Board Meeting Minutes
Kirk - no problem having “donation” places all over where people can donate
Wants a “passive” fundraising source
“My vision is for people to bring new things in: use Denver Jamgrass’ name to do your other projects and make it good
Link to donations: people will donate if they value it
1. Retooling mission statement
No need to retool it at the moment.
Amy - wants the word support to be in the mission statement
Max - will write up a new mission statement to send out to the board for review
2. Fundraising strategies - or do we even need to fundraise?
Board seemed to decide that for now no active fund solicitation should take place, but we can provide passive ways for people to donate like a Paypal.me or Patreon link
3. Stone Soup album release - fundraiser? Kirk and Max think no
Not a fundraiser: release for free. Youtube and on the website
4. Ben Paley Memorial Musician's Assistance Fund - award for a musician in need - $500 budget - $100 each to applicants
5. T-shirts as fundraiser / promotion -
Amy - order of items: needs to be planned and set out in a document so that we are not crossing the streams. Amy’s suggestion: release the album and the musician’s assistance fund first, allow people the option to purchase T-shirts second.
6. Miscellaneous (open to suggestions)
Kimberly - how to help musicians right now
Setting up a database for live streams - weekly list?
John - Colorado grass chat
Kirk, John and Max - people are not putting in their own info
Denver Jamgrass as a resource on best online streaming stuff - Kimberly idea
In the spirit of helping musicians - what stuff can we put up? Amy - promotion seminar : Kirk - audio for live streaming : Max -
Kirk - we can loan equipment out for people - GrabBag of live audio gear - GREAT IDEA!
