PAST 2020-2021: Donate it Forward Program

Public·5 members

Thanks for agreeing to participate in this RTC Focus group to plan for the Donate it Forward (DIF) Mileage program. I'd like to set up a meeting day/time for us to discuss to establish program guidelines. Is there a time on Friday, Mar 12th, that can work? I'm open all day.

Overview of the RTC:

The Regional Transportation Collaborative (RTC) was formed to bring our five-county programs under one umbrella in order to: leverage resources, foster partnerships, apply for joint funding, and coordinate fundraising projects. The grant request was written, and the RTC was awarded a PATH grant for 150K towards these efforts.

This slide provides the rationale for the RTC.

Our focus group DIF, falls under goal #2.


The above slide identifies the six Initial Groups for the funding! Our DIF project received $8,000 and would cover all transportation programs within RTC (Care-A-Van, LOWLINC, RAPP at Home, VolTran). It is based on donating 25 cents a mile for each mile driven at an estimated 32,000 annual mileage. All drivers are eligible to "donate" their miles, upon request, to a nonprofit organization or church.

Our job is to develop the program guidelines, which include items such as:

1. What is the program?

2. How to apply to participate in the program

3. How often to pay out funds (monthly/quarterly??)

--- Who will disburse funds; each indiv org or from one central fund

4. Organizations to which funds can be donated...(NOTE: I have a big list of possibilities I requested from PATH.

5. Letter of introduction to the receiving nonprofit org
