The Giving Project – Volunteers Needed

Parent coordinators are needed for another exciting community service opportunity and tradition at Brown. Each year, Brown and Oak Hill join forces to host The Giving Project, a special community project and event that raises awareness and funds for charities supported by our students and faculty.

Community members nominate non-profit organizations that they support and which fit set criteria. A committee of teachers and students narrow down the nominations, and then the community comes together at a potluck dinner (date TBD in early May) to review the finalist organizations and vote on their favorite. Click here for more details on how it all works.

Parent coordinators are needed to assist Brown and Oak Hill teachers with this project. Responsibilities include managing the charity nomination process, parent communication, and the potluck dinner. This is a great opportunity to provide a community service, be involved with your child’s school and to help students learn about non-profit organizations and the causes they support. Email Freya Hurwitz to sign up to volunteer!
