Current Volunteer and Internship Opportunities
As a nonprofit, the WDRC relies on the generous support of volunteers. There are many ways to get involved and contribute to peace building in Whatcom County.
Fundraising Events Committee Member
The WDRC Fundraising Events Committee is looking for community member(s) to volunteer in a committee support role. We are looking for highly-motivated individuals who love events to assist our committee in obtaining silent auction donations and dessert dash contributions for our annual Peace Builder Awards which takes place in November. This event is the largest fundraiser our organization, and the Fundraising Events Committee plays a vital part in helping us meet our fundraising goals. The time commitment includes a one-hour committee meeting once a month, as well as several hours per month contacting prospects for donations and picking up items. Volunteers are needed immediately. Volunteering with the WDRC Fundraising Events Committee is a great introduction to Board service, while being a fun opportunity to connect with the community in a new way. Please email a resume to Committee Chair Donna Loken.
The WDRC Board of Directors is currently accepting applications for new Board members. If you believe in our mission, and want help advance our organization through this type of volunteer service, please consider submitting cover letter and application (hyperlink to volunteer application) today. While all applicants will be considered, the Board is particularly interested in candidates who will enthusiastically assist with our important donor development and fundraising efforts, as well as candidates who are uniquely positioned to help us expand our relationships throughout all of Whatcom County. Questions? Please contact Moonwater, Executive Director or Catherine Riordan, Board President.
