Help Us Win $20,000!

Donate a minimum of $3* through GivingChallenge.ca or CanadaHelps.org – each dollar donated = 1 entry for Volunteer Strathcona in the grand prize draw

Eligible donations must be made between June 1, 2020 at midnight Newfoundland Daylight Time (NDT) and June 30, 2020 at 11:59:59 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)

Why? What would $20,000 mean to Volunteer Strathcona?:
$20,000 for Volunteer Strathcona is $20,000 for the community. Volunteer Strathcona is a not-for-profit organization that relies on grants, sponsorship, and donations to remain operational. These funds will be reinvested into programming, direct services, and sector support. We will be able to provide more resources and more opportunities!  Our focus and primary use of resources at this time is on our COVID-19 Community Response Project which has allowed hundreds of volunteers to give back a collective 350+ hours since the end of March to our community – at minimum wage, that’s $5,250+ worth of work! These volunteers have been picking up and delivering groceries, prescriptions, assisting with lawn care, delivering Food Bank and WECAN hampers, and more.

In addition to volunteer-led projects, Volunteer Strathcona facilitates capacity building workshops that are as low-cost as possible. We aim to provide our community’s non-profits with all the tools they need to be as self sufficient as possible. Workshops include grant writing, social media, time management, communication skills, LGBTQ2S+ in the workplace, HR basics, fundraising, and more! Sector support is also a key component to Volunteer Strathcona. We pride ourselves in helping fellow non-profits as best we can, whenever we can. In the past, this has looked like social media consulting, acting as a fiscal agent, equipment lending, governance advice, and advertising assistance. We are always open to helping out in any way possible! Financial support or lack-thereof directly impacts programs and services like this. With enough support, we are able to expand available services and improve the quality of our current services thanks to donors like you.

If you are able, please help us reach our goal of 1977 entries to commemorate the year we gained charitable status.
