VOLUNTEER HERE!

FOR THE
ASHLAND SCHOOLS FOUNDATION
2020 FUND DRIVE

We're kicking off in April...and need your help!


We have lots of volunteer opportunities for all supporters - click on the blue sign up link below that most interests you. Plus, each Sign Up Page has links to the other volunteer pages so you can sign up for as many volunteer jobs as you like!
  • Display an ASF Lawn Sign at your home or business (April 4 - May 2)! This will help spread the word that it's time to donate and support the schools!
  • Install Lawn Signs - spend a few hours on Sat, April 4 installing about 25 signs on pre-determined properties. We give you a list and a map! Sign up for Picking up Signs too, if you're able.​​
  • Phone Night Volunteer is our highest priority to staff with volunteers. During the last two weeks of April we gather 40 volunteers on each of our 4 calling nights, to reach out to parents and past donors who have yet to give. You get a fabulous dinner, training, and a real sense of accomplishment by knowing your time made a significant difference to the success of our drive. Grab a friend and sign up together - you'll be surprised how much fun you have!
  • Office Help - come and help our office staff do a myriad of tasks needed to help keep our fund drive organized! Volunteer packets, processing thank you cards after a phone night, stuffing envelopes - we do it all! You can sign up for a specific date, and/or to be an on-call volunteer.

Fundraising
Each spring the Ashland Schools Foundation holds its annual fund drive.  An important part of the fund drive is the phone campaign - calling previous donors or current parent's of school-age children and asking them for their support.  This group effort is fun - with food, refreshments and lots of camaraderie.  It's a great feeling to hear all the wonderful things our donors have to say about the important work the ASF does in our schools. For further info contact us through the CONTACT US page.
