Join a Committee

Do you have a way with words? Do balanced budgets give you goosebumps? Or maybe you’re the social type, always ready to plan your next party.

No matter your interests, talents or skill set, there’s a place for you on the Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels team.

Our three volunteer committees offer support to YMOW staff in a wide variety of ways. Committee meetings are held several times a year, with opportunities throughout the year to help further YMOW’s mission.

Events and Fundraising

Money raised through donations and fundraising events is crucial to the work of YMOW. Members of the Events and Fundraising Committee assist YMOW staff in planning and implementing events and fundraising activities in the community. Members will recruit community donors, assist with ticket sales, event planning, food solicitation, and help staff to get the most out of every fundraising opportunity.

Interested in joining? Please reach out to YMOW staff member Jennifer Raspbury at jennifer@ymow.org or at 734-487-9669 x2.

Marketing and Communications

Spreading the message of YMOW’s mission is important to growing our presence in the community. Members of the Marketing and Communications committee act as advisors to our communications staff by proofreading and editing promotional materials, brainstorming new ways to share YMOW’s mission and even writing pieces for our newsletter and website.

Interested in joining? Please reach out to YMOW staff member Sandy Bosch at sandy@ymow.org or at 734-487-9669 x6.

Finance and Governance

Members of the Finance and Governance Committee help to ensure the financial integrity of Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels. The committee guides the Executive Director in setting policies, longterm financial goals and sustainability, and maintaining the organization’s operating budget.

The committee also oversees establishment and maintenance of YMOW’s annual budget and assists the Executive Director in preparing the annual IRS 990 filing.
