McDonough County VIBE - Volunteers Interested in Benefiting Everyone!
Become VIBE friendly! Do something for others - create a good VIBE!
Mission: McDonough County VIBE strives to promote the values of honesty, integrity, fairness, strong stewardship of resources and socio-economic status. We will seek to provide resources to organizations that foster this value system and help people in need. These standards are the essence of our foundation.
Company Overview: VIBE (VOLUNTEERS INTERESTED IN BENEFITING EVERYONE) is a non-profit volunteer organization founded in 2010 by a group of concerned citizens. These individuals have seen that cutbacks in funding have caused continued financial stress for social service organizations.
As a result, they decided to host an annual auction fundraiser to help address some of these needs. With many years of success in organizing this type of fundraiser, Kassie Courson has stepped up as the founding president to lead the efforts.
Each year all proceeds will go to selected McDonough county non-profit organizations. Applications are accepted and different organizations will be chosen each year.
The drop in our logo represents each act of kindness creating a positive vibration throughout our communities. Every volunteer and every donation is greatly appreciated by our organization and those we support.
Our primary focus will be to those charitable institutions committed to these values including:
*Fostering a culture of commitment to diversity and inclusion
*Organization development for people in need
*Social reform for "in-need" and "at-risk" individuals
*Nurturance of youth and family
