New Opportunity – Fall 2013
The Lilith Fund is looking for a few outstanding Outreach Committee volunteers! Our Outreach Committee is responsible for representing Lilith at events in the community in Austin, Houston and San Antonio. The committee is also responsible for hosting community trainings and educational sessions. Lastly, the Outreach Committee oversees work on building the movement, advocacy efforts, and diversity and inclusivity.
The Outreach Committee is headquartered in Houston with members in Austin as well. The committee meets once a month – members may attend in person or teleconference in. Committee volunteers are expected to contribute at least 5 hours a month to committee projects. If you are interested in joining the Outreach Committee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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, October 12, 2013, from 1-5 p.m. The location is in the Bouldin area of South Austin – exact details will be emailed to participants.
We are also especially pleased to announce that we’ll be hosting our inaugural Houston volunteer training on Saturday, October 19, 2013 from 1-5 p.m. The location is close to the University of Houston campus – exact details will be emailed to participants.
- 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.
