Slide1

AX Tennessee Delta ChapterCarson-Newman University

Louisville, KentuckyAlpha Chi National Convention

8 April 2017

Making a “Killing”

with Fundraising

Slide2

No cash flow.

A sad situation for us.

Slide3

Dr. Ellen Millsaps, patron saint of the C-N Book Fair

In Dr. Millsaps’ benevolent regime, we relied primarily

on Scholastic book fairs as

fundraisers.

We followed in her footsteps

after she retired.

That changed in 2010.

Slide4

Excellent organization, but their policies

changed gradually in ways that affected our profits.

Slide5

Books? Yes!

So, we desperately sought replacement fundraisers.

Money? No.

Slide6

UnhappyFundraisers

Jail-a-thon

Monkey-on-your back

Photo-Fest

Selling Food

Or Knick-Knacks

Slide7

Jail-a-thon…

Students press humorous

charges against each other.

Alpha Chi “bailiffs” come arrest

the target and take them to jail in theactivity center.They could pay a fine to get out of jail by matching the donation of the

original student placing the charges.

Two problems?

(1)

Everyone hated it.

(2)

Other groups had similar fundraisers.

Slide8

Monkey-on-your-back…

Similar idea to Jail-a-thon: Students

make donation to have a stuffedmonkey with Velcro arms attached to target.

Targets required to wear the monkey aroundcampus until they raise matching donations.Once they raise the funds, they can select a

new monkey-recipient.Two problems?

(1)

Everyone hated it (again).

(2)

Monkeys mysteriously ended up in trash

….

Slide9

Photo-Fest

Slide10

Brainstorming Session I

What does not work? Why?

(We’ll brainstorm fundraisers that did work well in a bit….)

Slide11

Survey of Students….

Our answer to that?

They didn’t want objects, food, or knick-knacks.

They wanted memorable experiences.

They wanted something they could dowith their friends.

They wanted their “money’s worth” in

terms of time spent having fun.

Slide12

The Mastermind Fundraiser

We would give our students an on-going,

challenging game.

They would get a chance to play spy.

They would get a chance to hunt (and

be hunted by) their friends.

They would be “Mastermind Spies!”

“An action-packed spy game of outsmarting other players.”

Slide13

What you need….

Bulk ping pong balls

($0.14 each)

Slide14

Or alternatively….

Cheap squirt guns

($0.55 each)

Emily Phillips, C-N’s version of Kim Possible, models her stylish weapon.

Slide15

Add poison traps….

“poison card”

($0.04)

Slide16

and clever bomb cards….

“bomb card”

($0.04)

Slide17

Finally, secret AX codes….

This card prevents cheating

.($0.01)

Slide18

You take all these items….

The ping pong balls are now officially Alpha Chi “death globes.”

Slide19

And put them in Top Secret

spy packets for players. You sell top secret packets.

($5.00 each, i.e. $4.50 profit.)

Slide20

Audience Demonstration

:1. Sign up players.

2. Record their secret code numbers and email info.

3. Your AX officers email each player the names of two targets on campus to “assassinate.”

4. The player chooses a means to dispatch victims and tracks them down or lays traps for them.

Ah, the thrill of the hunt!

Slide21

4. Players who “die” give their assassins their secret code number. The assassins e-mail “Alpha Chi Intelligence” that number to confirm the kill.

5. Then, you assign the player a new target.

6. This continues until the last two players left must hunt each other. The last one standing wins!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it….

Slide22

Tips & Pitfalls: You must advertise widely.

Slide24

Slide25

More Tips & Pitfalls:

Security and Safety

Talk with campus security and coordinate with them.

Never use any game props that could be mistaken for a real weapon.Have students sign consent forms.

Rules should include “safe-zones” to avoid disrupting campus.

Slide26
