        Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship 2009
        @ the University of Virginia
        October 17th, 2009
                                   Vision & Ideas for Raising Money

Objective
Raise awareness, money, and prayer support for Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship at the University of Virginia


Goals
10 people gather at least 10 pledges for $2 a mile and then walk 5 miles. That’s $10 per person X 10 signatures =
$100 per participant. This is an estimated $1000 per core group.


Promotion
• If you are a part of a church at home them if you can raise money and promote the walk-a-thon there.


• Ask family & friends from home to support you. Being with vision casting: tell them why Chi Alpha is needed at UVA,
  how God has used Chi Alpha in your life and THEN ask about having them support you for 5 miles.


• Go over sign up sheet to see who is interested. Pray over their involvement and pledges. Consider a call to thank
  them for their support. Be sure to encourage supporters that God is using there money to reach students; this is
  one way they can be involved in ministry they may not be able to otherwise



Brainstorming Ideas
Most of the time, coming up with names to approach for pledges doesn’t come naturally. This will help jog your brain.
As you read the list, think of people who fit the category and write names on the back.


1. Relatives (think through your family tree).


2. Neighbors (past, present, moved away, etc.).


3. Church Relationships (current home church, former church(es), church members who may have moved away,
people listed in church directories).


4. Work Contacts (former/current employers, employees, salesman, mechanics, customers, etc.).



Frequently Asked Questions

    1.   What if I don’t raise 100 dollars? Am I still allowed to walk? Yes, please raise as much as you can. 100
         is the goal, but if you cannot raise that much please still come spend time walking & praying for the university!
         (& yes, you can still eat lunch ;) )
    2.   Can I raise MORE than 100 dollars? Yes definitely. Remember – the core group with the most money
         raised will get 500 dollars toward the spring retreat!
    3.   Who do they make checks out to? Make checks payable to “Chi Alpha”.
    4.   When is the money due? Turn in your money and last 2 sheets of your packet to your core group
         representative the day of the event; they then will turn in your core group’s forms & money all together at the
         walk-a-thon! (This means you will collect the money WHEN people sign up).
    5.   What about my family? Your family can definitely walk & eat lunch (both or either one is fine). We are
         excited to meet them!
