Guidelines for launching a Hardship Fund-raising Campaign
In addition to a donation to a CLA member in need from a CLA Endowment Benevolent Fund, the Endowment Committee will launch a program within its membership to solicit donation for the members.
1. Receive a request…
If request is from someone other than the proposed recipient the CLA office will contact the recipient , explain the assistance campaign and gather the facts, including permission to launch the campaign. If request is from the recipient then we will gather facts and explain the assistance campaign. The application will be reviewed and a determination will be made. We will then notify the applicant of the decision.
2. CLA would then launch the Fundraising Campaign.
