Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Continue:
- SFG's two main revenue streams: Event Fundraisers - Membership Growth / Dues
- Messaging and brand awareness to the community at large
- Increase fundraising
- Grow membership

SFG's COMMUNITY OUTREACH: Participated as the featured "Charity of the Day / Month" with various
organizations, such as the Bradenton Marauders Baseball, Sarasota Farmers Market, etc.
- SFG plans to continue this type of outreach in 2022 via events such as Music On Main, as well as
Guest Speaking at a variety of organized Clubs in the local area.
MEMBERSHIP GROWTH & DUES: For members who could not afford their Annual Dues in 2019 / 2020, SFG
allowed installments so revenue would continue to filter in, and members could continue to participate in all
events / voting.
- SFG also launched "GOOD NEWS" - a quarterly Newsletter which keeps all members up-to-date on events,
volunteering and fundraising.
INCREASE FUNDRAISING: Via fun and interactive in-person events including monthly Happy Hours, as well as:
COMMUNITY PARTNERING: SFG partnered with a few community businesses who donate a portion of their
proceeds for all sales where purchasers use a specific "SFG CODE" at checkout. This provides additional
exposure to new potential members and donors, as well as establishes a third revenue stream.
MESSAGING & BRAND AWARENESS : Continued social media and articles featuring the organization
continued to do so though online social media, in-person events, and both online and print media exposure
featuring the organization. i.e.: https://www.yourobserver.com/lwr-life-fall-2021

- MEMBERSHIP / DUES / DONATIONS
SFG's Communications Committee consists of nearly 20 capable and dedicated volunteers - some who are
marketing and advertising industry professionals.
* SFG's social media messaging has substantially increased:
- Profiles written on each of the twenty 2021 Grant Recipient organizations;
- Established Annual Corporate Sponsor Awards with in-person award presentation to eight 2021 recipients,
with featured profiles published via social media;
- Reminders of donation opportunities, membership and the return of social gatherings.
* E-outreach to SFG's members via our quarterly Good News Newsletter;
* The website "Donate" button has been updated to add smaller more affordable amounts as an option;
* Updating and completing online profiles such as GuideStar and The Giving Partner.
- COMMUNITY PARTNERING: SFG partnered with a few community businesses who donate a portion of their
proceeds, for all sales where purchasers use a specific "SFG CODE" at checkout. This provides additional

SFG will hold its election for Board Officers and some Committee Chairs in Q4 2021.
(Not all Terms expired at the same time)
- Some Terms took effect as at January 1, 2021 and others April 1, 2021.

Several training sessions are part of SFG's transition and on-boarding / process.
Individuals meetings in-person based on personal availability.
Phone calls and electronic communication continues on an as-needed basis.

Results are:
