What we're about
Educating, Inspiring & Engaging Youth & Adults in Improving
Community Through Philanthropy
Phoenix Philanthropists is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and we use the Meetup.com to schedule volunteer opportunities in the greater Phoenix Metro Area.
As a nonprofit, we currently facilitate three programs.
1. Philanthropic Service Program
This program connects individuals and groups in sharing of their time and talent with nonprofit organizations on a regular and special event basis. Special volunteer projects are also facilitated by the Phoenix Philanthropists throughout the greater Phoenix Metro Area.
2. Philanthropy Education Program (PEP)
A comprehensive educational program that teaches youth and adults about the meaning and importance of philanthropy in our community.
3. Philanthropic Scholarship Program
A scholarship program for those who exhibit outstanding philanthropic contributions in our community through volunteerism. Scholarships will be awarded on an annual basis.
We do not charge a membership fee to volunteer as we feel everyone should be able to contribute to helping others regardless of their financial situation. If you would like to support our efforts, please visit our SUPPORT US (http://phoenixphilanthropists.org/donate.html) page on our website and make a donation for any amount.
So now what? Volunteer in Phoenix! This group is open to anyone who has a desire to make a difference in other people's lives. Single? Married? Kids? It does not matter. What does matter is that you are reliable and professional when participating in group functions. We welcome families, youth groups, corporate groups and individuals. We are very passionate about getting the youth in our community more involved with volunteer opportunities.
When RSVPing, please keep in mind you are committing time to helping nonprofit organizations and people who need your help and are counting on it. The dynamics are different than the social Meetup groups, where it isn't as big of a deal if you don't show up. Please be responsible and cancel your RSVP at least 48 hours in advance if you can't make it. If you sign up for a wait list, consider it as your being on call for work. If you cannot fill in at the list minute and your plans change, please take yourself off the wait list. I do understand that things come up sometime. Just be mindful of what this group is about and those that we commit our time to.
Please review our mission and programs by visiting our Phoenix Philanthropists Website (http://thephoenixphilanthropists.org/). Once you join our Meetup group, please follow the instructions in your welcome email as to filling out contact information with our nonprofit and filling out our volunteer release form.
