PbP selects a different theme to champion from year to year. Local chapters select a community-based organization that is focused on issues within that theme and tailors a year-long campaign to help its fundraising, community outreach and public awareness efforts.
Fundraising PbP believes effecting change requires more than a good heart. Each campaign therefore incorporates multiple fundraising components where we seek to channel new capital to our partners' efforts.
Community Outreach As part of our mission, we seek to reach out to the community at large to effect change in the most efficient manner possible. Therefore we tailor our service projects to enable all members of the community to get involved as their time, skills, and interest permit. Projects are designed in cooperation with our partner, usually in direct response to a community need, and range from discrete one-day activities to ongoing service commitments.
Public Awareness We believe that change starts with the individual. To this end, initiatives targeted at raising public awareness of important social issues play a prominent role in the success of our campaigns.
PbP works with our partner to customize each campaign according to their needs. PbP then mobilizes its diverse network of public, private and community resources to achieve these goals. Past efforts have included resume-writing workshops, tutorials for immigrant children, community town hall meetings, and parent-child activities to enhance community connectedness. Our annual signature fundraising event is Plate by Plate our Annual Tasting Benefit, featuring star chefs, top rated restaurants and beverages from around the world. 100% of the net proceeds raised from Plate by Plate are remitted to our partner organization.
