Organizational Description: Non profit breast cancer group that provides financial assistance to those in need across Manitoba. We have no office so please note our mailing address is a post office box and not a physical address.
Volunteer Opportunity Details
Description of Duties: We are an independent, small Manitoba-only Board with all volunteer members who shall consider assuming an executive, working or client applications position within our group after being with us for one year. We have no office so our overhead is low, giving the majority of our fundraising/grants back to our clients. Due to covid restrictions in 2020 we moved our in-person meetings to virtual TEAMS media between September and June, on the third Wednesday of each month from 7-8:30 p.m., with no meetings in the summertime. We found this worked well and will continue to do this in 2023 with perhaps a couple of meetings at an agreed upon meeting space to allow us to continue our close personal relationships in this organization.
Skills Required: People who want to help make a difference to a breast cancer patient's cancer journey for expenses that simply fall through the cracks. You will need to have an email address as client application summaries are distributed and voted on using a coded method for privacy.
Skills Gained/Related Careers: Teamwork is important as we work together and help one another as needed. We have no corporate sponsorships and do not receive government funding so a group effort to secure funding and share fundraising duties is expected of our board members.
