One of our favorite sayings at Chula League is, “An idea does not a project make.”
Chula League members are full of ideas about neat things that need to be done
to fulfill our purpose, but ideas don’t get things done,
Chula League gets things done by the RFP (request for proposal) process.
Here’s how it works:
- Members propose a list of great ideas at the annual meeting (go HERE for meeting minutes).
- The Chula League Board of Directors prioritizes those ideas, and agrees how much it is willing to spend on each priority.
- The Board issues an RFP, offering to award a grant of a certain amount to any community member who will step up to the plate and make the idea happen.
- Community members make proposals to carry out the intent of the RFP.
- If a good proposal is submitted, the Board can decide to fund it.
- The project starts, the community swings into action.
- Chula League pays for materials, supplies, etc., as committed in the RFP.
- The community makes great things happen.
Here is a document that describes the RFP process in more detail:
