Updates from the Midwest Fundraising Committee

In 2021, the committee focused on creating short- and long-term goals, contributing to the Midwest Chapter Strategic Plan, hosting a Chapter Owl Logo contest, creating a Donation Honor Roll, and finalizing the destination of fundraising proceeds. We will soon post short- and long-term goals on the committee website. We encourage you to read through them and share ideas and suggestions by emailing fundraising@midwestmla.org.


Midwest Chapter members donated $781 this year! The Awards and Scholarships committee received $551 and the Financial Hardship Fund received $230. This information and the inaugural Donation Honor Roll will be posted to the committee website by the end of 2021. We thank you for supporting our members through your generous donations!


For 2022, the committee is planning a new virtual fundraising activity. We are also excited to host the Silent Auction at the Midwest Chapter Conference in Bloomington, Indiana. Please consider this the official first call for 2022 Silent Auction donations. So, get those clever, crafty, and creative ideas going.

We thank you for your generosity and hope to see many of you in Bloomington, Indiana, on October 8-10, 2022!

Happy Holidays,
The Midwest Chapter Fundraising Committee
