Donate Time – Volunteer

Volunteers are the heart of CFRI. Many have experienced great satisfaction as they contributed their time, expertise and experience over many years.

CFRI welcomes your volunteer inquiry!

We are always looking for help in the office, at our events, with technology, and as Ambassadors for CFRI in communities across the United States and the world. In some instances, it can even be possible to work from home.
