The Fine Art of T Scott Stromberg

T Scott is a local artist with a heart to raise money for World Missions. Last year, in an effort to raise money for the Frisco Bible Church building fund, he auctioned off his painting Atonement. Due to the popularity of the painting he decided to have it created as a print. There are currently three churches (Frisco Bible Church, Fellowship of Frisco and Trinity Valley Church) sharing in this effort with 50% of profits from the print sales going to World Missions. For more information you can visit his web site at http://www.tscottstromberg.com.

 

Outreach Sunday

The Brotherhood of St. Andrew at St. Vincent's host a breakfast on the first Sunday of the month with the proceeds benefiting the Malawi Famine Relief fund.

This is a wonderful way to promote fellowship, a gentle reminder of our less fortunate friends in need, and raising much needed cash.

 

Fund Raising Ideas

The following list presents fund raising ideas pulled together by Barbara Hautanen who has many years of fund raising experience in support of the Youth on Mission activities.

  • Dinner with speaker
  • Dinner with program put on by mission team/Speaker
  • Dinner/Auction with speaker
    • Slave auction
    • Live auction with donated items
    • Silent auction with donated items
  • If you choose to have a dinner, always cover the cost of the food with pre-sold tickets. This way you will know how many to expect and you will not lose money on food.
  • It is much less time consuming to have a local restaurant cater your event.
  • Invite a speaker with a heart for mission. Ask God to help you discern whom you should ask.
  • Plastic is good – no washing!
  • Involve the team members in serving.
  • Everyone needs to be prepared to talk about the upcoming trip in case they are asked.
  • Intercessory Prayer letters. Send to friends, neighbors, church members explaining what your plans are and asking them to pray for you and your team. This would be one way for those people that have a heart for mission, but cannot go on the trip themselves, to be involved. Always ask for a donation.
  • Follow up with presentation when you return home from the mission trip.
  • Sometimes big corporations will match your funds raised up to a certain dollar amount. Make some calls.
  • Have fun through all phases of the activity.
  • Pray!

Black Tie Dinner and Auction

Each year St. Vincent's School organizes a very elegant night out that is fun and results in major fund raising. Their main focus is raising money for investment in the school but also share a portion of the proceeds with mission outreach programs such as the St. Vincent's Vision Clinic, La Gran Familia, and the Cooks Children's Medical Center Emergency Fund.

This is an event that many people look forward to eagerly for a chance to dress up and feel good about spending money on a worthy cause.
