Program Overview
Our chapter volunteers work hard to make the places where they live and work better through our shared commitment to Family, Community, and Country. This program rewards those chapters for carrying out one hands-on service project each quarter by giving them $400 after the service project is complete. The program also provides an additional $400 for financial reporting and a bonus $500 for new membership growth.
