Becoming a KQED volunteer is a great way to show your support for public broadcasting and all the quality programming we offer. Your support helps us provide quality television and radio programs right here in Northern California. You really can make a difference.
Fundraising Drives (Individuals)
KQED Television and Radio pledge drives are a great way to support your community and have fun doing it! Volunteers help out by answering phones and taking donations on our computer system. Food and parking are FREE!
Just fill out the Individual Volunteer Information Form to be contacted for future pledge drives. A variety of shifts are available, and all are located at the KQED Studio at 2601 Mariposa Street, San Francisco. You must be 16 years of age or older. Call (415) 553-2153 or email email@example.com.
Fundraising Drives (Groups)
Companies and organizations are encouraged to come in as a fundraising group in exchange for on-air credit. Some of the benefits of participating include verbal acknowledgements, camera pans of the volunteers, table signs, and an on-air graphic slide. Call (415) 553-2153 or fill out a Group Volunteer Information Form to be contacted for future fundraising drives.
Periodically, a three-to-four week training program takes place on Friday mornings for members interested in providing tours of KQED to school groups and adult organizations. All KQED members are eligible and notification will be made well in advance of upcoming trainings. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
KQED events include Heritage Month receptions, screenings, live productions, and member tours. Duties usually include serving refreshments, greeting and seating guests, cleaning up, etc.
Coming of Age
KQED is proud to be a sponsor of Coming of Age. The Coming of Age initiative seeks to harness the talents, skills and energy of one of our most valuable resources: people age 50+. Coming of Age develops volunteers in two ways: by helping organizations strengthen their capabilities, and by helping people 50+ explore passions, pursue lifelong learning, become leaders, and engage in meaningful service to the community. Please visit www.comingofage.org/bayarea for more information.
