000 we’d collect annually FOR PEACE (that would cover our entire budget . . . and then some!)
Imagine having the extra funding we need to better fund Programs, Mini-Grants, printed RESOURCES and TOOLKITS, Recruiting materials, and staffing to better support your work!
It’s easy to give monthly and automatically through our website. And the contribution you make supports your WILPF sisters and GROWING WILPF efforts around the US. It’s priceless!
