Volunteer Opportunities

BPACF has opportunities for individuals interested in administrative work to volunteer during normal business hours with the Foundation. This opportunity includes answering phones, scheduling/planning committee events and meetings, working with staff to conduct electronic research, and maintaining the BPACF relational database and mailing/email lists.


The Scholarship & Programs Committee leads BPACF’s efforts to serve the youth of Northeast Ohio. The members make recommendations for the distribution of funds related to scholarship and educational activities; conduct program-relevant research; develop guiding principles for funds distribution; and provide assistance for grant proposal development.

The committee’s programmatic objectives are to establish relationships to provide mentoring, internships and summer employment, and monitor academic performance. Its members also serve as a liaison between BPACF, the educational community and our scholarship recipients.


The Marketing Committee is charged with promoting the mission, vision, values and programs of BPACF. The members develop an annual plan for organizational communication, promotions and external content. The committee leads efforts to secure and create publications, and relates the Foundation’s purpose and activities through all mass media to broaden the Foundation’s local and national contacts; enhance the brand image of the Foundation; coordinate material for the annual report; and maintains articles, photos and other historical content.


The Fund Development Committee designs strategies, policies and procedures for securing resources for the organization. The members explore all fund raising opportunities to meet the long-term and short-term financial needs of the Foundation. The group is expected to prepare and update collateral materials for the BPACF Annual Fund and Endowment Fund; maintain records concerning Annual/Endowment Fund donations; and serve as liaison with the Cleveland Foundation concerning our investment.

The committee is charged with communicating the needs of BPACF to the corporate and philanthropic community and securing resources to support BPACF events, programs and initiatives.

 


The Special Events Committee is responsible for the overall management of BPACF events, including the Scholarship & Awards Gala. This includes the event planning and execution. The Committee develops event budgets and presents them to the BPACF Board of Trustees.


BPACF is currently seeking a diverse group of community leaders, working professionals and caring adults to mentor our scholars and program participants. Mentoring involves communicating with our scholars and program participants on a regular basis, troubleshooting personal and academic challenges and being an active listener to the concerns of our youth.
