Arrow Monthly recurring contributions signups - Marathon.

With CIR in the horizon (as early as next week), IV needs all the funds it can get to lobby for its members. With that in mind, I am starting this thread (just like the one we had a couple of months ago).

I just contributed an one-time payment of $50. I will make another contribution of $250 if the other members can bring this marathon total to $20,000 or more. (Even though this is no match to the challenge that was posed by Anurakt in the earlier marathon).

Please contribute generously as this might be THE ONE. Please post the same in this thread to encourage others.

Again, thanks a bunch to the IV core group for their efforts.

Thanks.

Thanks Sunny.

The marathons help, but we have started recurring contributions exactly so that we dont have to start marathons (fundraising drives) again and again.

Fundraising drives are unpredicatable and funds come in spurts. With recurring contributions, IV core can forecast the future funds based on how many people have signed up recurring contribution (subscription) per month.

So please consider signing up for recurring contributions instead of making one-time payments.

Most organizations like ours have recurring membership dues or such ways to raise funds in an orderly, predictable and uniform manner.

So I have changed the thread title to "Monthly recurring contributions signups - Marathon." Hope you dont mind.

Thank you for the thread. It is very important for us to have enough resources to go all out and get the work done. We struggle every month with funding drives and surviving on such campaigns. We need more members signing up for recurring contributions so that we can work more effectively. We need some active members on the forum to run this thread effectively. Neelu, amitjoey, paskal, mjdup, macaca et al do jump in.

In the past, whenever such threads were started with good intensions, some miscreants posted offensive or negative comments on such threads and killed such efforts. With CIR coming very soon, we expect several such people coming on our site everyday and causing nuisance. This is a reminder and a warning to anyone attempting to kill such effort. Any such post will be deleted and the poster will be banned without notice.

One benefit to people signing up: We will be sending updates that we may not be putting on our website for public. Hope this serves as an incentive.

Please contribute, guys. This is the need of the hour. A one time donation is good if you feel comfortable doing that, but recurring is the best and it will go a long way.
Comming months are the most important for us, let us attack with a big armor. IV should have the funds we need now.

Default Its finally here

We need all the possible support and funds now. This is going to be the year we make it through. Please signup for recurring contributions. We should strive for at the very least 1000 members signed up for monthly recurring contributions......Let's get the count rolling

If you want anything, there is a price to pay. If you want relief this year, you need to contribute. Some of us think just sending 3-4 emails to senators and 3-4 emails to friends stuck in retrogression will be enough. But if you dont contribute monetarily how will we raise the funds?.

IV is 9000 members strong and counting more, but funds wise we have only 200 people contributing every month. The real work is to meet the lawmakers and raise money for lobbying. If you can do both, great!!. If not atleast contribute money.

Hope members understand how important this effort is. I tried posting something so that people realize the kind of mess we are going to be in if we are unable to get something done this year. Lobbyists are not running a charity. It is business for them and they allocate their time and resources accoring to our spending capacity. This is the least each member can do by signing up for contributions so that we dont have to come back every month asking for contributions. We would rather spend our time on other IV efforts.

Default PAPPU : please make a catchy link on the top of the page

Link can inform about " CIR IN SENATE " kind of headline. Once it is done, people like me can activate people to visit our site & will contribute.

As I requested earlier, we need to create excitement & I think current CIR proceedings can generate excitement.

Thanks
