Dear Fellow Industry Professional:
As you know, the CHRIE FutureFund™ Committee has been raising funds over the past several years to make sure that ICHRIE will always be there for the advancement of hospitality and tourism education. To date over $100,000 has been raised! This has come primarily from auctions and raffles, as well as sporadic donations.
The CHRIE FutureFund™ is an endowment account where gifts and funds are invested and only the interest is used to provide a perpetual income stream for activities directly related to our mission. None of the money is used for the day-to-day operating budget.
We feel that the time has come to take the fundraising effort to the next level. In order to go outside of our association for donations, we need to prove participation from ICHRIE members. Nothing says commitment to a potential outside donor more than an internal campaign with 100% participation. Therefore, we ask you individually, today, to sit down and write a check to the CHRIE FutureFund™.
This is a prime opportunity to help the association that makes hospitality and tourism education a reality around the world. Help secure the future of your association, not only for your own use, but also for the future of hospitality and tourism educators everywhere. Please make a donation today.
Our goal is 100% participation.
Martin O'Neill, President
Bob Bosselman, Chair
