The Village Employees Benefit Fund depends almost exclusively on donations from Village residents, with additional support from local area commercial sponsors.
The Fund’s largest expenses include printing and mailing our annual request for donations to Village residents, along with modest promotional expenses. Typically, 95% of donations received are used for our worker’s year-end appreciation gifts, with a portion held in our emergency fund. Our all-volunteer board of directors assists in these efforts to keep our expenses low.
Thanks to the support of our donors and sponsors, in 2021, the Fund was able to provide a year-end cash appreciation gift of $300 to each full-time POA hourly employee, and $150 to each part-time employee.
The Village Employees Benefit Fund provides these annual year-end gifts only to POA line employees, not to middle and upper management. The Fund is not affiliated with the POA, and this show of appreciation is completely separate from any employee benefit programs initiated by the POA.
While our annual fundraising effort takes place during the last quarter of every year, we can accept donations at any time. Please refer to the “How You Can Help” section of our website for information on how to donate.
