The Be Active Donation campaign

written by thorgal67 - 2013/10/02 22:45

During the last General Assembly (GA) we brainstormed about ways to promote BW activities. One of the ideas was to launch a temporary donation campaign, aptly named "Be Active". The money raised (500 euro) would then be used to financially aid local BW activities.

When you log in you will see our donation bar. More information about our donation policy can be found on our donation page .

Once we raise 500 euro the donation bar will be removed and we will send out a Newsletter encouraging members to create activities. The BoD will then select those proposals that meet our Be Active guidelines.

I want to give but i don't want to give my phone number... sorry, but i can't understand why you/they need it...

Sorry for you...

phone number?

Hey frecklegirl,

as far as I know we don't need a phone number when you donate. Could you please tell us if you tried donating through paypal or just with a normal bank transfer? Maybe paypal requires it (although I would find that crazy).

Will you also be fundraising for general expenses soon? or is the only fundraising drive going to be for this be active campaign?

general expenses

@bluedragon: the budget for 2014 is being drafted as we speak and will be presented for approval at the General Assembly (GA) in November.

In the past we have held our fundraising for general expenses around February. Last year it took us about 4 weeks (if I remember well) to raise the 1,260 euro that we needed for general expenses in 2013.

So I would say we will not have a "general expenses" fundraiser in 2013.

Thanks for info Thorgal., I'll probably wait until Feb to donate then.
