The Day of Caring process is ready to commence! All project submissions will be done through the BRUW Portal. Non Profit Agencies, Schools and Organizations with a 501(c)3 status are eligible to submit projects. A project submission does not guarantee that the project will be selected. All materials and funding for projects must be provided by the agency. You may be eligible for COP or P66 volunteer grants (please check with us for eligibility requirements)

The call for volunteers to select projects will not happen until August. An email will be sent to the agency contact when one of your projects has been selected. It will contain information about the Lead Volunteer who selected your project.
Day of Caring is September 23. However, the project does not have to occur on the day.
COP and P66 volunteer grants will be similar to last year, for every 40 man hours, there is $1000 grant. This is up to the limit that each agency is allotted for volunteer grants.
Some businesses who participate will have different guidelines. If anyone selects a project that is not from COP or P66, we will work out those details. If you have any questions or problems let me know by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you know of other organizations, schools or agencies who would like Day of Caring projects done, encourage them to submit them!
