Volunteer fundraiser commitment

I was cleaning my workshop files and found this compact, or volunteer fundraiser commitment, I created a few years ago. Feel free to share.

Here’s my volunteer fundraiser commitment.

I will:

  • discover joy in raising money for my favorite cause
  • ask, otherwise I’ll never know
  • rely on my team for advice and support
  • only volunteer for assignments I know I can complete
  • ask for help when I need it, as soon as I need it.
  • take risks and not fear failing
  • remember the words of hockey star Wayne Gretzky: You  miss 100% of the shots you never take
  • send in my notes from all of my meetings and contacts

And, above all, I’ll remember that

  • I don’t have to be perfect, I just have to start!
