Some Ways to Raise Money for a Shooting Club
Some Ways to Raise Money
In every town there are fine, public-spirited moneyed men, and when you have your club organized you need not hesitate to go to them, explain what you have done and all about your club and ask them for contributions and any man if he has a drop of shooting blood in his arteries will gladly chip in and help the good work along.
Another and perhaps a higher-toned way to raise money is to do like the men's shooting clubs do, and that is to sell bonds. As a boy this may seem a little over your head, but if you want to finance your club in this way any business man or any lawyer—the former always preferred—will see you through it to the end that everything is done in a strictly businesslike manner.
The bonds should have a value of $5.00 each and carry interest at 5 per cent and as this gives you something to sell instead of asking for something for nothing, you ought to have no trouble in raising money on them. After the club is going strong it can buy back the bonds and pay the interest on them. These bonds should read after this fashion:
