The Rose Circle is grateful to receive your gifts of time, talent and treasure!
We could not do this important work without our grant funding, volunteers, fundraising efforts, and your generous gifts.
We are currently seeking individual and business donations (tax deductible), fundraising support, and capacity building grant opportunities to add additional mentor training certification opportunities to meet the demand of mentor/mentee matches. We are currently staffed by two employees (1.5 FTE) and rely on board members, mentors and volunteers to help us achieve our goals.
For your tax-deductible contributions:
To give you an idea of how your generous donations might be used, here’s some information on costs associated with one-to-one mentoring, circle mentoring and mentor training.
One-to-one mentors donate their time and often use their own funds to coordinate activities with their mentees. Donations to offset costs of meals, entertainment and other activities is much appreciated and can range from a small donation of $25 to cover a meal. Larger donations to cover activities like bowling, art classes, plays, concert tickets and movies are appreciated.
On average it takes about $2500 to offer community or school based circles (this estimate may include mentor training, admin time, supplies, snacks and general overhead).
There is an increase in the number of people interested in mentoring (we’ve started a waiting list for our next training). The investment to attend mentor training is $225 per person and we’re finding that many people who are interested in becoming a mentor may not have the funds to invest. As such we are seeking donations to help offset these costs. A generous, donation of $10,000 allows us to grant scholarships to 30 mentors and pay our mentor trainers to facilitate a two day training (this does not include admin time, coordination or snacks).
