Annual dues are insufficient to meet normal operating expenses. Membership dues are usually kept at a minimum; so as not to prohibit anyone from participating. The Fundraising Committee helps raise the necessary funds to make the work of the LFRW possible.
The Committee is consulted when the President and the Treasurer prepare the annual budget. The Committee proposes creative ideas and presents these ideas to the LFRW Executive Committee for approval.
