Hi Anne. Here is a thought I have for a fundraising suggestion. I'm sure financial and donated resources are strapped, and "people power" are few, but here's a thought:
What if the PF started having an annual membership drive, which required a set amount to join? Something as small as $10 maybe...and of course, people could give annually more if they preferred and were able.
The website/forums would all be free of charge to anyone like they are now, but for people who wanted to be a member, you could charge the annual membership fee, and give something in return...something that would help create awareness...like the first year, it could be a PF license plate frame, the next year it could be a PF t-shirt...or you could do the same every year.
The community I live in requests a $20 donation for an annual membership, which gives me a huge (like 50 pages) newsletter delivered to my door every month. I'm not suggesting giving anything like that, but also I get each year a decal (which I place on the inside of my car facing out) that is not sticky but it sticks on the window with the community logo on it and the current year. The PF could consider something like that to create awareness, too.
What do you think?
