Please join us in this important fundraising venture to keep our beloved project capable of doing its great work. Use the back of this sheet to record pledges from family, friends, coworkers, classmates, and whoever else you can find. Also, consider giving them a copy of our fundraising letter or mail it out to folks.
points to make when talking to people:
1. All pledges above $10 are tax deductible. If the donor would their donation to be tax deductible, please write down their full name and mailing address on your pledge sheet and mark the tax letter column. Once we have your pledge sheet and money we will send a tax deduction form directly to the donor.
2. There is no minimum pledge. If people cannot donate money but still want to help out, suggest that they donate their time by volunteering, donating books, or packing supplies such as old envelopes.
3. People can donate in two ways: 1) per point. If someone pledges 10 cents a point and your final score is 76 they will owe $7.60; 2) flat rate. Anyone is welcome to give us $10 (or any amount) despite your score.
Please make sure all your pledges
(money and sheet) are mailed to or dropped off at either Boxcar Books
or the Pages to Prisoners space, or turned in to Searle or Michael by
