Camp Arrowhead Task Force
Fundraising Committee

Meeting Minutes 11/12/07
Issues relating to fundraising – what are our needs?

• Operational costs – both short term and ongoing
• Repairs and upgrades
• Equipment: Program, maintenance, facility
• Camperships
• Communication/Marketing

Short Term Goals
• Raise $150,000 in unrestricted funds to cover operational costs of camp for 2008.

Long Term Goals
• Support Capital Campaign fundraising efforts
• Raise money to cover additional property repairs and upgrades beyond the $1 million from the Capital Campaign
• Support ongoing operational and program costs of the camp

How we will do this
Family Giving Phone-a-thon December 6, 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. The phone-a-thon will raise money both for the council’s Opportunity Fund and for Camp Arrowhead. Volunteers are needed (contact Shannon Evers at to volunteer).

A Family Giving letter and donation envelope will be sent out prior to the phone-a-thon and will include Camp Arrowhead in the donation options. The council will send a similar appeal for funds to alumnae and businesses in December. Volunteers can use the Family Giving letter to ask for donations from friends and family also.

More options to be discussed at later meetings.

Next meeting: November 26, 2007, 6:00 p.m.
