Membership Volunteers

Looking for a low-pressure way to contribute to keeping San Francisco Bay healthy? San Francisco Baykeeper is seeking volunteers to assist with the upkeep of our member database. Membership volunteers play an important role in keeping our records organized and up-to-date, enabling Baykeeper to efficiently and effectively work to stop pollution in San Francisco Bay.

Projects include:

  • Ensuring that member information is accurate and up-to-date.
  • Data cleaning: merge duplicate records, reorganize information to create consistent documentation, update outdated addresses, and more.
  • Documenting recent interactions with members.

Skills in Microsoft Excel and a general technological adeptness preferred. Prior database experience is helpful but not necessary. The ideal volunteer will be available to come into our office once a week or every two weeks, during regular office hours. Dates and hours are flexible depending on your availability. Email info@baykeeper.org to pursue this volunteer opportunity.
