MNFEA Cares was developed in 2022 as a way for MNFEA to further support our members and their festival needs. Twice each year, the MNFEA Board selects a member-organization to assist in volunteer recruitment and to provide support as volunteers at their event. Once an organization is selected through the below submission process, MNFEA will help to fill volunteer openings through the Board and in promotion to MNFEA members, advisors and our network of supporters.
Twice each year, member organizations have the opportunity to submit their event volunteer opportunities for MNFEA Cares consideration. Opportunities will be reviewed by the MNFEA Board with one opportunity being selected for a Winter/Spring and a Summer/Fall volunteer activity.
Event must be held between December 1 and May 31. Submission window: September 1 - October 31.
Event must be held between June 1 and November 30. Submission window: March 1 - April 30.
Use the submission form linked below to enter your opportunities for consideration. So you may prepare ahead for entry, event submissions will need to include the following details:
- Event dates
- Opportunities needed to fill
- Description of tasks
- How many volunteers are needed per opportunity
- Volunteer hours requested
