We are currently seeking volunteers to help with special event planning during the busy fall season!

Events include a bike ride, major donor dinner, end of the year fundraising campaigns, and preparation for the annual spring Gala. Volunteers will be involved in all aspects of planning and executing events and will gain a strong knowledge of nonprofit fundraising techniques and best practices. Volunteers should be organized, have good communication skills and be interested in fundraising.

Other opportunities and experiences may arise as well. GUW will work with the volunteers to provide a fulfilling experience, based on the individuals’ interests and skills. For more information and to apply, please email Peter Carlson at director@giveuswings.org with your interest and a simple resume.

Volunteers are always needed and welcomed at Give Us Wings! There are many opportunities, from one-day administrative tasks to involvement on a more long-term basis. There is always something going on at Give Us Wings, and we need you, your skills and generosity!
