Each League needs to keep their financial status in balance. In addition to dues revenue, Leagues and League members need to raise additional funds to accomplish their goals. Raising money is an important skill, and is effective when “making your case” for why the League makes a difference in your community. The League is highly respected, and when we are visible on issues of importance within our communities, often it’s just a matter of asking people, organizations, or business to contribute. Speak to what the benefits are to them, as well, and you’ll be successful in raising the money and in-kind contributions you need to accomplish your League goals.
Some suggestions for “Easy Ways to Raise Money for your League” are included in Appendix L.
