Team Fundraising and Charity Guidelines

  • In order to make the team fundraising/volunteer process easier and more effective for teams based on feedback, and to continue promoting our core value of direct philanthropy, we are revamping the fundraising guidelines!
  • Teams will now have the option between holding a fundraiser (minimum $500 donation amount required) or volunteering for a minimum of 25 hours throughout the season (deadline 11/9).
    • In general, when planning fundraisers sponsor bars have the first right of refusal.
    • Volunteer hours will NOT be double counted with the volunteer standings program run by Emily Myers – (ie, if your team opts to hit the volunteer hour minimum instead of having a fundraiser, the first 25 hours will not count in the volunteer hour standings)
    • Only direct volunteer work (e.g., painting the walls of Casa Ruby) counts toward the 25-hour requirement. All volunteer work should be approved in advance by Emily or Bennett.
  • A form was distributed to captains asking for team charity, your philanthropy chair (if not already provided), and whether your team will be having a fundraiser (with desired timeframe / ideas, if you have them) or opting to get volunteer hours instead. Forms must be completed and returned by our opening party/T-shirt pickup on Thursday, September 6.
  • Corey Koch will be working to connect teams that are supporting the same charity and/or looking at similar time frames and events to encourage them to partner and generate higher impact fundraising events, and will serve as a point of contact for coordinating fundraisers all season.
