Types of Volunteers

We Depend on People Like You

We match volunteers to positions based on ability, interests and availability. Consider your goals, skills and purpose when you volunteer for the opportunity that best suits you. Note: Many volunteer positions require a background check plus ongoing training.

Opportunities:

Fundraising

Help us secure donated goods and services, write grants and/or sponsorship proposals, build partnerships with local companies, conduct research on giving campaigns conducted by local companies, organize a frequent-flier donation campaign, sell paper Make-A-Wish® stars or plan/organize an external event to benefit Make-A-Wish.

Office

Assist with miscellaneous projects at the office, including phone calls, wish research, mailings, etc. 

Special Events

Plan, organize, and implement successful Make-A-Wish fundraising events by working on event committees, helping out on the event day and/or participating in the event.

Translator

Some wish kids come from non-English-speaking families, and we need help to determine their wish. Translators have the option of becoming fully trained wish granting volunteers. They can also provide short-term support as needed.

Wish Granter

Wish granters meet the family, help the wish child determine the wish and act as a liaison between Make-A-Wish staff members and the family during the planning process.  Wish granters must be at least 18 years old and must attend a mandatory in-depth training session.
