Posted by Bethany Sanchez, FPA Treasurer
As the treasurer of your organization, my main responsibility is to take good care of the FPA’s funds. At each of our FPA board meetings, I provide a written report showing the income that has been received, the expenses we have paid, and the balances left in each account. We have a policy that the board approves all expenses before I pay them. For the coming year, I would like to be able to report that the FPA has generated more memberships and more donations than past years. If we do that, we can spend more on Spread the Jam grants, helping to grow our beloved sport around the world.
I also am the primary person who responds when people send messages to firstname.lastname@example.org. I have done that job since before I was on the board. It is a fun way to interact with people who are reaching out to the FPA with questions about how they can learn freestyle, how they can support our sport, and/or how they can get jammers who are willing to do demonstrations for their schools, events, or advertisements.
How are you? I am in the process of starting a Frisbee program in town. My goal is to teach kids how to play and have some of the guys from New York do exhibitions. I have spoken to several of them. I have also reached out to the middle and high school in my town (Hastings) and they have a program in late September as part of gym. I am interested in possibly getting a grant to help in the process. I have downloaded the application. What types of programs do you finance? With the coming of the World Championships to NYC next year, this is an especially good time. Concurrently, I am writing an article about the Frisbee scene in NYC and am developing a questionnaire which I would be happy to send you. Thanks a lot for your help!!
