The foundation receives offers from many people who are interested in getting involved in the issues we care about. However, because we fund the efforts of others who work in the field and do not do that work ourselves, we do not accept volunteers at the foundation. The organizations we fund (and many others like them) have the greatest need for volunteers to achieve their goals and unique missions. Below are some of the best online resources available for learning more about volunteer opportunities.
