Per our CREW of Northern Nevada’s Bylaws, “The Philanthropic Committee shall identify, develop and coordinate opportunities for awarding scholarships and engaging in philanthropic activity.”
Our committee focuses on both external and internal philanthropy through the following activities:
- Providing educational scholarships to TMCC
- Giving to the local area’s Give Hope Foundation
- Serving at the Food Bank of Northern Nevada
- Partnering on clothing, furniture, and fund drives for such local groups as Dress for Success.
- Providing convention scholarships to CREW members
- Providing dues subsidies to CREW members who need assistance
Funds are raised through CREW’s Annual Golf tournament along with luncheon raffle prize receipts. The Philanthropic committee typically meets once per quarter with ideas also exchanged via e-mail. We are always open to new philanthropic ideas!
The Northern Nevada Chapter also looks for opportunities to serve our local community. Our partners for events and fundraising have included the Food Bank Of Northern Nevada, Dress for Success, The Give Hope Foundation and the Children’s Cabinet. Through contributions from our members and guests, we also fund several scholarships each year to Truckee Meadows Community College.
