The Southwest Foundation's work to support Southwest depends on the generosity of its volunteers. There are many ways to get involved on projects large and small. Whether you want to plan a party, write for our newsletter, or stuff an envelope, we have a job that will fit in your busy schedule.

The Foundation welcomes new volunteers at any time of the year. Current volunteer opportunities include:

  • Social Media interns. These new positions, perfect for Southwest students, will work as a team to research and write Facebook posts, tweets for Twitter, and write articles for the print and electronic newsletters. The Internships will last for half or the whole school year at the student’s preference.
  • Communications Committee members. Help plan and execute the Foundation’s Communications plan for print and social media. We need writers, graphic artists, editors, and photographers.

  • Events Committee members. Events Committee members help the Board plan and run fundraising events, help with mailings and record keeping, and thank our generous donors.

  • Printing thank you letters. If you have a little time to help with our thank yous we can use you!

  • Foundation representatives. Represent the Southwest Foundation at school and community events and Southwest class reunions.

    Questions? If you have questions or would like to volunteer please contact Ellen van Iwaarden, Executive Director, at ellen@southwestfoundation.org.
