• Niagara College Grows Many Hands for the Fall-Winter Term

    Niagara College Many Hands

    Many Hands Project Applications Accepted until Sept. 11, 2014

    Niagara College invites regional charities to apply to their Many Hands Program, a student-driven renovation initiative. On its 17th year, the school seeks a local non-profit in need of event-oriented renovations for students of Niagara College’s post-graduate event management and renovation technician-construction programs to engage and execute. With a starting budget of $0, the program tasks students to fundraise and recruit volunteers over the winter, heightening awareness for the charity and solidifying the community.

    “To develop community co-operation and pride through volunteer driven projects aimed at assisting non-profit organizations in the Niagara Region.” — Mission Statement

    As mentioned, the Many Hands committee requests that all 2014-2015 season applicants submit before Sept. 11, 2014. Charities can download the form here. Note that some restrictions do apply, so check the requirements below to see if your organization is eligible (more specifications on the form).

    • Agency must be a community-based, non-profit service;
    • Applicants must have resources to commit to the project;
    • Projects must not exceed a budget of $15,000;
    • Charities must explore other avenues of funding before applying;
    • Applicants must own property (or possess a long-term lease) with a public/government body with a valid insurance policy.
