Seeking volunteers: Fundraising and Media Relations Committees

MVLA Scholars Community,

We have been working for almost 20 years to help make college a reality for, now, hundreds of students. There are still more students that we want to help and we need to expand our funding. We are establishing a fundraising committee and a media relations committee to help accomplish this. Please read through our job descriptions and contact Nancy Strom if you are interested in joining our fun and ambitious group of volunteers.

Fundraising Committee

Seeking two chairs and several committee members:

  • Work to reinforce and cultivate our relationships with existing donors. Including individuals and corporations. Determine what it is that the current donors care about and use that as a platform for future efforts with that group. Find ways to celebrate our donors & increase our involvement with them.
  • Identify new ways to reach out to individuals, including a way to identify them
  • Develop and implement a plan for reaching local small companies (i.e. the LAEF Realtors connection)
  • Develop and implement a plan for reaching large corporations
  • Set fundraising goals
  • Communicate with Media Relations and Board
  • Meet 1-2x per month
  • One year commitment to start
  • Fundraising chairs attend monthly MVLA Scholars board meetings


Media Relations committee
