5) When does Marklund ask for Marklund Fund support?
Marklund’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30.
The Marklund Annual Fund cycle coincides with the organization’s fiscal year. Solicitations begin in early August and end in early June, through various appeals.
6) Where does an Annual Fund dollar go?
Annual Fund dollars allow Marklund to meet the organization’s most current and/or urgent needs: i.e., a broken lift or wheelchair, making sure our vans are safe and in great working condition, an air conditioner that needs to be replaced in a home; current needs change everyday and having the financial gifts to make sure these things don’t impact our client care makes all the difference!
