Fundraising Events and Ideas
Our mission at Bridges of Hope, Allegan County is "to foster relationships with individuals desiring to move out of poverty by providing tools, support, education, and connections to community resources".
We are looking people who want to impact those in or near poverty in Allegan County. We especially need someone with fundraising or event experience. This can involve meeting in person or via zoom, minimum of 4 times/year, more often when holding an event. This opportunity is great for someone who does not want to commit to serving on the Board, but wants to make a difference.

Our mission is to foster relationships with individuals desiring to move out of poverty by providing tools, support, education, and connections to community resources.
We seek to establish relationships that provide encouragement and support in setting and attaining goals, so that people in or near poverty can rise above their circumstances, becoming economically stable and contributing to a thriving community. Our workshop approach enables participants to reflect upon and assess both themselves and their circumstances, to learn new ways of thinking about their challenges, and to set goals. All of this takes place in a safe and supportive environment where they are treated as experts on their own lives, rather than being expected to passively receive information and follow customary rules.
Both personal experience and data-based research show us that poverty is complex - it is not just about managing finances. Rather, poverty is a lack of resources. Resources that can be mental, physical, emotional, social, cultural, or spiritual. They include things like trust, motivation, persistence, relationships, perspective, and resiliency. Access to these resources leads to walking away from poverty.
