CDA Sub-committee Volunteer Opportunity


Well, the site-walk of 54 Richardson Rd. went very well last Wednesday, and if all goes well down the road-we could have a viable Dog Park by the middle of 2013. We are now starting to put together a plan for the area we are interested in. We still have a lot of work to do, part of which involves additional fundraising efforts so we can hit the ground running when the time comes to build.

Over the years, I have heard from folks that have experience doing fundraising, and most of the people that get CDA e-mails have been patiently waiting for a way to help. I believe that time is now.
Please reply if you would be interested in joining a Fundraising Sub-committee. The purpose of the sub-committee would be to identify opportunities or methods to raise funds to support the business activities and exchanges of the Association and to take the lead in implementing those fundraising efforts when approved by the Association. All members of the Chelmsford Dog Association, whether on this subcommittee or not, have fundraising responsibilities and do participate in the Association’s efforts.
Tasks include the following, subject to Board approval:
•develop and implement a fundraising plan
•select and implement online fundraising tools
•design and implement a capital campaign
•research and write grant opportunities & applications

The primary focus of the fundraising is for the future Dog Park, and to fund the obligations of the Association (such as fees and taxes, and the costs of running the various events and seminars we sponsor. Once a group of interested applicants has come forward, we can work on more detailed ideas and goals. Our next meeting is Wednesday, June 27, 7PM, at the Adams Library, 25 Boston Rd., Chelmsford.

I look forward to hearing from you, and please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you-
Vivian Merrill, President
Chelmsford Dog Association
