Volunteer Opportunities

Pike Place Market Foundation

Volunteering your time and talent is a fun and easy way to support the Pike Place Market community. Each year, hundreds of dedicated volunteers contribute thousands of hours to ensure the success of Market programs and events.

For more details on any of the below, please contact us by filling out the volunteer form below. One of our staff members will be in touch with you shortly!


VOLUNTEER AT AN EVENT

We always need help in our big events like Celebrate the Market! and Sunset Supper. It’s a great way to give back and then enjoy the events. Volunteers help with set-up, greeting guests, and more. These are large food and beverage events that are 21+, so volunteers must be at least 21 years of age. We also produce a handful of smaller events throughout the year that rely on volunteer support.

Let us know if you’d like to sign-up for our volunteer email list to receive more information about events.


Join A Committee

Help by lending your personal or professional skills on one of the following Market Foundation committees – Marketing & Communications, Stewardship, Sponsorship, Finance, Donor Engagement, and Community Services.

ASSEMBLE EMERGENCY FOOD KITS / NO COOK BAGS

Purchase items and assemble emergency food bags to be delivered to people at the food bank. These are intended to be easily carried to feed a person for a day or two – contents need to be non-perishable and not require a kitchen for prepping.

Email mktfoundation@pikeplacemarket.org to learn how to get yourself and your group started on compiling no-cook bags.


DIGITAL VOLUNTEER NEEDS

Google Ads and Website Support: We’re looking for help with website updates, SEO optimization, and Google Grant management. We’re especially in need of anyone experienced with WordPress, Yoast, Google Ads, or Google Analytics experience. If you’re interested in any of these areas, we would love your help!

Interested? Email us at lauren.wolbaum@pikeplacemarket.org to learn more about being involved. 

Social Media Ambassador: We need your help to bolster our social media presence and spread the word on the Market Foundation’s mission!

Follow the Pike Place Market Foundation on one or all of our social media platforms. Then like, share and comment on our posts to help spread the word and raise awareness! Share your own story about why you love the Market and give back to the Market Foundation for added impact. 

Facebook | Instagram | LinkedIn | Twitter | You can also sign-up here to join our email list. 

Interested in getting your whole team involved? Contact lauren.wolbaum@pikeplacemarket.org about ways to engage further. 

Data Entry: A healthy database is a good database. Our staff could use assistance with data entry needs such as address updates, contact changes, profile building, and cleaning data for reporting and solicitation purposes. Help us streamline our processes, develop enhanced and personalized solicitations/communications and build stronger relationships.

Training will be provided! Email Jenn at jennifer.schooley@pikeplacemarket.org with interest.
