Community Share Groups

Volunteerism at Its Finest

A Community Share Group is group of five or more participants from a non-profit organization. These groups are assigned to specific volunteer shifts and in return for their hard work, the Festival provides the 501c3 organization with a donation based on the number of people volunteering and the total hours worked. National Cherry Festival works with many Community Share Groups and donates over $30,000 annually to support community involvement through Grand Traverse Area Non-Profit organizations.
