What is your circle of influence?
As with any nonprofit board, members are encouraged to leverage their own circle of influence for human, material, and financial resources.
Is Sauers Cares the right cause and organization for me?
Sauers Cares partners with small, local nonprofits in order to support the broader community. We provide volunteer opportunities for days of service, offer financial and in-kind donations, and host fundraising events in support of specific nonprofit projects in the greater Philadelphia region.

What can I/what will I contribute to the organization?
What skills contacts, and perspectives do I have that will be useful to this organization? How can the board use what I can bring? Consider first what you bring to the table and, then, whether you are willing to give that to our organization.
Do I believe in this organization enough to introduce my friends and colleagues to it?
Think about your current network of friends, family, and colleagues. There are lots of different ways to engage those folks with our organization like sharing posts on social media, sending invitations to events, or taking part in peer-to-peer fundraising opportunities. Are you comfortable connecting members of your networks to Sauers Cares?
What do I want to get out of being on this board?
Board members who plan and ask for what they want in the board experience will contribute as well as gain more. Consider your goals and the ways in which those goals align with the mission of Sauers Cares. Do you want to create connections with other nonprofits or learn new skills? Do you want to make a difference in your community? Do you want to expand your network or create deeper relationships?
