Online Resource Library
The Online Resource Library was established for Clubs in order to assist Members in their mission of providing expanded service to youth and the community.
The Resource Library is divided into three sections:
Club Activities – Projects or programs that have earned Community Projects Awards (CPA) recognition, were submitted by Clubs for international program status consideration or are examples of Club projects/programs that are unique to the organization and innovative, or unduplicated, in design and scope
Fundraising – Suggested ideas and successful fundraising projects completed and documented by Clubs and listed by fundraising category
Resources – Featuring endorsed, national and regional organizations
that offer service resources and/or partnering opportunities to Optimists,
listed by geographical location
Clubs/Members are encouraged to review the listings and communicate directly with the designated contact representative for any organization, resource or Club provided in the Resource Library.
The Resource Library is an ongoing work in progress, with information updated on a regular basis.
Clubs that would like to submit an activity/program or fundraising project or recommend a community resource organization for consideration for inclusion in the Resource Library can contact the Programs Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or (800) 500-8130, ext. 235. The Programs Department will send the appropriate submission form for your Club to fill out in order to initiate the evaluation process.
Club activities/programs/projects will only be listed if the submitting Club agrees to allow the contact information of the project’s coordinating Member to be listed on the Resource Library site.
Community organizations nominated for inclusion must provide a service scope large enough to cover an entire state, province, country and/or District.
