Fundraising Committee

The Fundraising Commitee is an important dimension of the Chapter - bringing in over a third of our budget. We are looking for volunteers who like to connect with people and have a passion for green building to be part of this great committee!

 

This Committee is specifically responsible for working with the Board of Directors, Chapter staff and other committees to seek grants and sponsorships to help sustain the Chapter. The committee will work closely with Chapter sponsors to foster long term relationships and ensure sponsor needs are met. There are many ways sponsoring partners can benefit from connecting with us: strengthening their brand with key stakeholders, gaining exposure to potential staff recruits, and participating in our advocacy work on behalf of the green design, energy efficiency, and healthy buildings sectors.
 

We have an ambitious plan to grow our fundraising efforts by 25% in 2015. We are evolving the relationships we have with major sponsoring firms to attempt to find more Platinum ($10,000) and Gols ($5000) sponsors. There will be many opportunities for organizations to participate at lower levels, by contributing $1000 or $2,500. We especially want to reach out to a broader ecosystem of support. If you work for a firm that is interested in engaging with more green building professionals, contact us! We are looking to triple the number of sponsoring organizations that partner with the USGBC in Massachusetts. A lot of people can participate in this outreach effort. It will be fun and a great opportunity to network into the industry.

 

Please contact the Chapter if you are excited about becoming engaged with Chapter fundraising efforts.
