As an Stewardship Review volunteer, you will evaluate assigned agencies and help ensure donor dollars are invested in programs that are making a real difference in people’s lives.  Volunteer teams review and assess partner agencies on quality standards which measure an agency’s ability to demonstrate success and competency in three key areas: governance, administrative efficiency and fund raising, and financial accountability.

  • You will be asked to invest about 15 hours total over a two month period (February/March and/or September/October, it just depends on your availability and interest).
  • A 1.5 hour orientation and training session will teach you how to understand and interpret Board make up, Board involvement, agency financial, audit review, etc…
  • A significant portion of the review is conducted on-line from any computer

We conduct Stewardship review twice a year February/March and September/October; multiple orientations and training will be held in January and August for the respective sessions.
