Sisterhood believes that it is important to recognize those who help raise the money that makes all of our programs and mitzvot possible. The first step in recognizing those who contribute is knowing who pitched in. Our Donor program tracks the time and money that Sisterhood members invest into Ways & Means, and also into religious observance events. The goal of the donor program is to involve as many members as possible in raising funds for Sisterhood and making religious observance events happen.
The Donor program gives members donor credit for hours volunteered and for direct donations. Donor credit is measured in "Donor dollars." A Donor is earned when a member has contributed $80 worth of time or money to Sisterhood fundraising projects. At the end of the year, there is a Donor luncheon where the women who have earned Donor credit are recognized. Anyone who has earned a Donor can attend the luncheon for free. In addition, for each additional Donor earned, they can bring a non-Sisterhood member.
Luncheon guests are restricted to non-Sisterhood members to encourage all Sisterhood members to earn Donor. Officers do not earn Donor credit for fulfilling the obligations of their Sisterhood positions. However, any member who works at a Sisterhood fundraising event or project will
earn Donor credit.
What earns Donor? Examples include direct donations; working fund-raising events like the Holiday Boutique, Mah Jongg Tournament, or Bingotini; staffing our Judaica Shop; working oneg, extended kiddush, or the Sisterhood seder; food preparation for extended kiddush or providing baked goods for the Boutique Bake sale. Pretty much anything that helps Sisterhood raise money, or helps with religious observance events.
This what our Donor program is now. The Board is currently discussing what the donor program should be like in the future.
Went looking for humor about volunteers, and it was all terrible. So this email has quotes instead:
Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer. ~Author Unknown
Volunteers don't get paid, not because they're worthless, but because they're priceless. ~Sherry Anderson
It's easy to make a buck. It's a lot tougher to make a difference. ~Tom Brokaw
Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart. ~Elizabeth Andrew
