Expectations and skills:
Members of the PRERI fund raising committee are directly responsible for ideating, planning, organizing and executing fund raising events for the express purpose of raising funds to support the mission of PRERI, managing memberships, conducting membership drives and annual appeals and, in some cases, soliciting corporate sponsorships.
Members are also expected to be able and willing to attend multiple events and support the organization through their time, effort, networking connections and skills. Members will be called upon to solicit donations of money, goods or services to support PRERI donation drives, events, etc.
It is the expectation of the PRERI Board of Directors that the fundraising committee should execute two major events (Spring and Fall) for PRERI each fiscal year (July to July), one major raffle, and participate in several other smaller events, e.g., school carnivals, festivals , etc. throughout the course of the year.
Committee members should have a strong work ethic, enjoy working in and around the public and having a fun time, as well as being dependable, self motivated and reliable.
The fund raising committee has no functional direct contact with our horses, although it should be noted that events may be conducted with or around horses. Members of the fund raising committee do not need any horseback riding or horse handling experience.
It is not necessary to have any previous committee service experience, just a willingness to learn.
