    October General Meeting: Fundraising is Organizing

    What: RSVP to join us for our monthly General Meeting on Tuesday, October 16thThis month will be a Grassroots Fundraising Training! More details to come.

    When: Schmoozing and snacks 5:30 - 6 pm. The meeting will start promptly at 6:15 and go until 8.

    Where: **The location will again be the Mondry Building at 15000 W 10 Mile Rd in Oak Park.**

    Who: Current DJJ leaders. *If you're new to DJJ, please join us at 5:30 so we can orient you before the meeting.*

    This year's end-of-year fundraising campaign will empower leaders to plug into our grassroots fundraising work at one of four levels:

    1. Liking, sharing, and commenting on fundraising-related social media
    2. Making a casual fundraising ask of folks in your personal network to give to DJJ via Facebook or email
    3. Being featured in our fundraising-related social media as well as doing the above, and supporting fellow DJJ leaders to do level 1
    4. Raising $500 between Thanksgiving and December 31st

    No matter what level you choose, you're encouraged to come to this training. We'll do a 101 on class/personal relationship to money, capitalism, philanthropy, and why fundraising IS organizing, and why values-based, crowdfunded, grassroots fundraising is so important to DJJ. Folks who commit to raising $500 at year-end will be invited to an additional training but this first one is open to all.
