We will request information from every student organization, post a survey through the advisers listserv, advertise in "The Daily" and utilize information gathered by the K-12 Institute here on campus.
We want this information to be made available to teachers and students in local K-12 schools.
Fields for student groups:
"Knowing your school as you do, what teacher or staff person would you identify as the best contact for the following subject areas:"
Eventually we would like the database to direct the fundraising mailing we do and to allow us to screen out people who have already given, track those who have not by a certain date, and send a reminder. We would like to do queries that can give us all the donors in certain categories (regional, amount donated etc). We would also like this database or a parallel database to track in-kind donations and be searchable for the best targets for donations of things like: frequent flyer miles, food, printing donations, graphic design time etc.
People working on this project can do it entirely from the University and with very flexible hours. The service project supervisor (me) is available for meetings or phone conferences any time, and will try to provide clear information on what we want(though I'm not a database expert) with the desire to be well trained in managing the database at the end of the project.
Here are the things that we would like each entry in the database to be able to contain.
