Volunteers

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our foundation. We rely on a network of dedicated volunteers from a variety of sectors and careers who support our efforts through their on-going hard work. Our very small staff of one works very closely with these amazing volunteers.

From the directors on our board to the scholarship coordinators to the marketing, copywriting and administration volunteers, it is only through the work of volunteers that we are able to deliver such valuable programs. Every year volunteers give more than 7,488 hours of their time. We are deeply grateful!

None of this would be possible without the support of these lead volunteers and others!
