Ken how is it going so far. Should we contact companies for their support and stuff like that?

I wouldn't recommend folks start contacting corporations on their own. There is a science and art to fundraising. We have several board members with considerable fundraising experience. I believe Chuck Spence is the committee chair for raising money.

If you or any other members are interested in helping out, I suggest you contact Chuck through the website and offer your help.

Thanks,
Ken

I want to send $ but need to know how can Canadian supporters send $ ? Are we supposed to mail a cheque to the Canadian office? Do we send in Canadian or U.S. (will determine if we need to send a bank order or a personal cheque)?. Please advise.

Dear Mikey,

As Ken says, corporations should be approached by an official fundraiser. If anyone would like to assist Chuck Spence in fundraising, please contact him. Or, if you work for a corporation that is likely to be helpful, please let him know.

We have at times asked corporations for donations, but for the most part this has not yielded results. Nor have grant applicatons been successful thus far.

Canadian donations can be made out either in Canadian or US dollars, though it is probably easier on this end if it is in US currency.

Well the 'thermometer' on the home page is now reading $5,000 - which, if my sums are right, is a third of the way there.

That's the sort of response that shows we are serious about keeping Male Survivor alive.

Hi. I know its bin a long time since i've posted but i just thought i'd swing by and see what bin going on.
I've bin woking really hard in therapy and its really starting to pay off.
Sorry about not showing my face around here lately but coming here is, to me, some what depressing because its like nerve evoking and pain/guilt inducing because i re-live the sh*t by contantly read and thionk about it causing me to obsess over past memories.
this gets me low and i have trouble fighting it.----sorry if that was over redundent.

Anyway I hope evey one is well and doing OK.

The reason i posted is that i'm in a position to help finacialy but i was wondering if I made a donation could that be applied to a membership as well; or vice versa,--if i paid for a membership would the proceeds contribute to the MALESURVIVOR web site?


I'll try to update yu guys on what i've been up to and my future plans, i'm getting ready to move in December.

well, take care of yur selfs,yur worth it!

It's so good to hear from someone who's passed through MS and gained something from it, I do hope your recovery continues, I'm sure it will.

Your donation in any form will be welcome,and I don't think it makes much difference as to which way you do it, although there will be less administration costs by making a donation I would think.

Dave

How are things going with all of this. I see the donation graph hasn't moved up to much lately. Just curious.
