What happened to all the donors this month? Under 15% donated so for in August.. In July there was a mad rush for all to get a DONOR status due to a RED HEADLINE and every body thought the green card is hidden there. Come August and all the DONORS are not to be seen anywhere.

I was a regular donor and was changed to Sr. Member as did not sign in for monthly contributions. Did many signed in for monthly contributions ONLY for ONE month?????

I think IV need to change it’s policy of donation on Issue Based instead of monthly contributions. I am and will be available to contribute for Issue Based instead of Monthly contributions and just to get a DONOR STATUSr.

Any thoughts as to how can we improve our donations??

Let me know your address and list of food items, I promise to send them to you ASAP but can not assure you a GC which is beyond my limits.

Wish you get your GC next week.

rameshvaid,

Thanks for your contribution, if you did in the past. We appreciate your perspective about issue based contribution, but in the real world of advocacy that is not how it works. So that's why we usually do not request for issue based contributions.

Also, 15% contribution that you see is the measure of new contributions. Hope you understand that with the bill being drafted as we speak, even if we want we do not have the luxury to continue to debate and mold as per every request on the forum. Its entirely up to you to decide how you would like to invest your time and energy. For us, we will do everything possible to make it happen regardless of your contribution. As you would know, the resources IV has is the measure of the importance of our issues for the decision makers.

All the best,

All the best,

Thanks for taking note of my post. I am totally in agreement with your views. I wish and want IV a BIG success for mutual benefits. I know we need lot of money and efforts to meet our common goal. We by starting a thread only for DONORS and with sharing the info only with the DONORS have lost many big donors, I had seen in the past donating money. We need to find out a way where it is not a burden on any one to donate and all have the same access to the info the DONORS have. For some even $ 25.00 can be a big money depending upon individuals personal circumstances. I share your concerns in toto that you do not want to post all the info on this forum for various reasons but I am sure there should be a way to e-mail everyone via mass mailing to share the info. I also know this might take lot of efforts on your part but am sure there might be many here those are ready to spare some time including there spouces, those can help in doing some office work if need be.

What we can do is ask every one to doante ONLY DOLLAR per month and new memebrs signing up for the 1st time to contributr $ 25.00 one time fee. I am sure most will agree here and will sign up for DOLLAR ONE.

Their might be many others with better ideas on this forum and lets have a common opinion as to how we should proceed in future so that we have enough money. $ 1000.00 or 2000.00 a month is not going to help.


Best..

I am not sure that most will agree to donate DOLLAR ONE. There are lot of people with mindset why should I pay...some one will do that. Most of the time its not money, its the mindset is the problem.

Why dont you donate money to me and I can decide what I would like to eat.
Donating leftovers shows what kind of donor you are...

For your kind of left over personality...left over is more than enough.

Let's not be sarcastic and deviate ourselves from the main issue. If you have some better ideas let's have a debate/discussions on that.

Your personality does not even meet standard for left-over.
Sorry to say that.
Buy you can always improve yourself if there is a room for it!

its cheap and something is common in the food and U
that is the word "CHEAP".
Let me know where to send $$ so that you can buy dog food, but this donation will be a reimbursement on presenting the reciepts.
