Countdown to Founders’ Month of Service…6

Use your chapter’s operating budget. Chapters that are serious about philanthropy cover their own expenses.  If your chapter raises $1,000 in contributions but uses $600 to cover expenses, the juice probably wasn’t worth the squeeze.  There should be a line item in your chapter’s budget to cover the expenses of your philanthropy event.  This means that every dollar collected goes straight to the cause.  Letting donors know this will encourage them to be more generous.
