Join a Team OR COMMITTEE
Members have many options to get involved as you wish. Let us know if you'd like to be part of a team or committee - great ways to share talents, learn more, and connect with other women who share your commitment to our community and interest in philanthropy. You can also sign on for an independent project- like being a welcome caller, a social media poster, a webmaster... And we welcome new ideas about what else you might like to do to advance our work!
Membership Committee The ninety-nine girlfriends project grows through friends inviting friends. Help spread the word to gather members. Help new make members feel welcome. Time commitment varies from 2-10 hours/month. Contact Jinx at email@example.com if you are interested in this team.
Grants Committee This is where the action is. Come meet the potential grantees. Review applications, attend site visits, get to know our community and our community leaders. Join one of the grant review teams: Arts & Culture, Health and Wellness, Education, Family, Environment. Time commitment is seasonal with most committee and site visit time in August and October. Select the finalists to present to our membership for a vote in November. Contact Pip firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining one of our grant review teams.
Communication Help get our message out to our members, our potential grantees and our community. Bring your marketing and communication skills to supporting our website, social media, marketing packages and press releases. Contact Eileen at email@example.com if you are interested in helping with these activities.
Member Education Some of the most fun and interesting, networking events are put on by our Education Committee. Help plan learning events including our annual Discovery Forum. Identify experts for our membership to be inspired by. Be part of a Community Study Team in one of our five focus areas to provide fellow members with context for informed grantmaking. Help update our library resource center on women's collective giving and community metrics. Contact Deborah at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping with these activities.
Events We need an energetic, organized team to coordinate our regular annual events including our annual April Launch event and December Awards Ceremony. The time commitment can be small if you'd like to help at an event or large if you can pour your heart into creating exciting experiences for our members. Contact Jinx at email@example.com if you are interested in helping with events.
If you have skills and time to share, and are not sure which committee is right for you, contact Deborah at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can chat about options and opportunities!
