Volunteer Opportunities

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 offices offer several volunteer opportunities for the following:

  • Great Strides 2013
  • CF Cycle For Life
  • Young Professional Leadership Committee events
  • Golf Outings
  • Data entry
  • Mailings

Additionally, volunteers are needed to help with projects in our offices.  The Foundation values the service of our volunteers who have joined us in the fight to cure CF.


Internship Program

Each office offers an internship program for 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 Finest events – interns will receive hands-on experience in fundraising, logistics and administrative projects.

For more information regarding our Internship and Volunteer programs, please contact Suzette Aviles at saviles@cff.org or 212-986-8783.


ProCUREment Committee

newly created 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.

We are asking that members of the ProCUREment team collect a total of 12 donations a year (approximately one donation a month). These donations should have a value of $25 or more and will be used at various events throughout the year in silent auctions, live auctions, opportunity drawings, or gift bags.

The committee will meet twice a year and will have quarterly phone calls to track each member’s progress. We are asking each member to commit to at least two years on the committee. Members will receive special incentives and recognition for their efforts, including free tickets to many of our events.  Most importantly, you will have a direct hand in bringing us closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis!

To join this dynamic team, please contact Kelli Klasko, Logistics Specialist, at 212-986-8783 or kklasko@cff.org.
