Our volunteers are the heart & soul and hands & feet that power the promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever. This is everybody’s fight and we need you now more than ever! Know that each minute you share not only allows us to continually power the promise, it gives another minute of hope to those affected by breast cancer.

Event Volunteers
Check back closer to our annual Pink! gala and the Race for the Cure for day-of event volunteer opportunities. Did you know that Komen Austin has only 7 staff members? The large-scale fundraisers and educational events we host would not be possible with the help of over 2,000 volunteers each year!

Office Volunteers
Office volunteers support the promise by providing administrative, clerical and event assistance. Each office volunteers has a weekly 3-4 hour shift. If you’re looking for a regular weekly gig, this may be a great fit! More details on this opportunity are available here

Board of Directors
The expertise of accountants, lawyers, communications professionals and more are all needed to make our organization the best that it can be. Passionate about the cause and have profession skills to offer? Consider joining the Komen Austin Board of Directors!

The founder of Susan G. Komen said it best, “We need a lot of human capital and energy to get to the point where we can say we have eradicated this disease.” – Nancy Brinker
