Volunteer Opportunities 

  •  Volunteer with our hotline

Ever since the Lilith Fund was founded in 2001, we have offered both English- and Spanish-language hotlines.  Our hotline volunteers help return clients’ calls.

All you need is a phone, internet access, and at least 3 hours per month. You will be responsible for returning voicemails and working with clients to see them through the process of getting funding for their abortion.

Volunteer training is offered on a quarterly basis.  The next Austin training will be held on Saturday, February 1, from 1-5 p.m.  The location is in East Austin – exact details will be emailed to participants.  

We will also be training volunteers in Houston, San Antonio, and El Paso in 2014. Watch for upcoming opportunities.

To be accepted for training, candidates must fill out our hotline volunteer application and email the completed form to kat@lilithfund.org.

  •  Help plan and host upcoming events and fundraisers

Whether it’s the annual Reproductive Equity Awards, house parties throughout Texas, or book signings featuring prominent authors, the Lilith Fund usually has an event in the works.  We need volunteers to help with all aspects of organizing these events and fundraisers.

  •  Host your own benefit event

We’ll happily support your house party, happy hour, Twitter fundraiser or other benefit event.  Just let us know your plans and we’ll help ensure that your event is a success.  Whether you collect $20 in lieu of birthday gifts or raise $2,000 at a giant neighborhood yard sale – every event helps!

  • Assist with our mailings

The Lilith Fund completes several major bulk mailings a year to send out our newsletter, recruit donors and sponsors, announce upcoming events, and solicit donations.

  • Help research grants

The Lilith Fund relies on grants from various foundations and agencies to continue operating.  If you’re grant-savvy, we need your help.

To get involved with any of these volunteer opportunities, please email info@lilithfund.org for more information.
