Volunteer for a great cause

Children’s Trust offers a range of volunteer opportunities. As those opportunities become available, we will post those here and advertise them on our blog, social media outlets and email.

We encourage you to get involved and to help us deliver on our vision to give every child in South Carolina the opportunity to thrive in a healthy, nurturing environment.

Administrative volunteer

Children’s Trust needs occasionally needs individuals to assist with administrative, office and/or event work. These volunteer hours are episodic and often determined by the specifics of a particular projects and/or event. Activities might include preparing packages for mailing, serving as an event host or compiling informational packages. As we need assistance, we will send a notice to potential volunteers with specific tasks, time commitment and schedule information. If you would like to be added to that volunteer list, please submit your name and contact information through the volunteer form below.

Board member

Children’s Trust seeks volunteer board members who have strategic leadership experience in their communities and a passion for the prevention of child abuse, neglect and accidental injuries in South Carolina. Children’s Trust’s Board members set the strategic direction of the organization; provide financial oversight and fiscal accountability; raise funds; advocate; and ensure the organization is prepared for long term, sustainable success. There are 18 board members: 11 at-large members and seven members representing each of the Congressional districts. Board members typically meet five times per year in Columbia. Interested individuals will be required to complete an application and participate in an interview to be considered.  

Midlands gala committee members

The Midlands Gala Committee is crucial to the success of our signature fundraiser- our annual Benefit Gala and Silent Auction held each August. Members work to implement the gala theme through decorations and set up, sell tickets to the event, and solicit donations for our silent auction. The Committee meets once per month beginning in January, typically on Wednesday evenings. Committee members develop strong relationships with each other during their time together.

If you are interested in joining our Midlands committee or starting one in your region, please complete the volunteer form below. All our committee meetings are listed on our events calendar.

Advisory committee members

Communications, Policy and Programs

We are looking for professionals with strong backgrounds in either communications, policy or programs. Committee members will review and advise on strategy and offer suggestions to ensure the organization’s success. They will advise on trends to help Children’s Trust achieve continuous quality improvement. They will also serve as advocates for the organization, connecting Children’s Trust with other experts in their disciplines. We are interested in individuals from all areas of the state. Meetings for each committee will be held four times per year in Columbia, typically during business hours.
