The success of the Auburn Interfaith Food Closet is due in large part to numerous, local faith-based communities. Most of our over 200 volunteers come to us through these organizations. We invite your faith-based community to become a Food Closet sponsor. There are three levels of sponsorship: Participating, Associate, and Affiliate. Which level works best for you?
PARTICIPATING: identifies up to three members to be their representative(s) on the AIFC Board of Directors. Board representatives should be individuals who are willing to participate in the governance of the AIFC by serving in leadership positions or as members of committees. Each fully participating community is expected to host a Saturday opening of the AIFC once a year. These communities support the AIFC with donations of food and/or financial support. They agree to publicize information about AIFC to their community. They consent to be listed on the AIFC website and promotional materials.
ASSOCIATE: does not have a representative on the Board of Directors. These communities support the AIFC with donations of food and/or financial support and designate a representative with whom the AIFC may communicate about its efforts. They agree to publicize information about AIFC to their community. They consent to be listed on the AIFC website and promotional materials. An associate community is not required to host a Saturday opening or participate in AIFC fundraisers like “Stuff A Bus” or the “Turkey Drive”.
AFFILIATE: Consents to being listed on the AIFC website and promotional materials indicating their endorsement of the AIFC mission. They name a designated representative with whom the AIFC may communicate about its efforts. They agree to publicize information about AIFC to their community.
