Volunteer with Us

CFI-Portland is a 100% volunteer-run organization. CFI headquarters provides professional legal and administrative support, but everything we do at the local level is done by dedicated volunteers who contribute their time, energy, and ideas to making our community prosper.

CFI-Portland volunteers work on a wide range of duties. We develop long-term strategy in conjunction with CFI headquarters, track finances and membership, and identify and start new programs. We publish a monthly newsletter, and maintain communication with our members. We manage online sites, and we write letters to the editors of local publications. We identify issues that are of concern to us, and form coalitions with other organizations to address them. We organize events and programs. We reserve venues and manage logistics. We teach young people, and develop curricula. We staff information tables, and we prepare food to bring to events.

The more volunteers we have at all levels of involvement,
the more we can do!

If you are interested in helping out at any level, whether as a leader who helps shape the future of the community, as a manager who makes sure existing programs run well and reliably, or as a supporting volunteer who helps by taking on limited tasks such as copying, making phone calls, or baking cookies, please contact portland@centerforinquiry.net.

And if you have a great program idea you would like to implement or if you can contribute specific legal, PR, IT/Web, fundraising, or other expertise, please let us know.
