Elementary School Carnival and Fun Run

Some happy and enthusiastic volunteers are needed to help with the carnival and fun run. The volunteer opportunity is fun for DU students, friends of DU students, or faculty/staff. You can donate just a few hours of your time to join us at the carnival and fun run. Volunteers will be doing things like helping to run a game for kids, handing out prizes, pouring lemonade, etc. Most positions require standing, but if a volunteer needs to sit down, we can surely accommodate that. The event is about 2.5 hours long, from about 12:00-2:30 pm or so. Volunteers can come for all or part of that time--even just 1 hour is very helpful! Volunteers can also work together as partners if they would prefer that. Your help and energy is much appreciated!

Chinook Fund's Giving Project

Chinook Fund is proud to collaborate with 6 other community foundations and justice funders in the national development of this innovative philanthropy model. The Giving Project brings together a diverse group of people at all income levels who are passionate about social change and want to strengthen their skills in fundraising, grantmaking, and community building. Participants work together to deepen their understanding of social justice principles in order to support grassroots organizations that build power for social change in Colorado. How does the Giving Project work? The Giving Project is a process. It requires a commitment of your time, talent, and resources over a period of six months. The basic Giving Project structure is: A diverse group of up to 25 individuals commits to gathering 9 times over the course of 6 months. Through workshops and trainings, the group develops a shared understanding of race, class, and power within society. Each person makes a meaningful financial gift — whatever that means for you. Each person commits to fundraising from their friends, family and community to support the financial goal of the group. Chinook Fund’s staff will train you in grassroots fundraising and provide lots of support. Each member is trained in Chinook Fund’s democratic grantmaking process. As a participant, you will read and score proposals, participate in site visits, make collective decisions, and grant money to some of the most inspiring, effective social change work in Colorado.
