Volunteers are an integral part of the Colorado Neurological Institute team and family. Whether you're interested in directly supporting our patients and families through work with a center or program, staffing an event, working with staff "behind the scenes" in a clerical capacity, or contributing in some other meaningful way, we may have an important role for you!
As a CNI Volunteer, you can get involved in a variety of ways:
- Patient and family support services
- Special events planning
- Representing CNI at a community event
- Leadership roles within the organization
- Invitations and mailings
- Clerical duties, such as filing
- Staffing support, where needed
Those are just a few of the many ways CNI Volunteers contribute to the fullfillment of our mission. If you have volunteering ideas, please share them with us!

About some of our great volunteers
Diane Damore (left) and Dean Mills (right) were recognized for their wonderful volunteer contributions to CNI at the 2012 Cindy Acree Hope Awards Celebration (pictured with Tami Lack, center, CNI Executive Director). Diane is President of the Swedish Medical Center Auxiliary, a group of volunteers whose mission is to provide caring service to hospital patients, their families, and the surrounding community. Dean is acting as co-chair for CNI's Annual Gala in 2012 (being held September 29- more info. coming soon). He serves on the gala planning committee, has helped choose the venue and speaker and is already actively fundraising, meeting donors and meeting with other volunteers to leverage marketing efforts for the gala.
For their important contributions, CNI presented Diane and Dean with specials letters of recognition signed by Colorado Governer John Hickenlooper and Lt. Governor Joseph Garcia on behalf of Serve Colorado, the governor's commission on volunteerism and community service.
