There have been extraordinary demands for service and support in Montgomery County that are the result of both a rapid growth of a remarkably diverse community ethnically, racially and economically as well as the ongoing needs of children, teens, seniors and persons with disabilities.
Galvanized by this reality of need and embracing the rich heritage of volunteerism in our community, a seasoned group of citizen activists joined together to establish Montgomery Alliance for Community Giving.
Montgomery Alliance provides:
An opportunity for residents and businesses to invest in strengthening the Montgomery community by supporting human service nonprofit agencies.
It offers donors the highest commitment to ethical integrity, oversight and credibility.
Accountability for contributions through its own tightly managed and independently audited process as well as oversight of the recipient agencies.
Assurance that their contributions support agencies that employ effective practices to reach defined outcomes for addressing documented needs
A donor friendly process including an electronic web based pledging process has been developed to expedite fund pledges. Funds raised are allocated by the local volunteer review panel according to the latest assessment of community need.
Montgomery Alliance effectively and efficiently functions at the lowest possible cost, using trained volunteers for all aspects of the fund raising, distribution and oversight, including an independent audit committee
In addition to an annual fund raising campaign, Montgomery Alliance each year selects a special project in need of assistance to support through a separate fund raising effort.
Montgomery Alliance is incorporated and has an employee identification number. The organization is managed entirely by the Board of Directors.
