"I am (name) and I am calling from (organization) located in (Ward __).
I urge you to support of the One City Fund as introduced by Mayor Gray when you vote at the Committee of the Whole mark-up this afternoon. The Fund will infuse much needed operating funding into the nonprofit community in the areas of education, job training, health, services for seniors, arts, public safety, and the environment. This money will directly benefit District residents, your constituents.
As designed, the Fund provides maximum transparency and accountability. Further, the Fund's operator, the Community Foundation of the National Capital Region, will evaluate individual grantees and the effort overall. These evaluations are a particular value added, something never done of funding let by the government. In this way, the city will best serve residents and establish the District as embracing quality practices."
