Fund Raising Ideas

Submitted by Tarpondog on Wed, 12/07/2016 - 6:36pm

How are some of the others chapters raising funds for FF? 

Here are some suggestions which will definitely work: 1) Find a minnow bucket and set it up at a table when you are doing your Family Fish Camps or other outreach events and ask folks to donate.  Let everyone in attendance know that FF survives on donations and that their donation will be matched through a grants we have received.  Tell them that any help is a big help.  Their donations allow FF to continue providing events like the one you are doing.  Don't be afraid to ask for donations.  Every chapter receives give-a-ways that must be purchased and shipped.  This past year we spend more than $11,000 for give-a-ways and shipping.   Without your help, FF may not be able to provide small items to give away. 2) Ask local businesses for a $200 - $500 donation and do a private Family Fish Camp for their employees. 3) Give presentations to local civic clubs, Kiwanis, Rotary, Lions, Masonic Lodges, American Legion, etc and ask for sponsorships or help.
