Volunteer Opportunities

Catlin Gabel Fund Ambassadors

The Catlin Gabel Fund Committee is made up of 16 parent volunteers. These dedicated ambassadors reach out to families in their grade to educate them about the importance of the CG Fund, generate enthusiasm for events like the annual auction, and annual giving. If you love this school and feel passionately about giving back, this role might be for you!

Please contact Evan Lewis, Catlin Gabel Fund Director, to learn more about volunteering for the Catlin Gabel Fund.

Annual Auction

The Auction is the school’s largest annual fundraising event and raises approximately 35% of the Catlin Gabel Fund. We rely on dedicated parent volunteers to make this possible!

Organizing a successful auction takes thoughtful preparation and dedication. Auction proceeds directly support our students, teachers and programs. We rely on the generous volunteer support from our community to plan, organize and manage this remarkable community event. Some duties are ongoing for months at a time, while others require just an hour or two of your time.
