Become an Auxiliary member, volunteer at one of our special events, give us a charitable gift/donation, and/or select us as your favorite charity if you shop on Amazon or with PayPal!
Becoming a Member
Members help our board make decisions on how to best accomplish our mission. The Auxiliary’s Board of Directors holds regular business meetings in the Marion Community Center at 10 a.m. on the FIRST Monday of each month. You do not need to become an member of the Auxiliary to volunteer at our special events. Becoming a member means you volunteer to attend business meetings and vote on governance issues, such as electing directors, changing bylaws, and weighing in on fundraising and grants. Membership dues for 2021 are $5/person. The dues are used to pay for internal needs (such as condolences), because we want donors to be assured their contributions are solely used in support of the Auxiliary’s mission.
Volunteering With Us
As we mentioned earlier, you do not need to be an Auxiliary member to volunteer at our special events. Volunteering to sell raffle tickets or to help out with one of our special events, such as Marion Freedom Day, is a great way to be more connected to our community. Doing so is often a lot of fun, too. Please, fill out our 2021 member and volunteer application so that we can keep you better informed about volunteer opportunities. The application can be mailed, emailed, or delivered by you to one of our business meetings. We hope to see you soon!
Giving Us a Donation
We are more than happy to collect a donation check from you in the mail. However, if you are looking for an easy way to donate by credit or debit card, we are partnered with PayPal’s charitable arm (PayPal Giving Fund), so that we don’t get charged credit card processing fees. You do not need your own PayPal account to use the service. Sometimes people are uncomfortable with the language used by PayPal. Please, know that PayPal Giving Fund has never failed to give us a donation made in our name. Please, check the box on the donation page that allows PayPal to share with us the contact information you give PayPal.
Amazon’s Smile Program
Do you ever shop on Amazon? If so, whenever you do, please use Amazon’s Smile program so that we receive a small percentage of what you spend (0.5% to be exact). Click on the Amazon banner below to take you directly to smile.amazon.com so you won’t have to search for us among almost a million other organizations.
