Private Events

Why Us?

For the past 25 years, Hands on DC has hosted beautification events. Our experience organizing and running events means we know to how to create events that deliver impactful results for schools and lasting, positive experiences for our sponsor’s and their volunteers.

Our Role

Hands on DC organizes and hosts private beautification events for corporate and non-profit sponsors. Our private beautification events typically consist of painting, landscaping, cleaning and organization, and mural projects. Hands on DC designs beautification projects to fit within a sponsor’s desired event day schedule, and we can accommodate groups of 15 to 150 people.

Hands on DC takes care of all project and supply logistics for events, including serving lunch, if needed — so volunteers can focus on the fun and rewarding experience of serving our local schools.

The Sponsor’s Role

In preparation for the event, we ask for a sponsor leader to participate in a few planning calls and share relevant information with event day volunteers.

Hands on DC requests a donation for sponsored events at $65–75 per person. This donation covers supplies, as well as additional logistics and operational costs. Hands on DC is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization, which allows us to keep our operating costs very low. Any proceeds from sponsored events go back to serving our mission and funding our annual Back-to-School event that helps schools and teachers get ready for the new year.
