The purpose of the Community Appeals Committee is to qualify and provide orderly scheduling of capital fund drives to the business community.
By vetting capital fund drives, the objective of Community Appeals is to affirm the project is a sound community investment and worthy of donor consideration.
It is the intent of the Chamber to encourage every business to carefully consider such requests. However, we also acknowledge that many businesses have limited resources for capital fund drives, both in an ability to properly evaluate them and a sufficient budget to contribute. Our Community Appeals process is intended to provide our members with assurance that a Community Appeals campaign Is worthy of investment.
All requests for capital fund drives must be made by submitting an email to Mike Lynch at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be considered in the following two areas: Social and Educational – for review by the entire committee.
Requests for a capital fund drive need to be scheduled. Applications will be accepted by the Committee May 1 to August 1 of any one year and the suggested solicitation amount and time slot for approved drives will be determined and scheduled by the committee no later than calendar year-end.
