Oceanside Outrigger’s Ko’o Program goes both ways. The club supports members that have trouble paying dues by supporting part or all of their membership dues and in turn, the Ko’o recipient members help the club by volunteering in meaningful ways to keep
Oceanside Outrigger running smoothly. The amount of financial support and the kinds of volunteer service are worked out between the Ko’o recipient and the
Oceanside Outrigger Board of Directors.|
Outrigger’s by-laws state that an amount equal to up to five percent of the club’s annual membership funds from the previous year may be applied to membership grants on an as-needed basis. We also accept donations specifically earmarked for the Ko’o program.
I’m interested. What do I do? Potential
Oceanside Outrigger Ko’o Program participants should contact the treasurer for consideration and provide in writing a statement of need and a statement of intent to contribute, in ways other than financial, to the club. Ideas for non-financial contributions to
Oceanside Outrigger include, but are not limited to, activities listed here under “Ways for You to do Your Part.”
I’m still interested. How does the club decide who gets to be a
Oceanside Outrigger Ko’o Program Participant? The treasurer forwards requests to the Board of Directors who will consider them based on some or all of the following criteria: evaluation of statement of need, evaluation of statement of intent, previous non-monetary contributions to the club, level of participation in club activities and other factors deemed appropriate by the Board. Evaluation of Ko’o Program Participant requests will be handled confidentially by the board in a closed session for voting board members only.
Applications accepted from January 1 through March 1 every year.
