The organizations, projects, and activities we support are reviewed and selected by the Board of Directors each year. The Saturday Club will typically commit to 2-4 years of volunteer service and support for an organization, depending on the balance of activity types and other factors providing opportunities for our members.
If you are part of a non-profit organization that would be interested in partnering with or receiving volunteer support from The Saturday Club, please complete the inquiry form (coming soon) or contact the Vice President for Community Outreach by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
