MDA Virtual Support Volunteer Opportunity

Save to Favorites

Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA)

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 8 people are interested

Volunteers are essential to MDA’s mission of transforming the lives of people living with muscular dystrophy, ALS, and related neuromuscular diseases. While much of our volunteer opportunities have shifted to a more virtual setting, we are looking for a group of committed volunteers to assist with various projects to support our fundraising programs. Assignments can include working with MDA's Fill the Boot program to support our firefighter partners, speaking with MDA's largest organizational partners, working with special events teams to secure auction items, supporting our participants with their fundraising and more.

This volunteer opportunity will be done virtually from your home. By signing up, you will be contacted once a volunteer opportunity becomes available and you’ll be asked to attend a training. Following successful completion of the training, you'll work hand in hand with an MDA staff partner or another volunteer leader to ensure your volunteer experience is a rewarding one, while helping to fuel MDA’s mission.

Volunteer Requirements: While the position is remote, volunteers will need access to a computer, phone, and internet.
