Chet Ossowski is a volunteer at the Newport-Mesa and Huntington Beach YMCA’s, nominated by Kathryn Pomroy. This is his story.
Kathryn tells us about Chet’s service:
Chet and I are coming into our third campaign season together. He has been a dedicated volunteer and a true example of YMCA values. I am always astonished by his unique way of asking others to donat e. Chet takes a picture of our donor wall and brings it to potential donors to challenge them to fill a certain bracket. If they do so, he will match their gift. Not only does he take the time to donate himself and ask others to donate, he takes it a step further and matches many of his donors gifts. Each year he has brought the YMCA $5000-$7000 and is always looking for improvement even though his efforts are already above and beyond. He has taught me so much about fundraising and I am so happy to have him as a campaign volunteer!
