The purpose of the Membership Committee is to promote membership in the Dr. Bettye Bouey Yates Educational Foundation. The committee also supports the vision by encouraging the participation of new members in Board meetings, assisting in retention of current members, and recruiting new members.
The Fundraising Committee has a very important job. Without money there is no mission so fundraising is the corner stone of the Foundation. The Committee oversees all fundraising activities. Its main duty is to support the Board in a structured process of raising funds.
The purpose of the Nominating Committee is to provide quality leadership for BBYEF in the form of a governing Board of Directors. This will be done through the regular and systematic evaluation of the board’s strengths and weaknesses, the identification of potential board members, and the ongoing training and education of board members. The Nominating Committee will consist of at least three and not more than five board members, with the Board President serving in an advisory capacity.
The Schools Committee serves as a resource to the Foundation by managing the grant award process for the schools. The committee maintains relationships with school principals by helping to identify projects that support the mission of the Foundation.
The Publications and Social Media Committee promotes the Foundation via the website, social media, and other target groups to encourage participation in the Foundation’s activities. The committee also designs and prepares content for the Board newsletters and brochures.
The Amenities and Program Committee locates venues and provides refreshments at Board meetings and other functions of the Foundation. Members also act on behalf of the Board to respond to Board members or their families and major contributors in instances of their illness, death, bereavement, and great achievements.
Each year BBYEF hosts fundraising events. Volunteers are essential to making these events run smoothly.
