What percentage of my contribution is used for salaries or administrative overhead?
NONE! 100% of all general contributions are used to purchase food for our program. Food For Thought Denver is a 100% volunteer organization and all administrative costs are underwritten by our generous Board of Directors.
If my organization wanted to create an event or campaign in which Food for Thought Denver would be a beneficiary, what should we do?
My company is planning to do a food drive for you guys! When and where do we drop off the food?
Unfortunately, doing a food drive for us really doesn’t work for the logistics of the Food for Thought Denver organization since our food stuffs are carefully determined and sourced from one provider (Food Bank of the Rockies). That said, if you have already accumulated the food, please contact Food Bank of the Rockies as they will most likely accept these donations. We can set up a personalized virtual food drive for your organization! Please contact Bob Bell or Jeane Larkins and they will provide you with donation options that work best for your organization.
I’d like to be more involved with Food for Thought Denver on a personal level. How can I help and who do I contact?
What schools do you serve?
At this time, Food For Thought Denver supports these schools:
Why do I have to sign-up to volunteer? Why do you want my email address?
Lots of good reasons!
1. As a 100% volunteer organization, we track the number of volunteers and the volunteer hours that are needed to run our organization. This is very important information for showing our viability and strength as a sustainable nonprofit
2. We work with kids and we work in schools. It is important for us to know who our volunteers are and how to get in touch with you.
3. Our volunteer activities are occasionally impacted by weather or other factors. We rarely need to change a volunteer shift, but if we do, we need to know how to contact you.
4. We like to say “Thank YOU” and occasionally keep you posted on our activities. We promise no more than 12 emails a year, and we make it easy to opt-out of emails if you no longer want to stay in touch.
