My fundraiser has gone through many road blocks i still believe it will work out in a few weeks but i did not know it was going to be this complicated to run a school dance. I have myself gone and talked to school administration and they told me that i needed to hire school police out of my own pocket pay for the janitor to clean up thoroughly after i do cannot have parent chaparones and teachers have to be apart of being in charge. The DJ has to have a special license. Myself as a 16 year old girl cannot afford thousands of dollars for one school dance for a fundraiser not even to keep the money but to donate it to a great charity. I have been doing a lot of planning lately and i want this to go through i don’t want to give up because it’s too hard. I want to succeed in this because you have to fail to succeed. I want to donate my money to give to charity’s if i had the money i would but i don’t so this fundraiser is my plan to give money.

After calling an organization that I looked up on the internet I was very scared and nervous did not believe i could call a stanger over the phone and ask them questions about their organization. I asked her many questions on the script but she never knew about philanthropy so i explained a little she was trying to rush me off the phone until i told her my group was going to donate money. After I told her she told me to E-mail her and she would keep in touch. I E-mailed her and waited a couple days and she never replied so i knew she didn’t really care but it was fine because we had another organization that did reply and came to to the Q & A and kept in contact. We found a tax 990 for for the organization we found and analyzed it very carefully i believe the best organization is the ojne who works for less money to help a cause and i cannot wait to take my own time to┬áraise money for a great cause to this Veteran foundation that is very proficent with their help with veterans and amazing heart to stay motivated.

I feel that I will expect many things when reaching out to non-profit organizations. I could get positive phone calls and also negative. I hope that I can find a great organization to be able to trust them with donating the money my group and I will be fundraising. Making our mission statement will make us understand what we are doing and realistically make this possible I am very excited about Main Street Philanthropy.

Brown paper bag & Fundraiser

In my group we all brought a paper bag with three things that describe us. I brought for one, A pink sparkly bow to show the preppy side of me because i am a cheerleader and also i wear bows for my softball games. I also brought a little handbag of all the small city’s and places around Spain because i love to travel. I also brought my phone becuase it shows the social side of me and I am a very social person. The fundraiser my group and I are doing is a “Stacy Hawkin’s” dance where we are going to get my cousin do DJ and have the girls ask the guys i believe we could raise a lot of money so we can donate to our veteran’s that support our country.
