Role & Function

The Steering Committee is the chief public / forward-facing fundraising body for the Campaign.  This group is actively engaged in developing and implementing strategies to cultivate and solicit volunteers and donors.  NMDF is looking for people who are recognized and respected in this community, have a history of success and, often have the capacity to make large gifts to the campaign.  It is the group that, by extension, adds credibility to the Campaign.

  • Make a personally meaningful and generous gift – often representing the largest gifts of the Campaign
  • Work under the Board and Campaign Co-Chairs, with the Executive Director, to oversee the fundraising of the Campaign
  • Serve on needed and select Campaign Sub-Committees in support of the fundraising initiatives
  • Provide advice and counsel to leadership and serve as a sounding board for Campaign fundraising activities and functions
  • Help identify, cultivate, and solicit prospective donors – asking prospects to join in making a gift
  • Help develop and implement specific solicitation strategies for individual prospects
  • Personally, solicit gifts for the Campaign
  • Attend Steering Committee meetings and Campaign functions
