GLACUHO 50 for 50 Stewardship Campaign

GLACUHO’s 50 for 50 Stewardship Campaign is an effort to raise $50,000 by our 50th anniversary conference in 2021. GLACUHO aims to support members from our region in their involvement related to regional and international professional development opportunities. 

When and How?

GLACUHO offers unique opportunities to donate to the GLACUHO Endowment account with the ACUHO-I Foundation throughout the year. Donations are collected in person at the winter and summer meetings, as well as at the annual conferences for GLACUHO and ACUHO-I. Proceeds from the silent auction at the GLACUHO annual conference, the online silent auction, and other events throughout the year also go toward the GLACUHO Endowment account with the ACUHO-I Foundation.  

GLACUHO currently awards scholarships amounting to over $5,400 each year to individuals in the region for:

  • The National Housing Officers Training Institute (NHTI) ($2,000 split among attendees from the region)
  • STARS College ($1,000 split among attendees from the region)
  • GLACUHO Annual Conference Re-involvement (conference registration for one individual per state)
  • GLACUHO Annual Conference New Delegate (conference registration for one individual per state)
  • Committee Members (conference registration for four committee members)
The ACUHO-I Foundation account was chosen to manage our investments. These scholarships are funded from the annual interest earned from our ACUHO-I Foundation account.  At this point, about $1,244 of the scholarships are covered, with the remaining balance being covered by our operating budget. To earn interest that will fully fund all scholarships given, we would need to raise over $200,000 more. To move in this direction, we have set an ambitious goal of raising $50,000 between the 2016 Annual Conference and the 2021 Annual Conference. 

DONATE

GLACUHO offers unique opportunities to donate to the GLACUHO Endowment account with the ACUHO-I Foundation throughout the year. You may donate online at any time. Donations to the ACUHO-I Foundation can be made here. We encourage you to consider setting up automatic ongoing giving as an option if you are able via the online donation form. 

Donations are collected in person at the winter meeting, as well as at the annual conferences for GLACUHO and ACUHO-I. Proceeds from the silent auction, wine and beer pull, and “duck in a bag” game at the GLACUHO annual conference, and the online store also support the GLACUHO Endowment account with the ACUHO-I Foundation.  For more information on how to donate before or during the annual conference please visit the Conference section of our website.

NOTE FOR ONLINE DONATIONS: To count toward GLACUHO and the 50 for 50 Campaign, you must change the ‘Donation Type” to either type to either “one time`` or ''pledge `` and type “GLACUHO Endowment” in the Dedication or Comments section. 
 

Yearly Fundraising Goals

The GLACUHO fundraising year will run from the end of one Annual Conference to the next, allowing for a push toward goals when all are gathered together. Fundraising goals per year are as follow:

2017                     $7,000
2018                     $8,000
2019                     $9,000
2020                     $10,000
2021                     $16,000

Any amount raised over the goal would be applied to the goal for the following year.
