In accordance with our agency strategic plan, the Community Crossroads Board of Directors established a Development Committee charged with the responsibility of providing a stronger, more diverse base of financial support and resources for our agency and the individuals & families we serve. Through the coordinated efforts of our fundraising and development committee members, Community Crossroads has strengthened existing fundraising efforts and initiated new development activities.
Development funds consist of revenue raised through both planned events & gifts and are administered through the Fundraising Grant Committee and as authorized by the Development Committee.
These sources of revenue make a BIG difference in the lives of many individuals and their families. The majority of Community Crossroads’ funding is restricted to the provision of specific services; however our development funds provide flexible dollars that enable us to better respond to the needs of individuals and families as well as to address agency needs that are not funded or not funded adequately.
The Fundraising Committee continues to play a vital role in assisting individuals and families. The committee meets quarterly to review grant applications. The committee is comprised of members representing each of the individual activities. This includes the annual golf challenge, kid’s carnival and the silent auction.
Every spring the Fundraising Committee grants scholarships to high schools in the towns we serve. These scholarships are awarded to a graduating senior pursuing a degree in human services or a student who has provided support to an individual(s) with special needs or demonstrated advocacy in support of disability issues. The amounts of the scholarships that are awarded are $750 per student.
The ever-increasing needs of individuals and families within our communities, maintenance level funding and rising service cost make Community Crossroads fundraising more essential than ever.
