Our project goal was to collaborate and organize a fundraiser that was aimed to raise money for the Brown County Community Gardens Program for the creation of an endowment account. I was apart of the Research and Resource Development team, with Virginia Turner. Our team’s goal was to create research briefs to enhance the fundraising ability of both the UW-Extension and our Professional Writing class. The writing that was done our group was the main resource for this project. It provided essential facts in the creation of the Sponsor Donor packet that was presented to local organizations. The $2,000 initial goal of our project was reached and the donations are still coming in! The foundation created by my team and those who partook in this project created bodies of work that set this program up for success in the years to come.
