@Roboto asked me about fundraising stuff as they are very interested in aligning a number of NB activities with the fundraising mission.
I told them I’d send them on some important documents. then I went looking for the documents. And they are in a few difference places.
You can help now by helping collect, categorize, and placing the documentation in a better way so more people can read and help. This will also help everyone familiarize themselves with the documents.
The Fundraising team has spend a ton of time creating and editing documentation, creating surveys, collecting and analyzing results, doing grant research, and it’s all collected in these documents.
The places are:
- Trello, the fundraising board cards, archived and current (best)
- slack pinned to fundraising-wg
- There’s some on the wiki as well. (worst)
These pages aren’t even linked (i was supposed to do that)
- This page was superceded by Trello
The fundraising is burnt the fuck out for many reasons. But anyone who wants to pick it up needs to read to catch up. I’m going to be very frank with you, I’m not answering to anyone if they don’t start helping and get themselves up to speed. They are wasting the money we spent by not using what we have gained.
I’m available to help but i can barely look at it without thinking of the shit I had to wade through the past 6 months, let alone people thinking I have to stand in front of them when they can’t get behind the team. I’m trying to not do the thing were someone with information walks away from Noisebridge just because one noisebridger walked over them. Help me out.
So thank you @Roboto for hearing my frustrations with this and volunteering immediately to help. I am here to help you for certain. The critical documentto read first is the case statement.
It’s on the trello board if you scroll to the right in the “Important Documents and Notes” section. This is probably the best organized place.
The rest there are also good to read.
