We currently have 13 volunteers on our board: four on our executive board and nine on our associate board. During our largest event we will manage approximately 75 – 100 additional volunteers.
Since 2001 Purple Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all-volunteer organization whose mission is to raise funds to improve the lives of people in the Dallas area who are living with or are affected by HIV/AIDS. With donated proceeds of more than $400,000, Purple Foundation has become an invaluable source of revenue for local charity organizations whose work reflects our mission. Purple Foundation produces the annual Purple Party® Weekend in addition to other fundraising events throughout the year. Purple Party Weekend is a sensational weekend of dance events featuring electrifying visual performances and music by the world’s most popular DJs. Purple Party attracts dance-music lovers from all over the world and is one of the largest nonprofit, all-volunteer charity dance fundraisers in the United States.
Managing volunteers presents the unique challenge of providing a very simple means of communications to users that may only ultimately have contact with the scheduling tool once, if at all. Being able to manage these people without the requirement of their intervention or learning is a must.
