Why is reporting important?

As we seek to validate our community presence required to attract business and foundation support for River West Village, it is important to document the volunteer commitment of our organization's members. Knowing both the number of contributed hours and the number of different contributors is essential to demonstrating the strength of River West Village. In addition, several local companies will make cash contributions to benefit River West Village based on the the number of volunteer community-service hours current [and retired] employees make.
