Coordinator, Grassroots Global Justice Alliance
The Resource Mobilization Working Group of the US Social Forum has developed a 3 year plan to raise $1.5 million to address our needs over three phases: Planning – 2006, Implementation – 2007, Follow-up – 2007-2008. We aim to diversify our funding resources as much as possible and are focusing on 4 primary areas:
- Community/Grassroots – Including individual donations, pre-registration and materials sales.
- Major Donors – Those who can give larger amounts or donate on a regular basis.
- Organizational Sponsorships – Groups who will commit to raise up to $7500 per year for 3 years for the USSF.
During 2006, regional forums and meetings will be taking place as well. Each region will be responsible for raising resources for their own events.
Achieving our fundraising goals will help assure a successful and dynamic US Social Forum, so we ask everyone to help out by joining the Resource Mobilization Working Group, raising funds locally, registering early, or making a contribution to the USSF.
