OPEN M and AngelFAX Leverage Opportunities for Agency Fundraising 

AKRON, Dec. 1, 2013“OPEN M is an acronym that stands for Opportunity for People Everywhere in Need Ministry.  We take the ideas of opportunity and need very seriously”, commented OPEN M CEO Dottie Achmoody. “Our programs are intended to help people throughout the greater Akron area meet the spiritual and physical challenges of living with scarce resources. We do this in a wide variety of ways; from delivering health care in our free  clinic to providing bikes for kids and heading off poverty through our Getting Ahead program.  Our relationship with AngelFAX(AFX) reinforces that spirit of opportunity to address needs that we act out by feeding the hungry, caring for the sick, nurturing children, building families, and strengthening community.

AFX CEO Bill Kirk responded, “Drew Dawson of Tire Source plus David Pelland and Alicia Pelland with Bear Pelland Associates have already bought into the AngelFAX model of leveraging their passive fax expense to reinvest in OPEN M. This is the case, even though AFX was formally launched in late September”. He continued, “Our purpose, with AngelFAX, is to be a creative funding source for OPEN M and other deserving Non-profits. We want to always seize the chance to fulfill client needs and positively impact lives. As word gets out, we see many more community focused companies getting involved. This will make vital dollars available to OPEN M via AFX and our Minimum 20% of the Fax Bill Pledge; but without the exhausting drain of additional old school fundraising”.
