QjJ: Explain the methods your organization will use to solicit funds:
 
Public Outreach Fundraising, LLC is a .commercial fundraiser registered with the Illinois Attorney General's Office. The company has been contracted by Plan Internationa! to conduct ongoing street solicitations in Chicago.
Public: Outreach recruits monthly donors on behalf of the charity. Our representatives work on sidewalks, indoors on privale property (with written consent from the charity and permission from city and state authorities as well as from the private property owner). They do not sell products or services.
.Street representatives [solicitors) employed by Public Outreach are trained to be safety conscious. This includes not creating or allowing any sidewalk obstructions. The company has a successful record of adapting to local preferences and specific license conditions regarding the density, location and frequency of representatives on the street.
Representative's binders and t-shirt show die logo of the charity. As people pass by, they may ask in a conversational tone and volume, "Do you have a minute for Plan International?"
Street representatives do not approach people, harass or hound them, pursue them or block traffic in any way. They rely on passers-by to recognize the name and logo ofthe charily, and to choose whether to stop and engage.in conversation. The initiative to make eye contact thus rests with passers-by. Our representatives then educate the potential donor on the work ofthe chanty and explain the monthly giving process. Those who wish can sign up immediately, either for monthly donations or for one-time gifts. Others are offered a telephone follow up.

METHODS OF SOLICITATION
 
Soliciting is continuous and on a national scale, with no quotas set for specific areas. Methods used are direct mail appeals; proposals submitted to foundations, corporations, and government agencies; special feature articles released for publication in newspapers; paid advertisements placed in magazines, on television, and presented "live" by music artists during their concerts on Plan USA sponsored tours; efforts by volunteers; and material submitted to radio, television, and print for public service announcements. At times, in selected states, we may utilize a professional fundraiser. In addition, our website www.planusa.org provides information about our organization and about how to make a donation.
