Open Brainstorms

How might we create a framework for funding scholarships for Leadership Buffalo for the economically disadvantaged?

We are not seeking full scholarships - more like 80% scholarships. The brainstorming session will remain open for 2 weeks. Then we will select the more attractive ideas and develop possible actions steps. The goal here is to actually implement the scholarships for the 2011 Class Experience. Please use the following guidelines for this session: 1. Strive for lots of ideas 2. Don't judge or criticize others' ideas 3. Build off others' ideas 4. Be wild and unusual Revisit as often as you like during the two week period. Review the ideas of others to come up with more novel suggestions. Thank you for your participation.

Lots of good ideas. Whatever we set up we need to be sure to include a sustainability plan so it isn't just one year, but has structure and commitment with LB to be carried over year to year.
16.
The Encore Career Telesummit is by far the largest and most comprehensive event of its kind, ever. The lineup of world-class speakers, information-packed presentations, and jam-packed weekend event is guaranteed to draw thousands of listeners from all over the globe.
15.
what about a "pay it forward" idea where our class sponsors someone on the condition that they do the same- building on idea 12- maybe it could be part of the criteria
14.
I certainly think all the ideas are wonderful. I think the scholarship comittee could certainly utilize these ideas and bring them to fruition. I for one would participate. We could also seek the participation of companies and organizations to sponsor a candidate that may have partnered or worked with banks, medical, etc. Especially when some send multiple employees.
13.
Similar to #2, but request some of the local foundations (or corporations) to donate money. For example, could call it the Oshei Foundation scholarship.
12.
have one of the day planning sessions be a fund-raising event - the team must plan the event and pull it off.
11.
medical licensing service
10.
Combining Ideas 1 & 3, as current and past LB members step up as a yearly sponsor, an amount can be determined per contributing member once the Scholarship Committee decides on the number of scholarships we aim to offer.
9.
Building on Idea # 7 (Trisha Duke) - This is what is proposed as we move forward. Having a Scholarship Committee to review data (ideas, eligibility criteria, etc.). Please share if you might offer to be on the Scholarship Committee. Dave Bauer + Trisha Duke + ???
8.
50/50 splits at our LB Pub Tours
7.
Solicit LB 10' volunteers to form a scholarship committee that will be responsible for creating a Scholarship Program Overview that outlines the purpose and amount of the scholarship, funding source(s), eligibility critera, etc. Based on provided feedback the committe will decide on which of the suggested ideas to implement and develop a plan. I would be happy to serve on the committee. I manage the scholarship program for People Inc. and can provide insight on IRS regulations, etc.
6.
At the Values Luncheon, either sell split tickets or ask for donations that can be used for scholarships. Having past scholarship recipients at the event to 'share their story' on what LB meant to them may resonate further and encourage giving.
5.
Much like on our taxes where you can add a contribution to the election fund or wildlife fund, have an option on our yearly dues where people could add a dollar (or $5, or what ever amount we/they chose)to go to the scholarship fund.
4.
Have theme baskets contributed by each corp represented by LB and use those at the Values Luncheon to fund the scholarship(s); do 50/50 at Values Luncheon
3.
Tuition + Dues = $3,880 x 80% = $3,104 to raise. We have 55 members = $56 +/- each.
2.
Contact WNY banks to inquire on their willingness to add seed money for the scholarship fund.

Create a scholarship fund from past memebrs of Leadership Buffalo.
