Our Public Schools Rely on Volunteers!
Would you like to support The Educational Foundation by volunteering some of your time? Here are a few ways you can help:
Dinner off Main Street – This event, normally held in the late fall, is our signature annual fundraiser, raising over $35,000 per year for the programs in our schools. The event features signature, world-class entertainment, fine dining, auctions and premier venues. There are many ways you can help with this incredible event—from decor, to entertainment selection, food selection, budgeting, soliciting/gathering silent auction items and selling tickets! Planning for this event begins 8-10 months before the event!
Ford Drive 4 UR Community – This is normally held in May, but is being considered for rescheduling because of COVID-19 restrictions. Regardless of when it takes place, we need lots of volunteers to help during this fun day! We need ride along passengers, volunteers to help sign up drivers on the event day in 2 hour shifts, and we need help promoting the event!
Committee Volunteers – We have several committees where you can donate your time and talent! These include:
Fundraising & Marketing
Dinner off Main Street Fundraiser
Ford Drive Event Fundraiser
Valentines Teacher Appreciation Fundraiser
To apply, please contact our Director of Development at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Third Party Fundraisers – Many restaurants and stores have easy to implement fundraisers, such as a night where a portion of the dining proceeds benefit your favorite organization. If you are aware of one you’d like to help spearhead or implement, contact us! Our Director of Development is always working to raise funds for the Educational Foundation, and appreciates your support!
Student Volunteers – Every one of our events can be supported by student volunteers! And, in fact, these are sometimes our favorite part of each event! Students can earn service hours for their school clubs and organizations, or just come to learn about work and to give back to their schools. We have many repeat volunteers, and would love to add your student/s to our list!
