CISV Waterloo is hosting a Village this summer! It takes a village to host a village, so we want to keep you updated with the latest information and also let you know of opportunities to get involved. If you have any specific hosting questions, please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A big THANK YOU to our 2019 Sponsors
We want to send out a big thank you to our Village 2019 corporate sponsors so far. Please consider supporting these businesses as a thank you for their generosity.
August 23rd (5pm-midnight) - We would love some volunteers to help us on that night as the leaders have their own night out. The JB come into camp to run an awesome evening of activities for the Village kids, but we need some adults to serve dinner and supervise.
August 31st (various shifts throughout the day) - We need some volunteers to help us clean up the camp once the kids all leave. It’s not a pretty job, but one that needs to be done!
Did you know CISV Waterloo raises funds each year in order to ensure we receive invitations to travel? Village, Step Up, Youth Meeting, Interchange, Seminar... none of these programs would be available to Waterloo youth if we didn't take our turn hosting programs every three out of four years. The average cost of hosting a program in Waterloo Region is over $40,000. We are hosting a Village this year and are hoping to raise $10,000 above our usual fundraising to help offset the costs. There are several opportunities to contribute to our chapter needs.
Overall Fundraising Thermometer
We are looking for new items to auction off for an online auction fundraiser this spring so start tucking away tickets, vouchers, SWAG and other new items you would like to donate to this new event.
Gifts in Kind
Running a Village takes a lot of items. We will be putting out calls for new or gently used items such as sheets, tea towels, craft items, lice treatment shampoos, and other items over the next few months so if you are cleaning out your linen closet or craft table please put these items aside for our Village this summer.
2019 Donor Drive
We are currently accepting donations to help pay for the camp costs, such as rental of the facility, food, transportation, and staff training. All staff and organizers are 100% volunteers, so your donation will go directly to supporting the camp.
e-transfer to email@example.com
Cheques can be made out to CISV Waterloo, and mailed to: Treasurer, CISV Waterloo 214 Glasgow St, Kitchener, Ontario N2M 2M4
Please include a note directing the funds to Village 2019
Our regular fundraising programs are uniquely positioned to help offset your child’s travel costs and support the chapter at the same time! Check out our fundraising page to see the many ways you can participate.
We are currently in the process of obtaining our charitable status and are almost there! We expect we will get it in a couple of weeks so please stand by and stay generous as we will need to raise funds to cover hosting programs. Hosting programs is how we get invitations to travel.
