We want to help you make an impact in your community!
Here are some frequently asked questions to guide you along in that process:
Any financial member of Catholic Financial Life aged 16 or over is eligible and encouraged to apply.
Any project in your community that requires volunteers. This can be a homegrown activity by you or an existing project (not already sponsored by a Catholic Financial Life chapter) that needs the help. Impact Teams are not eligible for matching funds, but they are tons of fun.
You will hear back from the Catholic Financial Life Home Office on whether or not your team is approved.
There is no "I" in team. Upon approval of your project, we will send you a customized link to your project on SignUpGenius. From there, you can distribute the link to your team members. All team members must register on SignUpGenius.
Each Impact Team will receive a $150 funding card. These funds are to be used to purchase materials and supplies for your specific project. Spend it all in one place, or in many places! Each Impact Team also receives 5 complimentary t-shirts to be worn during the project.
We don’t blame you! Each team captain will receive an email with instructions on ordering additional t-shirts at cost, plus shipping, on a limited supply basis.
The follow-up form (emailed to the team captain before the project) and pictures from your project are due within 1 month of completing the project.
We love the enthusiasm! However, a maximum of 2 Impact Teams per household may be approved in a calendar year, with at least 3 months between projects. Use your teams wisely.
While we encourage teams to perform individual projects, these situations will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
That’s a great thought, but the funding cards may not be used as a donation. Their sole use is to buy the necessary materials and supplies that will aid you in completing your project.
