Right, i would be concerned that the expectation of a board being the
primary fundraisers / more importantl fundraisers, might come from a
more corporate or controlled context than this broad group of projects
If any committee is stalling or needs help it should have recourse to
the Board to help fix. I agree there should be a lot of overlap
between Board and Fundraising groups.
I would be interested in helping to get organisations to sponsor the
foundation, I would like to talk to the JRC about this and wonder if
others think this is a good idea, or suggest who to approach.
