Get Involved

Are you aware of the “three T’s” of philanthropy? Time. Talent. Treasure. Organizations often do a wonderful job asking for and thanking donors for their treasure, but time and talent are just as critical to an institution’s success. Church Farm School is beyond grateful to all of its volunteers and community members who also support our mission through gifts of time and talent. Below are some of our various opportunities.
Board of Directors – The Church Farm School Board of Directors is a committed group of men and women who lend their expertise to various areas, including governance, facilities management, student enrollment and marketing and fundraising. Please note that the Board of Directors is a limited, extra committed volunteer opportunity that cannot be extended to all whom are interested. If you are interested in learning more about the Board of Directors, contact Jon Knorr at jknorr@gocfs.net and he will discuss this unique opportunity with you more specifically.
Alumni Association Executive Council – Alumni who are interested in helping CFS stay engaged and connected with all alumni, including mentorship, professional networking, supporting event attendance and fundraising should consider joining the Alumni Association Executive Council. If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact Lori McDermott at lmcdermott@gocfs.net and she will discuss this opportunity with you more specifically.
Leadership Council – Interested in providing professional advice and mentorship to our young men? Do you work for a business that may be in a position to offer a corporate sponsorship or support CFS through the EITC/OSTC tax credit programs? The Leadership Council is a way for local Chester County professionals to offer their expertise to help guide our seniors, through partnership with Director of College GuidanceTiffany Scott, as they consider life after CFS. If you are interested in joining the Leadership Council, please contact Lori McDermott at lmcdermott@gocfs.net and she will discuss this opportunity with you more specifically.
CFS Ambassadors – Do you know families for whom Church Farm School would be a wonderful experience? Do you have ideas on how to spread the word about CFS to a larger audience? Are you intimately familiar with the CFS experience and would be willing to answer questions from prospective families and donors and share your story? If any of these opportunities sound appealing, please contact Stefanie Claypoole at sclaypoole@gocfs.net
CFS Parents' Association - Help us spread the good word about Church Farm School, engage with administration and faculty on new initiatives and more. If interested in learning more, contact Director of Student Life Chet Blair at cblair@gocfs.net or send an email to cfspa@gocfs.net
Fundraising/Event Volunteers – Do you believe in the power of philanthropy and are willing to help ask for support and/or thank Church Farm School donors? Through peer-to-peer outreach, we hope to grow CFS’ philanthropic support and we could use your help! Through profiles, letter signing, thank you card and/or phone calls, event planning and attendance or peer-to-peer solicitations, your support as a fundraising volunteer will make CFS fundraising even more successful. If you are interested in helping the Development Team, please contact Jennifer Devine at jdevine@gocfs.net and she would be happy to discuss the various opportunities with you.
Misc. Volunteering - There are many other opportunities to lend your time and talent to CFS, including volunteering in our Griffin Clothes Closet, participating in our Chapel Council, donating photography or videography services and more! Contact Jennifer Devine at jdevine@gocfs.net with your ideas!
