Campaign Volunteers

Ways to Get Involved

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the campaign at Wake Forest. While we have established campaign volunteers with specific responsibilities, any Wake Forester can help advance the work of the campaign. Some ways you might consider volunteering are:

  • Talk to others about Wake Forest. Share your story of how Wake Forest helped you achieve the things most important to you. Perhaps it is your Wake Forest experience, a favorite faculty member, the friends you made, the tight-knit community that inspired you to pursue excellence or the avenues you were able to pursue because of your Wake Forest education.
  • Make a gift to Wake Forest. Big or small, all gifts help in equipping students to lead lives that matter. You can give by visiting our online giving form.
  • Attend Wake Forest events. Throughout the campaign, there will be special events in Winston-Salem, throughout North Carolina and across the country. Show your support by attending campaign events and inviting friends. Don’t forget to cheer for your Demon Deacons, too!

What is a Volunteer?

Our campaign volunteers spend countless hours working on behalf of Wake Forest University. They convey their Wake Forest experiences with potential donors, host campaign events, assist with donor solicitations, thank donors and support the University through their time, energy and resources. Our campaign volunteers are proven leaders, significant campaign donors and dedicated advocates who believe in the mission of the institution, and their tireless efforts are critical to the success of the Campaign for Wake Forest.
