Volunteers make The Women's Fund

The Women’s Fund runs on volunteers, whose time, energy and expertise expand the capacity of our very small staff and help us set, adjust and accomplish our goals. From our Leadership Council members to members of the five other standing committees to LifeWork mentors and the people that show up on Mother’s Day to hand out water to Tiara 5K runners, we rely on you all to help us get the job done.

We'd love to have you join our community as a volunteer. There are many possible roles to play.

The first step to volunteer is to reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator and fill out our Volunteer Application.

We will get back to you to discuss the right match.
