UFDC’S Primary Funds are:
UNITY FUND – This fund is UFDC’s general management fund. It supports expenses for the management of the organization such as office supplies and equipment, salaries for staff, insurance, travel expenses for officers or staff to attend Executive Committee meetings, legal expenses, and information technology support.
ReAL SERVICES FUND – Donations to the ReAL Services Fund make it possible for us to continue to offer educational products to clubs and individual members as well as supporting the conservation and management needs of the UFDC Museum, archival collections and library.
BUILDING FUND – this fund supports the maintenance and repair needs of our headquarters and museum such as cost of utilities, janitorial services, lawn care, replacing a storm-damaged flag pole, roof and parking lot repairs, and similar expenses.
REGIONAL DIRECTOR’S EXPENSE FUND – This fund makes it possible for all the UFDC Regional Directors to do their jobs. It covers their expenses when visiting clubs and allows them to send out regional newsletters and other important information.
ENDOWMENT FUND – This fund exists to allow UFDC to build funds for a healthy future for the organization. Earnings generated from the investments of the endowment fund can be used to support UFDC’s programming.
DOLL NEWS FUND – Donations to DOLL NEWS support expenses incurred in covering events for you such as the UFDC National Convention, and Regional Conferences, and help defray other production costs.
JUNIOR COLLECTORS FUND – This fund helps support the Junior Collectors’ Program.
CONVENTION FUND – Donations to the Convention Fund go directly toward convention expenses. These donations could be used to support such things as printing convention booklets, purchasing ribbons and badges, renting audio-visual equipment for programs, and renting lockable display cases for a special exhibit.
Additionally The UFDC Fundraising Committee runs special projects to support specific needs.
Current Projects include:
The Pay-A-Day Project – The Lake County Doll Collectors of Illinois is challenging all UFDC clubs and MALs to pay one day of the running expenses of the UFDC headquarters. It takes $74.61 a day to pay the utilities and internet expenses for the headquarters. Choose your favorite day of the year to sponsor, each date and donor will be published in Doll News.
