Matching fund: we’re halfway to our goal!
Some high-priority donor engagement is still ongoing.
Generally, brought in significantly more this month than previous years.
Gala planning is ongoing
Scheduled for Giving Tuesday, Dec 3rd.
Will has reached out to various local publications and sources to promote the event.
Event is listed and pre-selling tickets.
Show is being advertised on Instagram.
Started working with a grant writer from Krebs.
We’re applying for 3/4 grant applications.
Some are project-based, but aligned with existing station operations.
28 day social campaign is being prepared — will also launch Dec 3rd.
Also, we’ll be drafting a budget for 2020.
We’ll kick off a dedicated board recruitment effort in early 2020.
Mostly doing infrastructure updates
Need to prioritise projects for 2020
Self-hosted analytics isn’t going great, will ask community for recommendations
We should review our stream-hosting options as the current contract is up.
No MUSH 2020 news yet.
New contacts for the Ferry Building in SF.
Contacts at Salesforce Park to pursue too.
We’ll pursue all of these and likely tie them to grant applications.
Flagging: We’re out of storage space, so might need to start renting a storage unit, especially if we invest in a Live performance kit.
Identify possible large donors ($1000/$500/$250) to tie into Giving Tuesday.
Gift cards etc. for the event.
