Approval of Fundraising Activities Policy

Effective Date: January 1, 2010

Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to optimize Meharry Medical College's fundraising efforts by ensuring that solicitations are made to prospective donors that will ensure the most appropriate match of donor interests and institutional priorities. A series of uncoordinated solicitations to the same prospective donor by different individuals in a single institution is the most undermining threat to a successful fundraising program. This policy is intended to cover solicitations to private individuals (alumni and non-alumni), corporations, foundations, and organizations even those with whom you or your programs have had longstanding relationships.
