Volunteer

PIF is powered by people. We have a small team of full-time employees, and an extensive team of volunteers with a diverse range of professional experience. We need people of all sorts of experience – from the seasoned senior execs through to the bright young leaders of our future.

PIF Committees

The Committees are a great place to build your professional networks, lend your expertise, get your hands ‘dirty’, and meet like-minded people – while making a difference to the persistent problem of homelessness. 

There is a range of committees that you can join upon invitation if your company is a donor.

Join the PIF House Committee to help us build. Or the Beneficiary Review Committee to ensure we work with the right partners and measure impact.  

Our Event Committees need people with fundraising / event experience. We need cyclists, sailors, walkers and runners. We also need people who can persuade others to sleep rough for a night, get their chequebooks out, or even just to get up on the dancefloor 

Our Future Leaders Committee is the place to meet other early-career professionals from across the industry who want to make a difference. 

To put forward your expression of interest in joining a committee, please email Claudia Ferrari: cferrari@pif.com.au

Event volunteers

Our events bring in a big portion of our fundraising dollars and helps connect our industry in a really fun (and sometimes slightly competitive) way. But PIF is a small lean charity and we couldn’t do it without the generous support of our event volunteers’ time. We absolutely depend on people like you.

As an event volunteer for PIF you could be doing any of the following critical tasks:

  • Awareness-raising / promoting – everything from sharing the event on social through to putting up posters or making phone calls to get people on board 
  • Event planning (usually in the office)  
  • Event logistics (eg, bump-in, registration of participants, cloaking, runners, marshalling, drink station attendants, bump out) 
  • Photography / videography / postproduction 

If you have events experience (or would like to get some) – please sign up to our eNews

Volunteer in one of our offices

Whether you are a student seeking some professional experience, or you have recently retired – or anything in between – if you have a regular block of hours you can spare then we can always find ways to utilise your skills and knowledge.

If you have experience in office administration (or would like to get some), please email Maureen Collins mcollins@pif.com.au  

Things we need help with include: 

  • Administration 
  • Data entry and analysis 
  • Research 
  • Fundraising 
  • Writing (blog posts, grant applications).
