Dedicated volunteers will go head-to-head this March to see who can raise the most money for the Jewish Federation of the Lehigh Valley’s 2017 Campaign for Jewish Needs. The volunteers will compete in teams and the winning team will get to allocate $1,000 to a Federation-supported agency of their choice.
A kickoff event on Feb. 28 will serve as an opportunity for the teams to meet, learn about the concepts behind the campaign and answer campaign trivia to get the competitive spirit started. It will conclude with each team having an individual meeting to discuss strategy and divide the donor cards. These teams will have the entire month of March to contact donors and ask for their support.
Prizes will be awarded to the most successful individuals and teams based on a point system designed to stress the different aspects of solicitation. In addition to the top team prize, the top solicitor from each team will earn a $10 Starbucks card, and the top overall solicitor will earn a $50 American Express gift card.
The competition will close on March 31.
