SkateMD is operated by a Board of Directors made up of four volunteers that all have full time jobs in addition to serving with SkateMD. We receive a lot of donations for things like food and coffee for volunteers at clinics, product or raffle off and give away to volunteers, and skateboard and pads for the kids who come skate. We sell merchandise at the clinics, and all proceeds go to replenishing merchandise and into the program.
In order to ensure we're able to provide those amenities to the kids, volunteers, parents, and volunteer staff, we are looking for unrestricted funds. In addition to the program needs outlined above, unrestricted funds would go towards travel costs, design updates for website and marketing assets, program costs, and board development.
Since we are an entirely volunteer-run organization, we are always looking for committed volunteers and community advocates.
We do not currently have multiple openings on the Board proper, but we do have open seats on the following committees:
- Finance Committee
- Programming Committee
All of the above-mentioned needs are truly paramount. The funds donated to us throughout the year are the only way that we are able to continue providing programming for volunteers and clinic attendees.
