The Becky Lee Women’s Support Fund (Becky’s Fund) is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to eradicating domestic violence. Since volunteers are crucial to our existence, Becky’s Fund seeks volunteers who are organized and efficient and who want to learn more about nonprofit development while supporting the fight against domestic violence. Due to the different activities and programs we run, we can generally use whatever time and skills volunteers can give. However, we do ask for a commitment of at least 9 hours a month.

Some of the different areas of outreach and support that a volunteer can become involved in include the following:
Help plan and assist with fundraising events; identify and contact donors; and research grants.
