The Chinese Heritage Foundation warmly welcomes your donation of your precious gift of time.

We need help with many regular Foundation events, such as A Passage to China at Mall of America, outreach, membership development, fundraising, and other functions.  Please contact us at [email protected] about current opportunities; or call us at 612.722.4895.

Knowing the importance of this rare gift, we regularly recognize those individuals who have given us an extraordinary measure of their time and talent with our Volunteer of the Year award.

Some opportunities are listed below.

Annual Open House — Join us to celebrate our achievements for the year: send out invitations and follow up on responses, develop and carry out event logistics, serve as hosts/hostesses at the event, and follow up on interested attendees.

Calligraphy Committee — Are you good at name translation and/or Chinese calligraphy? Or perhaps fortune telling? Come with us as we visit schools, corporations, and festivals throughout the year and join in the fun!

Membership Development — Help increase public awareness of our Foundation and attract new members and/or grant applicants. Help us identify and contact potential members/donors, keep them informed of our upcoming activities and encourage philanthropy in our community.

New Program Development — We welcome your creative ideas about new, innovative programs with which to engage our public. If you would like to form a group around a specific interest or concern, please contact us and we will respond.

Volunteer Photographer — come help us document our activities and hone your skills!  We always welcome new photographers!
