Let’s talk about a hypothetical situation. Say you were on a small community organization that raised money for a dog park to make improvements.
The city government was strapped, and there were things that needed fixing up. The city said that the park was part the community’s job to maintain.
So a small group formed, and you were on the committee which raised a bunch of money to fix the park.
After the first batch of fixes were made, one of the members wanted to do another fundraiser, and organized it on his own as a last minute thing. You weren’t able to attend. There was no delivery of information about how much was raised and how much money went to what resources.
A few months have passed, and the guy is organizing another last-minute fundraiser, this time without so much of an invitation to the original committee to help. You reach out to him privately and say, “Hey, thanks for your involvement. Where is the money going and how can we see the records and books?”
The guy freaks out citing that where were you at the last fundraiser. “Well, I declined, as I was booked that night.”
The guy says, “Why the sudden interest?” He turns the tables on you.
What would you do in this hypothetical situation. Curious.
