The ISPRS Foundation (TIF) seeks volunteers for its Fund-Raising Committee

The ISPRS Foundation (TIF) is a public charity formed to administer an extensive and broadly-based international program that, through the raising of funds, shall provide grants, scholarships, awards, training supplies and other forms of scientific assistance to qualified individuals and organizations who are pursuing and/or applying knowledge for advancing the sciences and technologies associated with the disciplines embodied by the ISPRS, especially to support those in developing countries and regions. See http://www.isprs.org/foundation/foundation/default.aspx for more details.

The biggest challenge for most non-profits is to raise sufficient funds to accomplish their goals. TIF wants to grow so that it can offer assistance to more individuals and organizations from more countries. In order to address this effectively and directly, TIF is making changes to its committee structure and is forming a Fund-Raising Committee. We are looking for volunteers to join this committee! You need to be excited by what ISPRS is doing and must identify enthusiastically with TIF’s goals. You should have a large network of contacts, including people at high levels in organizations who may be willing to give funds to TIF, if they are approached in a suitable and informative fashion. You should be energetic, imaginative, and willing to engage with potential donors as an ambassador of TIF. You must be able to bounce back if an organization is reluctant! We are looking for committee members from all over the world. If you are interested, please contact Stewart Walker, Chair of the Board of Trustees, at foundationchair@isprs.org. Thank you.
