Dedicated to teaching young people and business leaders about ethical conduct, the Uncommon Friends Foundation at the Burroughs Home & Gardens relies on its extensive network of volunteers. Here is a quick look at three Uncommon Friends Foundation committees with volunteer opportunities.
Finance Committee: Responsible for creating the UFF annual budget, the Finance Committee meets monthly and presents its budgets for approval by the board of directors. The committee also oversees fund-raising activity and develops ways to increase the organization’s endowment fund.
Education Committee: Tasked with maintaining the educational curriculum of the foundation, the Education Committee organizes teacher training workshops and seminars, discusses trends in character education, and selects recipients for the Annual Character Education Awards.
Marketing/PR & Membership Committee: The Marketing/PR & Membership Committee communicates with current members and recruits new members. In addition to publishing the Hello Friends newsletter, the committee handles all media relations and public outreach efforts.
