Survey says . . . THF Fundraising

Every September the Board of Directors and Associates of The Haiku Foundation are sent a survey. Their responses help to guide our growth and direction. We’d like to broaden our input, and so we’ll be asking you to respond to a series of questions, one per week, over the next half-year. Your replies will be weighed in our assessment of our performance.

Today’s question: Fundraising

We continue our matching grant program between Thanksgiving and St. Nicholas Day. We also target National Haiku Poetry Day in April in seeking donations.. We have gradated incentive items for different donation levels. We don’t plan subsequent crowdsourcing programs such as the IndieGoGo project held in March-June 2012, and rely on general donations for the bulks of our funds. We do not have a dedicated fundraiser within our corporate structure at this time.

Please assess how well The Haiku Foundation is delivering on this topic. Indicate your assessment of our performance to date by choosing one of the options:

Excellent

Good

Fair

Poor

Abandon

Please feel free to add additional comments. Thank you in advance for your consideration, and for helping us make The Haiku Foundation a better resource.

  1. I’d just like to send my heartfelt thanks to the poets who make the matching fund available. Let’s face it, if THF wasn’t an excellent organization, I doubt there would be many who would do such a thing for very long. For those of us who are not in a postiion to be so generous and devoted, these dedicated souls keep things going.

    As for me, I find that the dedication period comes at the holiday season when there are so many demands upon us for funds of all kinds….I have yet to be able to contribute during one of those times. But each year I live in hopes… next year may be better. But the debt of gratitude I feel for those who provide the matching funds makes it possible for you to be here till I can. In gratitude, Merrill
