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
Though we accept gifts year-round, our primary fundraising activity takes place 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 crowd-sourcing 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, but are seeking a grant writer.
