Foundation Builders – Test 2

Gentlemen:

You men are among the generous individuals who have been invited to support the Structuring for Sustainability efforts for MKP-USA – specifically, a program coined Foundation Builders by Membership Committee Chairman Jim Boswell.  This program has a very specific set of recurring donation options that all add up to the same thing – namely, a commitment to contribute $1500 over a 5 year period. It is one of a handful of donation options that the Fundraising Committee is preparing as methods to support MKP-USA financially.

We invite you to participate in this program and to provide us feedback, as we are in our final test phase prior to a wider launch of this program.

We have just completed a second round of LIVE testing with a brand-new system using a brand-new payment method. We believe will dramatically improve our ability to work with donors now and in the coming years.  This first batch of 6 testers made live donations to the new Foundation Builders program at our new site and patiently gave us feedback as we worked through the inevitable early snags and hiccups of such a doubly- and triply- new process for us.  Jim Boswell, Martin Marks & I have communicated regularly throughout the process and are working together to implement methods that are simple, functional and professional.  A second batch of testers was recently invited and then also provided feedback about their experiences with a quick 3-question-long questionnaire.

We are now asking you men to be the next round of LIVE testing.  You’ve indicated your desire to support MKP-USA with service on Councils and Committees and you can do so now through this Foundation Builder process.  I’ve indicated instructions below.

1. Keep in mind that this is now LIVE TESTING with your actual credit or debit card.  You’ve been selected as individuals who might pledge to make these recurring contributions, and we’re ready to begin accepting donations with the new system.

2. Take the next step and set up your contribution.

You can also use this text link:  FOUNDATION BUILDERS Or copy and paste this link into your internet browser: https://crm.mkp.org/civicrm/contribute/transact?reset=1&id=6 to make your first donation and set up the recurring donations per your preferred schedule.  Your first donation will transact immediately.  If you are not ready to proceed with the program, simply close the browser window and do not proceed further.

3. Enter your data as instructed in the ‘shopping cart’ page you find – I don’t want to pre-describe it too much as I hope we will find it self-explanatory even to non-techies.

4. Then please answer Jim’s evaluation questions about your experience – be quite candid, please – and thank you for your generosity to MKP-USA!  You will find these questions here:  http://usa.mkp.org/foundation-builders-test-group-feedback/ as a super-quick 3 question survey about your experience with the contribution page, method & system.  Your feedback will be kept confidential, restricted to group of 3 men who have handled this process from the beginning.

We at MKP-USA are grateful not only for your generosity but also your assistance in creating truly functional donation processes.  If you have any questions about the program, please contact Jim Boswell jamesboswell@insightbb.com or questions about the procedure contact me at admin@mkpusa.org.

Sincerely

Keith R Jarvis
