Volunteering

Sep 24, 2022For Parents, Resources

Volunteering at Northwest Fencing Center takes on many forms! As a non-profit, NWFC is committed to keeping operating costs as low as possible so we can keep providing fencing to our communities.

Volunteers help NWFC operate efficiently by assisting in many areas. Volunteers help run tournaments, host fencing demonstrations, special events, fundraising and even keep the club neat and clean.

When you volunteer at NWFC you will learn more about fencing, meet other members of the community, help develop the sport of fencing, and gain a sense of investment in the club. We encourage all members of the NWFC community to volunteer, whether they are athletes, parents, or friends.

Volunteer Hours & Matching:
Hours tracking is also very important for middle/high school volunteers and adults whose companies match donations are all vital to the success of the club.

Some companies will match volunteer hours with a direct donation to the club. Please check if your employer will match volunteer hours and be sure to note this when you sign-up. We will send you an email reminder to log your hours with your employer.

VOLUNTEERING AT NWFC

NWFC is an awesome place to fence, connect, and serve!

Did you know that as a non-profit organization, we absolutely depend on our volunteers to fulfill our mission? As a member (or friend or family member!), you can dive deeper into belonging by volunteering your time and talents. As an added benefit, you are helping to keep club costs affordable, AND you will get to hang out with your fencing family. Every hour spent volunteering frees up our amazing coaches and management team to focus on coaching, programming, facilities, fundraising, publicity, and operations.  YOU can make a big difference!
