o    Event linking/advertising

o    Where appropriate, potential partner sharing

o    Include Amy with any ideas of how she or the foundation office can be of help!

General discussion – There was great discussion on a wide variety of fundraising possibilities, expanding on the prior meetings and getting further details into the events we discussed.  Potter in the park and Coast guard festival are a definite GO.  We worked on some of the details and expanded how the Foundation can assist in making this a better experience and capitalize on the opportunities.  An example includes overcoming security/technology concerns  by having locked down Foundation web devices accessible for booths. For GrandCon we’ll need to come up with a few ways to propose improving the gain for our volunteer time/effort.  The game day discussion had a wide variety of ideas – including having it at another location, better integration of eSports, improvements in fundraising.  Much of the conversation also centered around adding a new targeting a audience –families with one or more individuals who like the game, rather than just the more predominate high school/college age individuals.


We are going to try and start having many months with a fundraiser and a greater number of volunteers.  Some events include:

-          Panel on streaming (game focused)

-          eSports college competition

-          High school competition

-          Dice promo at certain events

-          Including miracle network kids and their stories at select events


Jen introduced the idea of creating committees specific to our favorite gaming type – currently board games, RPG, and video games to advise and organize based on their passions.


Next meeting May 17th at The Comic Signal
