Volunteer with us!


Thank you to our many committee and project volunteers! 

One of the many ways our members become involved in Philanthropy Southwest is by serving on a committee.

  • Committee members recommend and develop policies that help shape our organization's work.
  • The commitment level for each committee varies, but there is an expectation that members will attend three meetings per year (2 in person) and are willing to participate in independent projects as they arise.
  • We encourage members to choose committees that are best suited to their professional strengths and/or interests.

Consider getting involved with one of these committees:

Audit and Finance
Public Policy 
Annual Conference
Educational Programs
Committee interest and recruitment takes place in late fall.   
Committees meet from January 1 - December 31
Committee membership depends on the availability of open slots and, in certain instances, a proper skills match.

Another way to volunteer - short-term/periodic support:

If you don't have the time or flexibility to be involved on a committee for a year, we invite you to help with short-term events or projects, like teaching or co-teaching at a seminar in your area of expertise, hosting a gathering in your office or community, or meeting with legislators in your area.
