Why does VAST need a “fundraiser”?
VAST seeks to supplement its income so that membership dues can be kept at a minimum. Our dues alone do not cover VAST’s administrative expenses. Each year VAST solicits local businesses and individuals to “sponsor” a page of the calendar to pay for production costs. Many sponsors are repeat sponsors (please thank them when you see them!).
As a charitable 501(c)(3) organization VAST can seek Grants for specific items for its needs from grant dispensing organizations, and it has done so on many occasions. One question asked in the grant writing process is “What does VAST do to involve the community in raising funds for VAST?” Our calendar sales fulfill this request.
