Volunteer Opportunities

Help strengthen the non-profit community for all New Jerseyans by volunteering in the Center's friendly office!

The Center welcomes the assistance of volunteers, and is actively seeking assistance in our Mercerville, NJ, office in several key areas:

  • Writing newsletter articles: Help us showcase our member organizations or highlight emerging non-profit issues by writing or contributing an article (or more!) for our newsletter! Some interview experience helpful. Strong writing skills needed.
  • Data entry:  Help keep our databases up to date, enter survey data and more.  Working knowledge of a database program (preferably Microsoft Access) needed. Time commitment is flexible
  • General office help: Assistance with mailings, filing, copying/collating of materials and the like.  Some of this work can be done off-site. Time commitment is flexible. 
  • Special assignments: Lend your particular expertise to a variety of specialized initiatives including adding enhanced features and functionality to the Center’s website; assisting with in-depth database design and improvement; helping to plan and execute activities in relation to the Center's Annual Conference; helping us research and analyze new programs to provide benefits to our non-profit members; and much more!

Have an interest or expertise that you don't see here?  Let us know what YOU can do!

Volunteering at the Center is a great way to learn more about non-profits while helping a great cause! Volunteers must provide contact information and references.  Our regular office hours are 9AM – 5PM,  but in some cases, work could be done at home or via email.
