KC-Based Endangered Species Nonprofit Seeks Board Members
American Wolf Foundation was founded in 2018 to provide support for endangered wolf conservation, awareness and coexistence initiatives, with a special focus on the critically-endangered American red wolf (C. rufus), once native to Missouri. AWF is structured with a Board of Directors to manage the organization and an Advisory Board to provide input on science and policy. On Giving Tuesday 2019, American Wolf Foundation launched a bold new campaign to raise $150,000 to help build at least 30 new enclosures for red wolves in captivity to double the captive population, a critical step USFWS says is necessary to ensure the continued existence of the species, and a future reintroduction of a new wild population.



AWF is seeking Board members that are passionate, hands-on, and willing to put in the time to build this incredible organization into a nationwide nonprofit dedicated to endangered wolf conservation, supporting the many facilities involved in captive breeding of American red wolves and Mexican gray wolves. We are interested in Board members of all stripes, and particularly interested in increasing the diversity of our Board. However, our most urgent need is more Board members with grantwriting, financial planning, and donor solicitation skills, and the follow-through to take on those activities personally.

KyMel, Inc is a non-profit whose mission is to provide connecting experiences for families on the cancer journey. We currently have two flagship programs: Camp Hope, a camp for kids with cancer, and Camp SIBsational, a camp for the siblings of kids with cancer. We are 100% volunteer run.
 
This past year we hosted our first annual Kansas City fundraiser called Camp for a Cause.  It raised over $40,000 to help these families facing cancer. We would love to grow that fundraiser to help even more families and thus we are looking to expand and diversify our event planning committee.  Duties would include helping plan the event, volunteering the night of the event, and helping find sponsors.  We anticipate at most one face-to-face meeting every 2 months with other work being done via email.  The event will be in October, 2020.

Volunteer at Lakemary
Growing Community Together
Since our founding in 1969, Lakemary has looked to the open hearts and dedication of the community in which it is nestled to help us provide a multitude of opportunities for adults and children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other intellectual/developmental disabilities.

Because Lakemary offers so many programs and services to the residents and students we serve, there are many volunteer opportunities available that require a varied range of skills, certifications, and preparation. We split these opportunities into two basic classifications: Single visit volunteers will assist Lakemary staff with operational tasks or attend special events where they will be assigned to a team or task by the Volunteer Coordinator. Interactions with individuals served will be supervised by Lakemary’s trained staff
.

Ongoing volunteers will work directly with the adults or children on our campuses. In these positions, you may be asked to coach, teach, mentor, chaperone, or share a skill/experience with one individual or a group. In many cases, these interactions will be supervised by our trained staff
.

We know it takes a special person to volunteer and the generous work of people such as yourself ultimately allows us to fulfill our mission to provide an array of services, programs, housing, and valuable experiences for the individuals we serveTo learn more about how to volunteer or to sign up for a current opportunity, give our Volunteer Coordinator a call at (913) 557-4000!
