Make a Difference in the Coastal Bend

If you're interested in any of the volunteer or fundraising opportunities below, contact us through our website or call 361-882-2529. Volunteer opportunities for our special events are first offered to donors.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer with Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)

VITA volunteers are needed every tax season to help as many low- to moderate-income taxpayers as possible. All volunteers receive training from IRS-certified trainers and must pass an exam before helping taxpayers file their returns.

Volunteer for the Fund Distribution Process

Our Fund Distribution Process requires many panels of community volunteers. To participate, you must be a donor and be able to dedicate 15-20 hours of time to your assigned panel.

Volunteer for Operation Supply Our Students (Operation SOS)

You can volunteer with us as an individual or corporation for sorting school supplies, stuffing the bags or for distribution day. Schools come by our building to pick up the donations and the more hands on deck, the better. 

Fundraising Opportunities

Run a Workplace Campaign

Businesses throughout the Coastal Bend region run an annual workplace campaign with us, which gives their employees a chance to donate through payroll deductions, one-time gifts and/or special events. Visit our Workplace Campaign page to learn more about how they operate and how you can get started.

Donate with an Individual Gift

Many generous donors make a huge difference in the lives of Coastal Bend residents in need by making an individual gift to our Community Investment Fund. Read through our Annual Report and our Individual Gifts pages to see the effect these gifts have for thousands of people and make your donation today.

Participate in the Golf Classic

Every year, we host our Golf Classic–a great event where the community to comes together and golfs for a good cause. Proceeds from this event benefit our Community Investment Fund, which we use to change lives in the areas of education, health and financial stability. Of course, this special event of ours wouldn't be a success if it weren't for our sponsors. Read more about the Golf Classic and register today.
