Validating a volunteer organization
SMART is a nationally recognized, statewide nonprofit organization with a network of volunteers, educators, donors and advocates across Oregon who are banding together to empower children for more successful futures through books and reading.SMART volunteers read one-on-one with Pre K through third-grade students weekly during the school year, providing a fun, child-guided experience with books with a goal of increasing reading engagement and motivation.Newly added/edited direct deposit/ACH payment accounts become live in the subsequent payment period after validation is complete, after the payment account is associated to an event.Operation Airdrop (OAD) is a rapidly growing group of General Aviation pilots originally formed only days ago by i Heart Media host John Clay Wolfe , Doug Jackson, and several other passionate individuals to deliver relief supplies to the hardest hit and isolated areas along the Texas Gulf Coast.100% of these funds will go to keeping the planes of OAD in the air.While everything on this site is about the profession of volunteer management, this section of the library offers materials discussing the "profession" as a profession -- issues about acceptance, education, career development, and so on.
OAD has delivered unprecedented and timely relief to those who may have otherwise not received help for weeks with the help from groups such as the Texas Baptist Men, Salvation Army, Texas Navy, Cajun Air Force, Aero Bridge, and Operation BBQ Relief.However, we will be filing as a 501(c)3 organization to hopefully provide deductible expense receipts for your rescue donation.Needs can and will change as the situation changes, so please don’t hesitate to follow Operation Airdrop on Facebook for the most recent updates and urgent needs. As the flood waters recede, we need people and vehicles to help us unload and move supplies from destination airports to the shelters and other places where they’re needed.At these drop off points, donations will be packed for our pilots to deliver.
Because these hurricanes struck so quickly, we have not yet organized as a legal charitable cause.
To date, almost every expense incurred to transport the overwhelming amount of donated relief supplies has come directly from the generous support of the volunteer pilots and aircraft owners themselves.
