What You Can Do
Use Corporate Matching Programs
Contact the Human Resources department at your employer regarding their charitable giving and/or donation matching programs. Most companies have them and you can double your donation to Operation Shanti by asking them to participate.
If you'd like to volunteer, send us an email indicating your interest, time availability and useful skills. We'll take it from there! Most importantly, spread the word about our efforts.
Give us a shout if you want to be involved with fundraising activities. Here are a few suggestions:
- Host a fundraiser/house party for Operation Shanti. Let us know that you are interested in an event for us and we'll send you a "fundraiser packet"!
- Directly fund raise for Operation Shanti as a volunteer fundraiser. Either you have fundraising experience or you want to learn to be an effective fundraiser for a good cause; if so, we need you!
- Organize a special event fundraiser based on your interests or hobbies, such as a mini-golf tournament, a community yoga class, a kirtan, or a bake-sale.
