Youth Mental Health Summit Update

Thanks to everyone for the continuing great work on the Children Come First Conference/Youth Mental Health Summit, We hope to see you at our next Summit Planning meeting, next Wednesday, March 7th, from 4 - 6 PM at Pathfinders.

Your Help Needed with Fundraising!

We are moving forward with fundraising for the Children Come First Conference/Youth Mental Health Summit. We will be asking for sponsors to support the summit to make it possible for us to offer stipends to youth, family members, and community members with limited financial resources to ensure diverse and inclusive participation. The Sponsorship opportunities are attached.

We are asking each of you to help us with our outreach. I would like to get letters out to potential sponsors within the next week. Can you please assist with the following:

  1. We are asking each committee member who works for an agency to see if their agency is willing to sign on as a sponsor. If so, please let me know the agency name and the level of support. When we send out our appeal letter to sponsors, we thought it would be helpful to indicate some “lead” gifts and hope some of your agencies will be helpful. Some of your agencies (Kelly’ Davis’s practice, Rogers Inhealth for $2500 ) have already made a commitment – thank you so much and we want to be sure to acknowledge that!

  2. We are building a list of possible sponsors to contact. Please send me your suggestions for this list of possible sponsors – if possible, please include name, contact information including address, phone and email if possible by this Friday March 2nd.

Thanks everyone and look forward to hearing from you ASAP!
