Fundraising is tough on small, all-volunteer nonprofit organizations, especially when it falls entirely upon folks with no fundraising expertise and many other volunteer jobs that need to be done. There is a way to spread it around among the community members and make it easier for all. It will also help everyone who participates to feel more involved in building and growing our community.
If you want to help Vegetarian Society of Colorado out with VegFest (which also helps our community with promotion, gatherings, MeetUps, visiting speakers, web sites, office supplies, leaflets, etc), please consider hosting a WorldWide Vegan Bake Sale in your area. It's a lot of fun, a nice way to advocate for animals and a great way to make new friends in our community. You can use our MeetUps to ask for help from other members.
What is WorldWide Vegan Bake Sale and when is it? Check it out - http://veganbakes...
You don't have to keep to the dates they suggest, if other dates will work better for you.
You might consider applying to VegFund for help with ingredients: http://VegFund.or...
Please contact me personally, if you are willing to organize a bake sale and contribute the donations to VSC/VegFest.

Think of me tonight, for that which you savor.
Did it give you something real, or could you taste the pain of my death in its flavor?

Those of us who hear them, must help them to be heard. ~
