IAIP WEARABLES AS A FUNDRAISER 0 B. Blimline We have used the wearables as  local advertisement and pride of IAIP.  We ordered the jackets (as seen in group photo) from Lands End in WI, and they did the embroidery for us, too. We didn’t do as  fundraiser, we only charged cost because we thought it was important for our local members to have IAIP logo wear.  Average cost per jacket was around $35-$40    Something else we have done at a local level: There is a gentleman in our area who is a disabled  vet who does embroidery work. We brought the IAIP logo to him for setup. Then, each member can buy their own piece of clothing, and bring it to him to embroider. The cost is minimal – about  $6 per item! The benefit to doing this is each member can pick their own style, size, color  of wearable. We encouraged members to do this, because then it would be something they would really wear. The hot pink nylon running jacket is an example of this.  We encourage members to wear their IAIP wearables to community events, meetings, out and about. Amazing how many people will ask about IAIP based on  seeing the wearables.  We are walking advertisements for our association.  A fundraiser was created by the MO council for the Region V 2017 Conference. We promoted on Region V facebook and Natl blast email.

Legacy Foundation Fundraiser Idea 0 V. Rivas In the past, our local association (Contra Costa Chapter of IAIP; Region VIII) has had successful Fashion Show fundraisers in partnership with various local women’s clothing stores. We would rent a venue, arrange for a brunch and provide models who would model the latest fashions of the chosen clothing store, narrated by a store representative. We would sell tickets and invite members, friends and family to our event. This year, the women’s clothing store, Talbot’s of Walnut Creek, came to us with a unique opportunity. Part of Talbot’s mission was to support local non-profit organizations and since we have worked with them in the past for our Fashion Show fundraisers, they approached us to do another Fashion Show, with a ‘twist’. They would host the Fashion Show in their store, design and send out invitations, including a flyer for our website, provide light refreshments and all we had to do was provide the models, attend the event and shop in their store the day of the event. They pledged 10% of the total sales from the event to our non-profit, The Legacy Foundation. Talbot’s donated on our behalf to The Legacy Foundation, supporting one of our Association’s mission of education and Talbot’s mission of local organization support. A win/win for us both!

Easy, no fuss savings for dues 0 K. Cameron Unfortunately we are hearing more and more that members are losing their employer's support and it is very difficult to pay the out of pocket money for both National and local dues.  Well, here is a simple no fuss savings plant to help you save. The 52 Week Savings Challenge is based on 52 weeks in a year and increments of .25 per week. You start off week one by putting $ .25 in an envelope, jar, can or savings account, whatever works for you.  Then $ .50 on week two, $.75 on week three and so on until the very last week you put $13.00 into the savings.  You will have saved a total of $344.50, enough to cover your National and local dues.  The fun thing is you can start this at any time and still have a savings. You can also do the plan backwards as well by starting of with $13.00 and reducing each week by $.25.  Spreadsheets attached for $.25 increments as well as $1.00 a week increments.
