Why get involved?

We have set up the charity to give back to our community. After many years of seeing the impact that development work can do we feel extremely fortunate to be in a position where we can help make a difference in the lives of our community & neighbours.

By joining us on this journey you will be invested in:

  • Helping people
  • Understand the joy and satisfaction of giving
  • Being a resource for your community

Benefits of being on a committee

As a 501(c)(3) registered charity we have already established the platform to give back. We know that people would like to help and want to do so as well but do not have the experience or time to set up a registered organisation.

So how does this help you? Well we are committed to:

  • Removing the administrative burden, by taking care of the initial IRS status and tax reporting every year
  • Bookkeeping and accounting, insuring compliance to non-profit guidelines
  • Operational guidance on how to set-up and operate the committee 
  • Fundraising guidance and possible cash contributions on select applicants, dependent on receiving grants, both institutional and government
  • Partnership, ensuring that we develop in the right way together
  • Charitable tax break on any donation

How do committees Operate

Boosting Hope will operate through local committees, comprising of the people who know & care the most about the area. Each one will comprise of individuals or organisations who will have autonomy to select the local partners receiving the grants.

We anticipate approximately 5 members on each committee, with either a chairperson or 2 co-chairs, who will have the deciding vote on distributing funds.

From experience we know that working on a local level creates the most impact.
