Volunteer

Volunteers are the “lifeblood” of any non-profit organization – ours included. They are the people who step forward to work at events, sit on committees, and volunteer to serve on our board of directors. Scroll down to learn more about our volunteer opportunities or contact us at info@vahemophilia.org or 804-740-8643.

Assist at an Event

Virginia Hemophilia Foundation (VHF) events and programs require the help of volunteers to run smoothly. Jobs include: un-load, set-up, registration and check-in, picture taking, clean up, and more! Training and previous experience is not a requirement, but good communication, being a team player, organizational skills and reliability is a must.

Serve on a Committee

Committees are small workgroups with a particular focus that meet a few times a year (typically via conference call). Committees work together and present their findings and recommendations to the board of directors.

Examples of Committees

  • Advocacy Work Group
  • Program Development
  • Fundraiser Committees (Trick or Trot, Bowling for Bleeding Disorders, and Spring Fundraiser)
