MLR falling way short of fundraising expectations
$2,000,000 in three years. That was the fundraising goal theMammoth Lakes Recreation Board of Directors set when it hired Executive Director Matt McClain in July, 2017.
15 months have passed, and the NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) hasn’t raised diddly squat, and Mammoth Lakes Town Council is wondering whether MLR should get out of the fundraising game altogether.
McClain was hired at a starting salary of $130,000 per year because he was believed to be an expert at raising funds for non-profits.
His only proven expertise in this arena (at least locally) is selling himself.
