Registration is now open for our first Connect for Good opportunity — a unique volunteer experience for Emerging Leaders who want to dive deeper into issues they care about. Participants learn from experts on the issue, roll up their sleeves and help out as hands-on volunteers, and fundraise to support effective solutions.
Our October Connect for Good opportunity will focus on racial equity and our Martin Luther King Jr. Day service grants. We’re looking for 25 Emerging Leaders to be part of a grants review team to help United Way select nonprofit agencies for service grants. These grants will support volunteering projects on or around MLK Day of Service in January 2019.
Note that this is a multiple day volunteering opportunity and participants will need to commit to the following schedule:
- October 3 (6– 8:30 pm) – Introduction, Grantmaking 101, Fundraising 101
- October 4-16 – Review grants
- October 17 (6 – 8:30 pm) – Fundraising 102, Grantmaking determination
- October 24 (6 – 8:30 pm) – MLK Day Emerging Leaders project selection
