QSP Chair and 2 Coordinators – Run one of Bowmore’s best fundraising campaigns! Our annual magazine fundraiser needs a Chair to organize and run this campaign, which normally runs in early October. You will do some planning in June and September to get organized. This is a great opportunity for someone who does not have all year to volunteer, but can make a huge impact on our Council fundraising in a couple of weeks. This campaign usually raises about $10,000! A team of at least 3 people is suggested to make this fundraiser even easier.
In addition to these Executive Council roles, we are always in need of dedicated parent volunteers who can provide support in a variety of ways, including Pizza Lunch Volunteer, Movie Night Volunteer, Fundraising Volunteers and much more! Please think about your interests and time availability, and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss ways you can help. We have lots of ideas for ways parents can help at Bowmore!
