Are you interested in working with IDF? We have a nationwide network of dedicated volunteers committed to increasing awareness of primary immunodeficiency (PI) in local communities. Many serve as peer support volunteers to offer encouragement and understanding to others as they live with PI. Others provide information on local resources, host educational meetings, advocate for public policy, and often organize fundraising events throughout the country.
There are many opportunities to use your time and talents to make a difference. IDF knows your time is valuable and offers flexible options for even the busiest people.
Do you know who your elected officials are? When was the last time you stood up and voiced your opinion about an issue that affects you? It’s time to be your own advocate and stand up for individuals with PI. Ensure access to your medical care, improve the quality of life for people with PI, and tell your story. You can make a difference!
You can create understanding about PI and IDF by regularly distributing materials to medical facilities, home healthcare companies, schools and other locations in your local community.
Do you want to make a big impact on the PI community? Consider working with IDF on a fundraising project! Most likely, you have networks and the social media skills that will make you a great fundraising volunteer. Plus, helping to raise funds for IDF and awareness for primary immunodeficiency becomes a win-win. While you’re helping our community, you’re also gaining valuable leadership experience and adding a great item to your resume! Whether you want to set up a local Walk for Primary Immunodeficiency, do an event at your school or work, or you have another creative idea, you can be a great volunteer!
Peer Support Volunteers
Would you like to help other patients and family members personally affected by PI? You can be a volunteer through our Peer Support Program. These volunteers must be patients or immediate family members of a patient with PI.
Plasma Partner Program Volunteers
You must receive immunoglobulin (Ig) replacement therapy to volunteer through the IDF Plasma Partners Program. These volunteers visit plasma centers, which includes the opportunity to tour the center and thank the staff and donors for their lifesaving commitment. Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
