We met as a group of "Interested Fund-Raisers" and supporters of Non-Profits a few months ago, and we have decided to wait until after the Holidays to meet again.
We are hoping to meet with the idea of building a grass roots coalition of people with a cause. We are currently working with a number of non profits (and looking for more to work with!) and as we meet people working in the fund raising arena, we've discovered there is a need to find additional ways to fund our causes and to coordinate all of them. We want to hear from others in the Philadelphia area and then we'll have a more clear idea just what this group can accomplish. Right now we are thinking along the lines of making this a clearinghouse for shared support. The initial meeting was a casual exchange of ideas. We are hoping to build on that. Even if you couldn't join us at our last meeting, you are certainly welcome to join us this time. Part of our strength will certainly be in our numbers!
We are looking for guidance from those with experience, and we are looking for support from those of us interested in helping but unsure how.
We will be meeting on the more private 2nd Floor Lounge at ZENTO Sushi & Sake Lounge, 132 Chestnut Street in the Old City section of Philly. When you arrive, please tell the hostess you are with our "MeetUp Group" and she will send you up the stairs.
I am excited & looking forward to working with you!
