Philanthropy Points for Chapter’s VP Philanthropy

With the summer months almost behind us, probably many of your members have served some hours this summer, which is great.   However you want to have enough hours on your calendar for the next (8) eight months for all of your members to meet their service requirement.   In order to ensure you have enough service hours posted and available you can work through the following steps:

Step 1

Add the new members and take the total number of members (moms & sons)
Then multiply by 20 hours (for ease use 20 hours for everyone)
This number equates to the minimum number of philanthropy hours you need to have for the year.

Step 2

Take this number and divide by 3 (only 3 quarters left in the YMSL year)
Spread these hours out over the next eights months on your calendar as opportunities will allow.  Remember to try and have adequate hours offered to comply with the quarterly “hours checks” that are completed during the year.

Step 3

Work with your philanthropy liaisons to schedule the appropriate number of hours for your chapter.  Remember to keep a good balance of diverse opportunities.  (Incoming freshmen are required to serve (4) four different philanthropies when meeting their hours.)

If you have any questions or need assistance working through this calculation, contact your National VP.   Remember, we have all been in your shoes so we understand!

With the summer months almost behind us, probably many of your members have served some hours this summer, which is great.   However you want to have enough hours on your calendar for the next (8) eight months for all of your members to meet their service requirement.   In order to ensure you have enough service hours posted and available you can work through the following steps:

Step 1

Add the new members and take the total number of members (moms & sons)
Then multiply by 20 hours (for ease use 20 hours for everyone)
This number equates to the minimum number of philanthropy hours you need to have for the year.

Step 2

Take this number and divide by 3 (only 3 quarters left in the YMSL year)
Spread these hours out over the next eights months on your calendar as opportunities will allow.  Remember to try and have adequate hours offered to comply with the quarterly “hours checks” that are completed during the year.

Step 3

Work with your philanthropy liaisons to schedule the appropriate number of hours for your chapter.  Remember to keep a good balance of diverse opportunities.  (Incoming freshmen are required to serve (4) four different philanthropies when meeting their hours.)

If you have any questions or need assistance working through this calculation, contact your National VP.   Remember, we have all been in your shoes so we understand!
