Member Shop Fundraising Drive

We've been planning, surveying, and meeting for a long time. Now is the time for action - if the SDFWA Member Shop is to become a reality, we need everyone to participate. We are now raising funds for equipment to furnish the shop. We need money "in the bank" before we can sign a lease or make equipment purchases. We can accept checks, credit card payments, pledges, whatever is most convenient for you. The PayPal donation option will even allow you to make monthly payments.

To encourage and recognize those Members that step up and make a significant donation to the Member Shop Project, we have developed the “Founders Group”. Founding Members will be permanently recognized on a large plaque that will hang in a prominent position in our Shop. Additionally, we have provided certain incentives to reward Founders Group Members donating at various levels. You will find the details of these incentives on the Donation Form page.


To raise the funds required for building the shop space and obtaining equipment, we are asking for donations of $1,000. This level of commitment by the core of our Membership will help us achieve our goals quickly. At the same time, we certainly recognize that many of our Members may not be in a financial position to make a donation of that size. But we also know that if each Member can contribute $500, or even $250, the totals will still add up quickly. 


A donation of this size certainly deserves careful consideration. As you make your decision, please remember the following points. First, as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, donations to SDFWA qualify as tax deductible. Second, as most of us have learned, even major charities burn up an average of over 60 cents of every dollar contributed in overhead expenses. In our case, 100% of your donation to the Member Shop will go towards the shop! Third, we can’t do this without your help. Your generosity will allow us to move ahead and develop a Member Shop that all of us will be proud of! Here is a link to a page with the Member Shop Donation form, including a download link to donate by mail.


You can contact Gary Anderson with any questions by phone, email, or at an SDFWA General Meeting. We want you to be comfortable that your donation is an important investment in the future of our Association.

We need your support now!
