WEB Message: Fund-Raising vs. The DF - April 2014
I want to relay to you my first lesson in being a Quester - do not underestimate the determination of a few motivated people. The lady I call “The Pusher” in my chapter is one of The Determined Few, or TDF.
TDFs exist in all walks of life and are responsible for nothing less than the success of mankind today! Without them, the rest of us would sit happily in our ruts, but they will not allow it! The more vast the project, the better they like it! They push, they shove, they dream, they schmooze.
When undertaking a P&R project, the first question would be, “How much will it cost?” Right? But not for TDFs. Their first question is, “Should this be done?” Reasonably, the second question should be, “Can we expect to be able to raise that much money within a certain timeframe?” But not for TDFs. They don’t ask that question at all. They assume that it’s doable. “Why on earth not? Let’s get started. What shall we do after that?” sayeth the TDFs.
Every single Quester knows that we are a service organization, and as such, we do projects that are important to us. We donate our own money, time, and energy to accomplish the goal. Unfortunately, sometimes the project is bigger than our pockets.
Don’t let that stop you. Apply for grants. Hold a special fundraiser. Accumulate funds. Assume you will succeed, and eventually you will. Remember, TDFs push until great things get done.
Be one of The Determined Few!
Questers RESTORE! Questers PRESERVE! Questers COLLECT! Questers SHARE!
