Volunteering In The U.S.
While the lifesaving efforts of Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue and our critical conservation work take place in Africa, the organization is headquartered in the United States. The two staff members located in Portland, Oregon are responsible for marketing, fundraising, events and education, both nationally and internationally. So, volunteer help is greatly appreciated!
- Assisting with planning and auction item procurement for our annual gala held in September in Portland

- Assisting with planning and auction item procurement for our annual benefits in April in Buffalo and New York City

Most of the volunteer opportunities can be accomplished remotely and do not require you to be located in Portland.
In addition, we are seeking supporters who wish to help coordinate fundraising and education events in other cities throughout the country. We can offer the support of staff and volunteers from Portland, but it is necessary to have a volunteer within the city hosting the event to assist with coordination. We would be grateful for your help to raise awareness!
If you have questions regarding any of the volunteer opportunities we offer within the U.S., please contact Karin at [email protected].
