Fundraising News

To a Quaker friend with good ideas about fundraising, this is what I wrote recently:

"Thanks so much for what you share about fundraising. When I called, with some trepidation, half of the list of about 10 of WUaS's biggest givers-to-date on the 'WUaS Acknowledgement of Giving at WUaS' page - (accessible here - - after a previous email of yours, I didn't reach 4 of the 5 people, but I learned from one, who called me back, that they'll give $100 every December - very good news, indeed. So, I'll try calling the whole list again after 3 months or so, with your recent questions in mind."


Thank you for joining the World University and School team. WUaS would like to invite you to participate in our hour-long, monthly, business meeting this Saturday, July 13th, beginning at 9 a.m., Pacific Coast Time / 12 noon East Coast Time.

This month we'll meet online in a Google + group video hangout, (with its 2 channels for communication, via group video and group text chat, opening opportunities for communication).  And this month, I'll send out a second email a few minutes prior to 9am PT, to our entire WUaS email list with the actual web address / URL of the Google + group video Hangout.

You'll also find the Hangout posted here - - at WUaS's G+ profile page findable by searching in Google + on Here's an example of a WUaS Google + video hangout business meeting from April 2013, - "World University and School monthly business meeting" - You'll find other good examples as well as a good overview of WUaS, from a Stanford Coursera course I took in last autumn called "Startup Boards: Advanced Entrepreneurship" on World University and School's YouTube video channel - - and here - WUaS's active blog is here -

The agenda for the upcoming, July 13, 2013 WUaS, monthly, business meeting is here:
