BENEFITS OF VOLUNTEERING

​Our volunteers say giving their time to the Foundation has:

  • Improved their health

  • Minimized their stress levels

  • Increased their community volunteer hours

  • Allowed them to contribute to a cause that affects them personally

  • Developed professional skills

  • Encouraged them to stay connected socially 


Motivators for volunteering:

Personal connection to the cause

Many people through family, friends, or co-workers know someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Volunteers may be living with breast cancer, or know of people touched by the disease and want to help by volunteering their time and expertise.

Social responsibility

Volunteers want to contribute back to society and seek a credible non-profit organization with which to get involved. The Foundation was founded by volunteers and continues to rely heavily on the support of volunteers.

Skill development

Organizing committees at the Foundation offer experience in marketing, media, event management, and more. Volunteering provides an excellent opportunity to gain professional experience in a variety of areas.
