Every year, each club member contributes a small agreed-upon sum to our Scholarship Trust Fund in lieu of major fundraising activities.
Throughout the year we do small fundraisers within our club to support a community cause or to cover our in-club expenses such as rent for our meeting facilities. A group of members who call themselves the Artisans Group donate their skills and time to make exceptional handmade products which they sell from time to time at general meetings donating all profits to the Club. We also have occasional 50-50 draws. Participation in such fundraisers is completely voluntary.
We added to our club coffers the last three years by selling ½ lb. packs of a delicious fair-trade coffee from Zimbabwe. This project also contributed to the education of Zimbabwe children, because the owner/grower gives 10% of all his profits to local schools.
