Corporate Giving

Many companies care about the well-being of their communities and offer corporate giving programs or company-sponsored foundations that can aid BECOME’s work to transform communities. If you work for a company that has a social responsibility focus and would like to support BECOME, investigate your company’s corporate giving opportunities. We invite you to email us at if your organization has questions. Thank you for your consideration!

Community Ambassador/Volunteer

Become a community ambassador or volunteer for social change!

We encourage community members that we’ve worked with to share what they’ve learned with neighboring communities. BECOME Community Ambassadors are volunteers who take the lead in representing our organization in the community, build relationships with key stakeholders, and have the opportunity to acquire important skills in areas of program and community development, evaluation, and organizational development.

We also have other various volunteer opportunities that you may be interested in. We welcome your inquiries. Email us at to learn more about our Community Ambassador program and other volunteer opportunities.
