Want to volunteer with the Clemson Club and give back to Clemson? Then we need you!
There are many definitions of VOLUNTEERING, so here are a few ideas.
- Identify unique event ideas and locations: We are ALWAYS on the lookout for a unique venue to host an event, especially if there is a Clemson connection, or ideas for events in general. Every idea is considered!
- Host an event in your office or home: We can have all the event ideas we want, but without hosts our events cannot happen. If you would like to host an event at your office (in a conference room or rooftop terrace) or your home (such as for the Freshmen Send Off Party or annual Pig Pickin') please let us know. You can offer just the space with no financial obligation, or you are welcome to consider financially sponsoring the event.
- Sponsor an event: Speaking of sponsors....this is a great way to support the events of our Clemson Club in DC/VA/MD and get Clemson Fund credit (you know, your annual fund contributions) from the University, which can be tax deductible.
- Join the Football Watch Party team: We have several locations around our area for watching games each fall, but we need lots of volunteers to help host and greet people at each location. This is a really fun way to get involved with the Clemson Club!
- Volunteer to represent Clemson at local high schools' college fairs. A list of upcoming college fairs and details on how to volunteer can be found here.
- Secure compelling speakers: If you or someone you know would like to speak to the Clemson Club, either through an informal gathering or a formal reception, please let us know. This could include an educational lecture, tour of a facility, speaking at one of our Six Degrees of Clemson networking events (ask us, we'll tell you more!), or coordinating with a faculty member from campus to come to our region.
- Facilitate connections with top industry professionals, companies or foundations: The DC/Baltimore corridor is home to many, many foundations and company headquarters who may have an interest in partnering with Clemson on a high level. This could expand beyond the beltway and go all the back to campus. Ideas include university endowments, foundation grants, scholarships, or instituting programs or new initiatives for students.
- Encourage others to become involved: As you run into Tigers at your kids' school, church, the grocery store, or a restaurant, tell them about our club and encourage them to visit www.clemsonclub.org to learn more.
- Attend events: This is a no-brainer. View all of our upcoming events on the Calendar and register to join us.
