Hi all,

Would very much like your feedback and if you have alternative suggestions
please let me know.

I have been thinking about the way we do our annual project/chapter budgets
and wanted to run something by you.

Why don’t we ask all the chapters/projects/committee for funds they
*want/need* for initiatives for 2019 and for the foundation to have a
general pool
of funds for larger chapters + foundation to contribute & *raise* funds.

This does a few things:
1) It would create more activity and highlight which parts of the community
need funds to take on thise activities

2) it helps distribute funds in a simple way - because there is a general
pool and we have identified all/most of the demand we know how much money
needs to be in the pool / how much funds we need to raise

3) It shifts the conversation from - how do larger chapters keep the funds
already earned - to how chapters can contribute to
chapters/projects/committees can utilise funds to further the mission on
the foundation.

4) These demands identified can also help act as the basis of foundation
fund raising efforts. I.e. if there are not enough funds we go out and ask
for it.
