Everyone Has Something to Give
On this GivingTuesday, we’re making a special request for you to give the gift of your time and talent to North Star Reach today.
- Behind-the-scenes program and event support
- Committees (for events, fundraising, and marketing)
- Service workdays
2022 Update: Our Volunteer Pledge Campaign was so successful, we have extended it through early 2022 (however, the Matching Challenge Fund ended on December 31, 2021). We are deeply grateful for your support.
Questions about what it means to pledge your time and talents? Below, you just may find your answer.
Volunteer Pledge: FAQS
Q: So, you’re asking me to pledge my time rather than give a donation on GivingTuesday? Is that correct?
A: On GivingTuesday, we’re making a special request for you to give the gift of time and talent. You can give anytime, of course, but on November 30, for one day only, every pledge of time on our website will also raise $25 for North Star Reach, thanks to generous donors who established a Challenge Fund. If volunteering isn’t something you can fit into your schedule, or you’re not sure right now, we’d be grateful for a donation or for you to simply help raise awareness by sharing the impact of North Star Reach. Thank you in advance for all you do to support camp.
Q: Can anyone make a volunteer pledge?
A: Yes, anyone can pledge to volunteer. If you’re under the age of 18, we will need parent/guardian consent prior to any actual volunteer assignment.
Q: How do I make a pledge?
A: Click here and submit the Volunteer Pledge form to let us know how many hours you’d like to volunteer.
Q: How long will I have to fulfill the pledge?
A: For all of the 2022 calendar year.
Q: What type of volunteer opportunities will be available?
A: There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available, including behind-the-scenes program and event support, committees (for events, fundraising, marketing, etc.), service workdays, and, of course, volunteering for summer camp.
Q: What if I make a pledge and I can no longer complete it?
A: We understand schedules and life can be unpredictable, if you are not able to fulfill your pledge, we work with you to adjust the commitment of your pledge.
Q: Are you having camp in-person next year? How do I submit my application to be a program or medical volunteer?
A: Our medical and programs teams are currently working on safely bringing campers and families back to in-person camp in 2022. We anticipate having more updates about the schedule and information about volunteer applications in January. If you are not already on our email list, you can sign-up here for the latest camp updates.
Q: When will I know what projects I will be working on?
A: Your volunteer pledge will be processed by our team in early December and we will be in touch soon to start the conversation with you about how best to match your specific interests with volunteer opportunities at North Star Reach.
If you have additional questions, please email North Star Reach Director of Volunteer Engagement Mike “Coach” Parker (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you in advance for giving your time to support camp. We can’t wait to see what we can all accomplish together on GivingTuesday!
