Donaldson, Carla, Comp.; Smith, Ruth Mercedes, Comp.
Compiled by the Commission on Small and/or Rural Colleges of the American Association of Community Colleges, this document provides over 100 tips for saving money and suggestions for fundraising activities for community college practitioners across the nation. Ideas cover such topics as reducing staff and operational costs, innovative fundraising events, and community participation in college operations. For each idea, the name, community college, address, and phone number of a contact person is provided. Sample tips include the following: (1) using chili cookoffs, golf and tennis tournaments, raffles, and auctions to raise money; (2) creating an investments committee composed of local bankers and financial advisors; (3) holding luncheons with the college president to raise funds with targeted professional groups; (4) energy conservation programs, including the use of energy management systems, natural gas-powered electricity generators, more efficient light bulbs, and weather stripping; (5) contracting with local businesses to provide food, maintenance, security, and bookstore services; (6) staggering student support services to expand hours while keeping payroll at the same level; and (7) developing partnerships with local businesses, hospitals, and public organizations to share program costs.
