Just a bump so the list doesn't purge. Hopefully we'll have some donations to note for 2010!

Thanks so much to our Endor Base members for donating time this year to personal appearances and raising money for charity. You've made a lot of kids happy and helped your community Smile

Guess what, I was able to have auto pruning (purging) of threads turned off in our Endor Base forum! So we don't have to bump things to keep them anymore Smile

Is there a "minimum" monetary donation we request people make to these charities for RL and 501st appearances?

No there is not. We never require donations, and since they are voluntary we have no minimum request. We merely suggest that as a volunteer organization, we do appreciate a donation to charity in exchange for our time.

There are many events where the event itself is the charity work (a Hospital Visit, a Coats for Kids drive - etc.)

I happened to be curious about what charities Endor Base has been associated with lately and noticed that this area doesn't get updated much. Are these charities listed above still ones we work with? Are there any new ones to be added to the list?

You just have to dig through our events for 2014 and 2015 to see what our base has supported. Literally, read through each event post. That's what I did as BCO/XO when I did tracking. There are not any super hard and fast rules. I had made the above list to try to give prospective event requesters something to browse through when choosing a charity if they did not have something specific in mind already. (I gave them a link when responding to requests if they said they would be interested in donating to charity. It was a question I always included on my follow up responses to requests) It's really very flexible. Just should be a legit charity, not like 'fund my trip to Europe to see my dying grandma...' that's not a legitimate charity Wink Basically, not crowdfunding.
