Committee Spotlight: Fundraising

The WTS-Boston Fundraising committee is responsible for raising funds to help subsidize program cost and support local scholarships for upcoming women in transportation. Essentially, this important committee helps the local organization carry out its mission to promote women in the industry.

Fundraising Committee members support the goals of the committee by speaking to companies and agencies about the benefits of sponsorship; coordinating sponsor benefits such as the Executive Sponsor banner production; assisting the Special Projects Committee with complimentary sponsor attendance at certain events; and displaying sponsor and agency marketing materials at luncheons and other events. Late in the year, the Committee begins contacting existing sponsors to request sponsorship renewal. Committee members collect sponsor donations, keep track of sponsor companies and agencies, and create a Sponsor Board that is displayed at luncheons and other special events.  This year the Fundraising Committee, working together with the Membership Committee, is excited to be involved in coordinating a special sponsor “give back” event to thank all sponsors for their support.

We are always looking for fresh faces to join us to help share the benefits of sponsorship. This committee often meets via conference call and many of the tasks can conveniently be performed in your own office. If this sounds interesting to you, please contact any one of the current Fundraising Committee Members to learn more about what we do!
