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.
To learn more about volunteering with Virginia Hemophilia Foundation (VHF):
Assist at an Event
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 work-groups 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 Committee
- Development Committee
- Unite Walk Fundraiser Committee
- Red Tie Soiree Live and Silent Auction Fundraiser Committee
Serve on the Board of Directors
The board of directors is the governing body of VHF. Board members meet periodically to discuss and vote on the affairs of the organization, to support the work of VHF, and to provide mission-based leadership and strategic governance.
