Unknown City

    I had my first day of volunteering at my nonprofit organization on Friday. It went well and I was lead to believe that we will have a lot of responsibility put on me because, like most nonprofit organizations it is understaffed and going through many employee transitions.

    I was told that I would be involved in planning a benefit and silent auction for the organization that will take place in November. This does not leave me a lot of time to plan, find volunteers, get silent auction items and get a sense of how the organization works. However, because of how fast this is all going to have to come together I think it will be even more enjoyable.

    My biggest concern for the fundraiser is finding funds because the economy is doing so poorly. I am afraid that people will not want to donate or bid on items.
