Volunteers: The Heart of the Special Education Foundation

At the Special Education Foundation, our mission revolves around supporting students with disabilities, empowering them to thrive in and beyond the classroom. Central to our ability to fulfill this mission are the dedicated volunteers who selflessly contribute their time, energy, and passion to our cause. Whether it's through our mission-driven Board of Directors, annual Dan McLaughlin Golf Tournament and Charity Auction, passionate Women Leaders group, or various committees, our volunteers are the backbone of our organization, and their invaluable efforts deserve recognition and appreciation.

One of the highlights of SEF is our Annual Dan McLaughlin Charity Golf Tournament and Auction, where volunteers come together to make a difference in the lives of students with disabilities.

Behind the scenes, our volunteers serve on various committees, contributing their expertise and ideas to drive innovation and impact within our organization. Whether it's strategic planning, fundraising, or program development, these dedicated individuals bring diverse perspectives and skills to the table, enriching our initiatives and enabling us to better serve students with disabilities and their families.

From organizing logistics to securing sponsorships and recruiting participants, our volunteers work tirelessly to ensure the success of this event. Their commitment to participating during the event not only raises vital funds but also fosters a sense of community and solidarity among participants, sponsors, and constituents alike.
