Volunteers are an essential part of the work we do at MRG. From hands on fundraising opportunities, to data entry, to being the first person to greet a supporter at an event — there are many key roles that volunteers can play behind the scenes and at the forefront of our work:

  • At MRG Events: Helping with planning, set-up, take-down, and registration
  • In the Office: Process grant applications, enter data, join a mailing party
  • In the Community: Table at workplace giving events, community events, and fairs
  • Professional Services: We’re especially grateful for in-kind catering, graphic design, and photography

Some volunteers help out on a weekly or monthly basis and some prefer to join in when we have a big project or a mailing party. Whatever your availability is let us know your interests and skills and we will put you to work! For more information about volunteering, contact Katherine Quaid, MRG’s program associate: katherine@mrgfoundation.org or 503-289-1517.
