giving financially to make ministry possible
UCM runs on a small budget funded primarily by students, but each staff member raises their entire salary on their own - and each has to devote significant time to fundraising. One of our primary goals as an association is to allow staff to spend more time with students and less time fundraising. Most of the staff are only at 60% of their income for the year. As alumni, we want to give back to the staff at UCM not just as a token of our appreciation of the staff but because we believe in the work that they are doing, even as new staff join the team. One-time donations are appreciated, but we want to encourage ongoing giving, and giving out of faith.
SO, WE ARE STARTING A FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN!
Not to raise a certain amount of money, but to raise 25 new sponsors that are committing to supporting a staff member on a monthly basis.
How it will work:
· Go to: http://www.ubc.ucmonline.ca/give.html
· Choose your donation designation (Our current staff members are Diane Buermans, Dave Clark, Alba Zhou, Arthur Howard, Jake Tucker, and Kieran Nirula, our new apprentice!).
· The staff member will be informed of a new monthly supporter and then we will add a number to our tally. Your donation will remain anonymous to the alumni association.
Did you previously support a staff member and they have moved on? New staff have joined the team and are in need of support.
