This Wednesday we will celebrate five years of Saratoga Springboard. Through the years we’ve been fortunate enough to work with some of the most admirable agencies in our community. We are proud to say we have assisted in raising more than $90,000 to support these deserving organizations and thank all of you for your help along the way.
“Celebrating our success and looking toward our future is incredibly exciting”, says Betsy Boland, Saratoga Springboard’s president and co-founder. “When we began, we didn’t know what would become of this group. Watching our project partners flourish inspires me every day”.
Our mission is “empowering non-profits to reach new heights”. The goal is to share the unique skill set of our members and foster growth within their project partner. It often comes in the form of mentoring, fundraising, creating innovative events that the agency can replicate and increasing awareness surrounding the cause.
Our members all share a sense of warmth and community brought on by being a part of something greater than ourselves. Springboard requests that new members commit to one project cycle, approximately 7-10months, but many stay beyond the minimum. “I’m so proud of what we have accomplished as a group” says Alysa Arnold, Saratoga Springboard’s co-founder and Vice President, “We have been so lucky in finding talented and dedicated members eager to make a difference in our community.”
Please, join past, present and future Springboard members, past and current project partners, our families, friends, fans and biggest supporters this Wednesday at Gaffney’s as we raise a glass to toast to all that has been accomplished thus far and many more partnerships to come. Tickets are $30 each and include a food, a drink ticket, entertainment and bar specials. To purchase them before Wednesday, click here (tickets may be purchased at the door beginning at 5:30pm).
