DONE IN A DAY OVERVIEW
In addition to its on-going community programming, every year the Junior League of Fayetteville (JLF) solicits applications for Done in a Day (DIAD) projects. For each DIAD project, a group of Junior League members assist a local nonprofit organization or social service agency through hands–on volunteer work on a short-term basis.
TYPES OF PROJECTS
Done in a Day volunteers can help program and staff community events; sort and distribute at a food bank; improve a facility through painting and gardening; host celebrations that incorporate our focus on child well-being; and preparing resources for clients - just to name a few. DIAD projects should leverage JLF members in a volunteer capacity where they have direct contact with the organization’s members, staff, clients, or direct beneficiaries of the non-profit’s goods and services. JLF is dedicated to training our volunteers to better serve the community in a variety of areas, and the majority of DIAD projects we participate in will offer select members the opportunity to participate in programming and planning for the event.
Volunteer projects are generally scheduled in 2-3 hour shifts within one day. Because most of our members work full-time, the vast majority of our projects take place on weeknights or weekends. JLF is not able to commit to more than two DIAD events on any given weekend, and cannot commit to a DIAD event to be held during the week of JLF’s major fundraisers.
Project requests should be submitted at least 4 weeks prior to the event.
- The applicant organization must be a non-profit agency with 501(c)(3) status or have a fiscal sponsor.
- Projects should be located in Fayetteville and the surrounding community.
- Project must include a request for volunteers. While funding is available to assist with these projects, requests for only funds will NOT be accepted.
- Related funding may not be used for fundraising, capital campaigns, individual requests, travel expenses, salaries, stipends, political activities or religious purposes.
- Unless required attire is business or business casual, Junior League of Fayetteville volunteers must wear JLF branded t-shirts and shirts.
- Preference will be given to projects that align with our focus areas.
- JLF requires that an agency staff person be onsite and available during the project.
- Co-Sponsor does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, religion, ethnicity, income or sexual preference relative to the individuals supported.
