The Focus on Tomorrow Fundraising Meter comes to life with donations from the WBHS/BTV alumni group. FOT would like to say, “THANK YOU,” to each alumnus that contributed to the movement this week. This generous, financial support will help establish enough capital to host future fundraising events. A couple of events are currently in planning stages, including a fundraising dinner and a concert held on school grounds. Although, some progress was made this week, there is still a long road ahead for the Event Planning Committee. Alumni support is still needed to ensure the organization can cover the costs of the fundraisers. FOT asks that alumni repost the following link on their own Facebook page: http://focus-on-tomorrow.org/contribute/. Asking friends and family members to donate to the cause will help propel FOT forward. The passion and enthusiasm displayed by alumni this week only reinforces the importance for rebuilding the TV Production program.
FOT would like to thank Lucy Pulido-Cloer for contributing the idea of designing a goal meter. Adding a visual element to the organization’s fundraising progress creates a more dynamic, web environment. FOT would like to encourage more ideas like this one from the alumni group. It’s this level of participation that will ensure the success of the mission.
