Work a Day, Share Your Pay
Non-Profit Fundraising Program
The Butler County Board of Elections is partnering with local churches and other non-profit organizations in a “Work a Day, Share Your Pay” program.
How does it work?
Through the “Work a Day, Share Your Pay” program, you can partner with us in helping to recruit volunteers and patrons to work the polls. In turn, those workers would pledge to donate all or part of their poll worker salary to your organization. Each precinct election official earns a minimum of $165 for each election. So, if you help to recruit just three workers, your organization could raise nearly $500!
And, there’s no limit to the number of workers who can participate in this program – and therefore no limit to the fundraising potential for your organization!
This is an easy fundraising opportunity for you, and it also provides an exciting and important opportunity for your volunteers and patrons to participate in a meaningful civic activity by working the polls. We hope you will consider participating. Just send in the completed form and we'll do the rest.
