What do Community Partners Groups do?
- Plan and carry out fundraising events within their own communities in order to benefit GTF.
- Volunteer at various fundraising events throughout the year.
- Spread the word about GTF’s overall mission and goals.
What types of fundraisers can be done?
- No fundraiser is too big or too small; all ideas are GREAT ideas! This is an opportunity to be creative and think outside of the box.
- Some examples of fundraisers include: wine and cheese parties, neighborhood garage sales, holiday door decorations, cocktail parties, car washes, silent auctions and more.
How does a Community Partner Group work?
Each Community Partner Group will consist of at least five (5) members. Once a group is established, they will work together to create, plan, and facilitate their fundraisers. All groups will have a Lead Coordinator, to be chosen by a GTF staff person, who will serve for a one year term and be responsible for scheduling group meetings, reporting information to GTF, collecting all proceeds, and delivering them to the foundation. A GTF staff person will be available to help guide the group and give fundraising tips.
Who can become a member of a Community Partner Group?
