WILPF Communications and Fundraising Update

This week, I completed the International Communications Committee Report for the International Board meeting.

I also began receiving donations towards my participation in the January, 2010 WILPF IB Meeting, for which I am eternally grateful. To date, I have received $390 towards the trip from individuals. (Some of these donations came through PayPal, which charges a fee for its service, so the net donation amount is $382.13.)

I'm also pleased to report that I was awarded a Kay Camp Travel Grant. I wasn't informed what the amount of the grant will be, though I hope it was for $600 (the maximum available).

My current fundraising goal is $1,217.87.

My next goals: summarize the last WILPF LA bulletin into a one-page explanation of WILPF, for distribution at an upcoming Southern California Regional Conference of Organizations meetings.

After that, I'll begin working on a document to explain what communications strategy is and why it is vital to effectively distributing WILPF's messages.

Hi CJ:
How is your fundraising going? I hope you've gotten what you need: if not I'd like to contribute $100...
Your committee is so important to the initiative Advancing Women as PeaceMakers. Will you be at the CSW next March? Im now temporary co-chair of Development at least until the next board meeting...we're getting close to the $60,000 we need to be able to hire an Education Director....
