We are looking into developing a new fundraising program, that functions a lot like membership. We are trying to encourage a sustaining donor program that has the same impact of a membership program, just on a higher fundraising scale. We want to build this out so that our board members could use the program to make their fundraising efforts more sustainable. We are planning on $1,200 commitment with monthly autopay and an associated, "Defender of the Glades" description.
We would be able to fully fund our foundational expenses by supporting our board through this program, which allows each board member to acquire pledges to give throughout the program.
Friends of the Everglades is a nonprofit founded in 1969 by renowned journalist, author, and environmental activist Marjory Stoneman Douglas dedicated to preserving, protecting, and restoring the only Everglades in the world.
"Be a nuisance where it counts. Do your part to inform and stimulate the public to join your action. Be depressed, discouraged, and disappointed at failure and the disheartening effects of ignorance, greed, corruption, and bad politics--but never give up." - Marjory Stoneman Douglas
Amy gave great advice on membership and is willing to assist us in the future in forming a strategy around our dual membership program.
