Paint Night Fundraiser
What is a donation used for?
We are a local nonprofit... that means 100% of your donation stays right here in Pendleton and goes straight to making a difference in the lives of our young people. We are committed to full financial transparency and are proud to have earned a Platinum seal of approval from GuideStar for 2018 and 2019. Read more on our financial disclosure page.
It takes us approximately 9 hours of work to get all the pieces in place prior to a match. And then after the match is in place, we spend many hours a month providing mentor support for each match! Thanks to 6 volunteer PTE and 2 Americorps VISTAs, we are able to keep personnel costs low.
Training & Vetting
We must pay for criminal background checks for every volunteer and invest time in carefully training and screening each person.
It costs us $150 to get a mentor completely vetted & trained prior to mentoring.
Thanks to special donations, we are able to offer some occasional special group activities (like attending a baseball game!).
