The ARC●PEACE Activity Plan for 2012-2014, approved after the Copenhagen General Assembly in April 2012

by the ARC●PEACE Fundraising Committee (July 2012, revised in April and November 2013)

The ARC●PEACE Activity Plan for 2012-2014, approved after the Copenhagen General Assembly in April 2012, states:

Fundraising. Our institutional growth must be the outcome of members faithfully following a viable action plan, which in turn is supported by budgeting that wisely allocates financial resources. In accordance with group discussions at the GA meeting 2012 a new approach to recruiting of members and procurement of funds is recommended.

A fundraising committee consisting of Oscar Margenet Nadal, Bijayanand Misra, Luz Maria Sánchez, Graeme Bristol and Paul Broches was constituted to look into the following:

  • To review the membership fee structure and establish a PayPal function on the website for smooth payment of fees on a regular basis, while attracting others to join in; all to enjoy an active and continuous participation.
  • To work out a Sponsor policy to be used to get sponsors and individual donations. For this purpose the sponsor policy of ASF-Int may be used as a starting point.
  • To produce attractive brochures, CDs and videos in parallel with our renewed website, high- lighting the benefits of being a member of ARC●PEACE.
  • To encourage members who are hired or working pro bono in projects run by others to raise and donate symbolic fees to ARC●PEACE.
  • To make good use of our consultative status with ECOSOC and partner with other NGOs which need architectural design and planning consultancy to implement their projects.
  • To approach UN Habitat in order for ARC●PEACE to be eligible for running capacity building training courses funded by UN, for example in enabling strategies in housing, empowerment of women and land for public housing for the poor.
  • To organise events charging an admission fee (like the one organised by ARC●PEACE Sudan in 2009 when Dick Urban Vestbro was invited).
  • To invite public administration officials, international foundations and businessmen to sponsor ARC●PEACE projects and events.

The Fundraising Committee is to develop a Strategic Plan in which the tasks are clearly defined within a reasonable time frame with names of potential fundraisers. The work plan for ARC•PEACE Fundrai- sing Committee includes recurring fundraising activities on an ongoing basis. Donors are to be hono- red with sincere gratitude.
