"give and get" program
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley is preparing for the 14th Annual Night in the Country this summer and we would like to inform you about this fantastic opportunity for 2015!
Night in the Country has become our largest fundraising event and requires the Boys & Girls Clubs to rely on various service clubs and organizations to help with different aspects, for example, beverages, parking, bag checks, ID checks, etc. There are countless service clubs and community based organizations who have continuously asked to be a part of this event, and the Give & Get program is a way for this to happen.
Once a volunteer is accepted into the NITC volunteer program they designate an organization(s) they would like their time donated to. Once the volunteer completes their shift, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley will make a donation to the non-profit organization chosen in that volunteers name. A check presentation will take place at our volunteer appreciation celebration on August 8, 2015.
The rules are simple. The chosen cause must be a certified non-profit organization. The volunteer must be accepted into the volunteer program. In order to be accepted the volunteer must be at least 18 years old, fill out the volunteer application form, successfully pass a background check, and participate in a mandatory online training. Once the volunteer completes the prerequisites, they will be required to complete their volunteer shift(s) at the Night in the Country in order for the non-profit to receive the donation of funds.
The rate of giving applied to the selected non-profit varies depending on where the service is provided and ranges between $8 and $12 per hour. Let’s say 12 volunteers worked 8 hours each, at a giving rate of $12 per hour, and pledged their time to “Through a Child’s Eyes Foundation”. The Foundation would receive $1,152 in the names of those 12 amazing volunteers.
In appreciation of the service provided, volunteers will receive a shirt, up to two meals a day during working shifts, and a 2-day general admission credential for the festival! We require a minimum of 8 hours worked to receive the credential and to be invited back next year.
There is a limited amount of volunteer slots available and they are on a first-come, first-served basis.
