What is a Coaching for Everyone (CFE) Founding Member?
A founding member is a person that sees the mission of Coaching for Everyone (CFE) and says, “I want to be on the front lines raising money to support this organization.” Such a person recognizes and resonates with the need for high quality coaching for traditionally underrepresented and under-resourced people of color.
What does a Founding Member do?
A founding member leads a team of 10 individuals from her/his personal or professional network in raising $5,000 in start-up funds for CFE through small, individual donations of $20 or more.
How does this work?
The founding member charges each person on their team with asking 25 people to support this mission with individual donations of $20 or more (founding members are asked to kick-off their team’s fundraising effort with an initial donation of $75 – $100). Collectively, each team will raise at least $5,000 and in turn, will receive a surprise collection of CFE swag for all their efforts

Why this method of fundraising?
This initial effort at grassroots fundraising serves the obvious goal of encouraging the average person to give. Additionally, its purpose is to raise awareness of a societal need our organization aims to address. Coaching is one of the fastest-growing careers in the world. We want to expand access to high-quality coaching and impact the entire field by diversifying it. Spreading the word about CFE is vital, and with multiple team members acting as fundraisers and ambassadors, we intend to do just that.
