The Steere House Employee Development Team (EDT) is a group of employees that organizes fundraising activities to support those programs or initiatives that help to improve the quality of residents' daily life.
For over two decades, a group of employee volunteers who make up the Steere House Employee Development Team have organized fundraising activities to support programs or initiatives to help improve the quality of Steere House residents' daily life.
The Team is active in developing in-house fundraising efforts, such as bake sales, gift basket raffles and other efforts to raise money to support specific resident needs. The Team is also responsible for such community efforts as the Steere House Walk. Each year, the group also organizes the Gifts from The Heart Employee Annual Fund, when employees can designate paycheck contributions for specified Steere House projects.
Through their efforts, they have raised more than $100,000 in the last nine years, making an undeniable impact. With these funds, they have purchased an innovative Music & Memory program, twenty-two electric beds valued at $30,000, a pergola and electric doors for residents’ enjoyment of our outdoor courtyards: spiritual, arts and entertainment programs and so much more.
Four officers serve as the Team’s leadership and all employees are invited to participate by contributing manpower and donations – all to make EDT efforts successful.
Each November, local chapters of the Association for Fundraising Professionals throughout the world set aside one special day to recognize the significant impact of philanthropy and it’s called National Philanthropy Day (NPD).
The Association of Fundraising Professionals Rhode Island (AFP-RI) has proclaimed November 17 as National Philanthropy Day in Rhode Island!
