The partnership – running from September 2018 to September 2019 – will give the selected nonprofit an opportunity to connect with young professionals from around Bismarck-Mandan, while providing network members with service opportunities throughout the year. All YPN fundraising efforts for that year will go towards the chosen nonprofit organization.
“From coordinating volunteers for events to helping with yard work in the spring, our members have performed all sorts of tasks for Non-Profit Partners we’ve had over the years,” said Amber Ruzicka, current YPN Chairwoman.
The YPN nonprofit partnership started in 2014 and last year the selected nonprofit partner was Tracy’s Sanctuary House. This partnership allowed Tracy’s Sanctuary House to connect with young professionals from around Bismarck-Mandan and provided YPN members with service opportunities throughout the year. The YPN directed all fundraising and volunteer efforts from 2017-2018 towards the organization.
Please note: The top three applicants will be asked to present at the September 4th Leadership Team meeting at 5:30pm. More information will be sent out prior to this date.
