History of our Founding Partners Program
In order to meet the quality of life issues in our community and expand our efforts in the years ahead, your donations and support of our events is very important. Our efforts together are great, but to to keep planning for the future we needed more help to accomplish our mission.
To answer this need and to help build funding for our programs when we were founded, we created the Helpful Hands Founding Partner Program. Our Founding Partners were philanthropic companies and individuals in our community who are champions of our cause and provided an annual commitment of support of $10,000 or more to help fund our programs. Our Founding Partners also sponsored our signature events – Annual Golf Tournament in the Spring and our gala in the Fall “Evening Under the Stars”.
100% of the funds donated by our Founding Partners were applied to increasing funding for our programs, which allowed us to expand our program goals every year. Our Founding Partners were actively involved with our Board of Directors, providing us advice and guidance, and attended our signature events.
