kids all in


Beginning in the spring of 2008, Dr. Nora Rifon’s Promotions and Sponsorships course at Michigan State University’s Department of Advertising, Public Relations, and Retailing took on the task of creating student proposals for Children’s Trust Fund of Michigan (CTF). Three (3) semesters of students created 31 fundraising proposals for CTF. With the approval of Executive Director Mike Foley we are pleased to provide CTF direct service and local council grantees with a variety of fundraising ideas varying from golf outings to black-tie dinner auctions. This catalog encourages CTF grantee fundraising committees to contact Children’s Central to receive full copies of the class proposals. At the end of each summary is a project code, email projects (at) and include that project code and we will send you the full student proposal you requested.
