It is also a social club where members can contribute to other members and guests their knowledge of fishing techniques, fly patterns, and river etiquette at monthly meetings. It is also a forum for discussing problems such as fishing, pressure, diseases, and river and stream access and providing input to federal and state agencies. It funds local projects through an annual banquet/auction fundraiser.
Fundraising Plan for The Belt Fly Fishers
A case statement is the rationale and justification of any fundraising event. The rationale behind this fundraiser is to hopefully make enough money to:
1) Provide funds for various local projects to protect rivers and streams, provide access, provide signage at access points, etc.
2) Provide seed money for next year’s fundraiser. As a nonprofit organization, Belt Fly Fishers can justify their fundraiser as a means to provide an entertaining evening to members and the public, increase public awareness of the port and the need to maintain a healthy environment for trout and other species, and to raise funds for projects associated with these goals.
3) Support Trout Unlimited.
