Our chapter began as a guild in February 2005 by 45 dedicated and enthusiastic women interested in reaching out to help children in the greater Nashville community.
April 25, 2007, the guild became the 115th chapter of Assistance League® and has grown to over 60 volunteer members today. There is no paid staff.
We focus on those we serve and every dollar we raise stays in the community. Since 2005, 72,000 service hours have been given and over $730,000.00 has been returned to the community.
We are a 501(c)(3) corporation and follow the Better Business Bureau/Wise Giving Alliance Standards for Charitable Accountability. We are a Metro Nashville Public Schools system-wide PENCIL partner and are listed on Givingmatters.com, a local resource for potential donors.
Your obligations as a member include participation in and support of the philanthropic programs and fundraising activities of the chapter and service on a committee of your choice.
Regular meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month in the Board Room at the Metro Nashville Davidson County Public School Administration building located at 2601 Bransford Avenue in Nashville unless otherwise noted. We gather at 9:45 AM for social time and our business meetings start at 10:00 AM. They usually last about an hour.
Annual dues, payable on or before April 1 and delinquent on May 1, are $75.00 for voting members and $100.00 for non-voting members.
The money from your dues, after paying a portion to National, is used for chapter expenses and to fund social and membership functions. All proceeds from fundraising are used to support our philanthropies.
Members are asked to keep track of the hours they give to Assistance League® on a monthly basis. The Volunteers Hours calendar begins June 1st and ends May 31st. The Hours Chairman will email monthly reminders to complete an Hours Form and return it to her via email or at the monthly meeting.
