Deliverables

Funds Raised in Specified Amount
Organizational Statement Declaration
Database of All Entities Involved in Project With all this in mind, the first question to answer regarding the torch relay for the Children’s Miracle Network is to ask what the purpose of the project is. The main purpose of the torch relay is to raise funds for research and enhance services. So the main tangible deliverable goal is to raise $2,250,000 or a semblance of an overall profit in Georgia. Once a deliverable is established, the project manager will then divide areas that need to be defined and focused upon. These are known sub deliverables. A sub deliverable under profit will be specific plans of action for how, when, and where the profit will be made from the torch relay. An additional sub deliverable will be created by the fundraising department of the torch relay in order to establish ongoing relations with all those who wish to donate to the cause after the torch relay has concluded for this particular year.
