USNMC
FUNDRAISING

THE NEED

In order to reach its goals, as a non-profit entity and AKC parent club, the USNMC needs volunteers most of all to do the work of the club.  Fortunately the club has a group of hard-working members!

The USNMC also needs money! Members pay a (relatively nominal) membership fee annually which nearly covers the expenses of maintaining the membership roles.

But the USNMC must also:
•    Maintain a website
•    Build and print educational materials both printed and electronic
•    Support educational events such as:
      •    Seminars on the breed for judges
      •    Meet-the-breed events for public education
      •    Distribution of materials to other organizations
      •    Mailing materials / products to those who request it
      •    Necessary office supplies for secretarial, financial, and club management
      •    And more

THE SOLUTION: 
We do regular fundraising.  We have a small Fund-raising committee charged with finding, acquiring, creating, and marketing items to raise

funds for the club. 

WAYS-N-MEANS
The USNMC strives to be the best provider of totally unique collection of Neapolitan Mastiff “stuff.”  This includes T-shirts, sweatshirts, tote-bags, books and more, all customized for our club, most of them limited edition. The club ways-n-means is available at the National Specialty for purchase, and is periodically offered on an on-line store through E-Bay (this is managed by the fundraising chairperson)

COME TO OUR SHOWS
In addition to being a showcase for the breed and its fanciers, our National Specialty and other club-managed regional specialties provide a major forum for fundraising. 

In addition to providing the Ways-N-Means collection for visual inspection (and purchase, we do AUCTIONs - such as 50-50 raffles and we plus periodically raffle off one-of-a-kind collectible items (like quilts, collars, statues).
