Ever felt like volunteering, but not sure where to begin?
Rainbow Foundation of Hope (RFOH) relies on community support to help us review grant applications from our National Partners.
They are Canadian registered charities leading projects and programs for LGBT+ refugees and newcomers (i.e., SOGIE migrants) through three RFOH funding streams:
- Refugee private sponsorship applicants (also known as Circles of Hope through Rainbow Refugee)
- Newcomer and refugee community resettlement support programs
- LOUD Foundation of Hope scholarships in partnership with the Gay & Lesbian Business Association of B.C., or LOUD Foundation
Whenever RFOH receives a new application, we draw upon a growing database of community volunteers on our Review Subcommittee to review and evaluate each application.
The process provides transparency and accountability of our grant administration process to volunteers and donors.
Commit whatever time you can. Each application is based purely on your interest and availability. We look for a minimum of two (2) community representatives outside of the RFOH Board of Directors to help with a goal of 50% community representation.
Over 30 volunteers have helped us with the review process to date. Message us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll happily add you to our growing list.
