VOLUNTEERISM, CONTRIBUTIONS AND PHILANTHROPY (VCP)

This page is dedicated to those who believe and who have continued to provide the resources necessary in some capacity either by way of Volunteerism, Contributions and or Philanthropy (VCP)!

I’ve had an opportunity in my lifetime to be exposed to numerous experiences, people, theories and events that have impacted my life and allowed me to do likewise in a quest and attempt to impact others.  This page is designed to offer collaborative efforts among community stakeholders by way of available resources at each individual financial level.

The primary focus of this page is to offer resources, stimulate thoughts and ideas that will provide support to communities by way of stakeholder buy in and interest in giving. These resources along with its community’s vision for the future will strengthen and best serve the communities and its families as a whole.

VOLUNTEERISM (V)    The principle or practice of supporting churches, schools hospitals, etc., by voluntary contributions or aid instead of relying on government assistance.  Performance of a service willingly without pay.  Social and civic service – To advocate on the behalf of those less able for themselves under certain circumstances while empowering them to represent themselves.  (Volunteer/Leadership angle)  A action to inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, takes and makes a leader!

CONTRIBUTION (C)
- Giving to a common fund.  To make come about.

PHILANTHROPY
(P) - Love of Mankind.  An idea, event or action that is done to better humanity! A network of smart givers who want to strengthen our free society.  Charitable giving to human causes on a large scale.

I had the privilege and opportunities in my career to be trained, skilled and work in the defined areas of volunteerism (Church, Schools and Hospital).  Those years of experiences has cultivated my life while instilling in me a never ending lifelong commitment to THE VCP!
