Target Program

At the end of the first Target Program campaign, a Task Force was appointed to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the campaign and to make recommendations for future Target Programs. Among the many recommendations made in the report with regard to fundraising was the following:


Conduct a “deep dive” into the financial data when the first Target Program has come to
completion. Survey the Clubs who donated to the Target Program and compile the
quantitative and survey information (by looking at activities of the total number of Clubs that
donated to the Target Program; reviewing data by region, dates of donations, average
amounts given, etc.) to prepare a ‘Fundraising Handbook’ to publish on The FAWCO
Foundation’s website.

In 2009, FAWCO designed a special Target Program to engage members from around the world in support of the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Water was chosen by clubs as the global issue to support and Tabitha Foundation, Wells for Clean Water in Cambodia was selected to receive FAWCO’s financial support. In honor of its 80th anniversary, FAWCO set the fundraising goal at $80,000, but due to the enthusiasm and commitment of FAWCO’s clubs, that goal was met in the first year of fundraising. Our final donation total was over $168,000.

The Target Program Task Force was charged with reviewing the survey results of the first Target Program and making recommendations to the Boards of The Federation and The Foundation for future cycles of the Target Program.

The Task Force began with a review of the Target Program Surveys and feedback of the first Target Program gathered at Regional meetings.  The information was summarized and used to identify the areas where improvement is needed.  These areas were closely examined and recommendations were made.  Here is the report outlining the findings and recommendations of the Task Force.

Tabitha Open/hand-dug Well
On the occasion of the UN's World Water Day (March 22), FAWCO announces that it has raised nearly $170,000 for water sustainability. FAWCO's Target Water Program, which ended in February 2013, was a tremendous success with participation from 78% of member clubs  and nearly $170,000 raised. About $140,000 went to Tabitha Cambodia Wells for Clean Water while the remainder went to other Water projects. At the Bern conference, Target Program Chair Anne van Oorschot gave an excellent final report and included a thank-you video from Tabitha's founder Janne Ritskes. Thanks to the generosity of our clubs and members, FAWCO has donated over 650 wells and changed the flow for over 1500 families in Cambodia.
