The Lupus Foundation of Minnesota (LFM) always needs extra hands to help those whose lives are touched by lupus. Complete the Volunteer Application and consider involvement in one of the following areas:
Support Group Facilitator or Lupus Buddy
Meet regularly with lupus patients, discuss various aspects of living with the disease and be available for phone support to answer questions about living with lupus. Most support group facilitators have lupus or have a family member with lupus, however, it’s not required. LFM offers training to interested facilitators. See Professional Development for more information.
Special Event Volunteer
Attend one of the many events, expos or health and wellness fairs throughout the year. Duties vary, but may include set-up, clean-up, distributing information and selling items.
Special Event Committee Members
Assist in planning and organizing creative special events. Responsibilities differ by event and accommodate most physical limitations. Current annual events include the Lupus Golf Classic, and the Lupus Walk for Hope and 5K Run in the Twin Cities, Rochester and Duluth.
Help fulfill our mission and daily requests for support and educational information. Projects include light data entry (especially before and after events) assisting with mailings, distributing information and other general office tasks. To volunteer, please submit an application (link to volunteer application). For more information on any of the volunteer positions, contact the LFM development staff.
Plan an event to benefit the Lupus Foundation of Minnesota. There are countless ways to raise funds and we’re open to exploring ideas with you. All events do require a letter of approval from LFM. Contact us to discuss your ideas!
