Dear GWI Presidents and CIRs,
The world is affected by the COVID-19 pandemic; there are some injuries as well as some economic effects. During these challenging and uncertain times, we need to share knowledge and experience, including sharing ideas about alternative funding sources during the remainder of the lockdown period as well as post-COVID-19. Graduate Women International (GWI) must build new fundraising strategies and targets.
GWI Vice President Fundraising, Dr. Basak Ovacik, is calling for members to brainstorm together to formulate a COVID-19 and post COVID-19 strategy for funding. The Committee aims is to set goals and identify funding sources and support for GWI.
Establishing an Ad Hoc Fundraising Committee will enhance our friendship and solidarity during these unpredictable times. Under Basak’s leadership, the Committee will identify best practices on fundraising for GWI in the post-COVID-19 world. For example, the Committee will explore regional sponsors/funders with the help of Regional Leaders.
GWI members who have an interest in fundraising, who have fundraising experience and who share the common GWI passion are welcome and encouraged to become a member of the Ad Hoc Committee Fundraising.
We are looking forward to your reply.
The GWI Board of Directors
