Get Involved

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Greater New York Chapter has offices in three locations – Manhattan, Westchester, and Long Island. The success of our events is attributed to our dedicated volunteers whose commitment makes a significant difference to the CF community. The Chapter offers several volunteer opportunities for the following events:

Great Strides
CFF Stair Climb 
CF Cycle For Life
Young Professional Leadership Committee
Golf Outings

Internship Program

Each office offers an internship program for high school, college and graduate students interested in learning more about event planning, fundraising, and development. Assisting with the Chapter’s major events – Great Strides, CF Cycle for Life, galas and YPLC events – interns will receive hands on experience in fundraising, logistics, and administrative projects.


In The Office

Throughout the year volunteers can assist at local chapter offices with special projects, which include: mailings, phone calls, data entry, graphic design, and more!  

For more information regarding our volunteer opportunities and Internship Program, please contact Shara Swift at sswift@cff.org or 212-986-8783.

ProCUREment Committee

The ProCUREment Committee is a team dedicated to securing donations that are auctioned at Chapter events. A large percentage of the funds the Chapter raises are based on this effort! It’s a fun and easy way to get involved with an organization that is making huge strides toward a cure for cystic fibrosis. To join this dynamic team, please contact Lori Peterzell at LPeterzell@cff.org!
