Thank you for the work you do every day and the impact you make in your communities. We are facing challenging issues and our country is facing unprecedented times with the outbreak of COVID-19. We know that it’s impacting those we serve and those that serve for us.
You’ve asked, “What can I do to help?” Many of you have made monetary and in-kind donations to our nonprofit partners. Thank you! Some of you continue to volunteer either virtually or in-person, safely. Thank you!
There is another way to help. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Volunteer Fairfax has launched the Stronger Together Campaign, a special appeal for this critical time. Your investment helps Volunteer Fairfax carry out its mission to aid many of our 650 nonprofit partners who need volunteers to support their work. According to the Points of Light Foundation, four out of five charitable organizations are dependent upon volunteers, and on average, nearly 60% of the nonprofit workforce is made up of volunteers. COVID-19 has created a volunteer-needs tsunami.
We’re on the front lines with our nonprofit partners during the COVID-19 health emergency mobilizing volunteers. Will you consider a donation so we can continue to scale operations at a time when our community needs volunteers the most? Our goal is $25,000. That’s only $50 each from 500 committed Volunteer Fairfax friends like you!
We invite you to join our community by supporting the Stronger Together Campaign. Your gift will truly make a difference to increase our operational capacity for the benefit of the nonprofits we serve. We ARE stronger when we work together!
