If you can contribute to our mission by donating your time and skills or if you think we can be of some assistance to you please get in touch. Some of the specific skills we are currently looking for volunteers in are listed below. If your area of expertise/interest is not listed below, we still encourage you to contact us. Together we can impact the world positively.

Please contact Sonia Dhami at sonia @sikhfoundation.org or call 650 494 7454.

Communication Intern:

Can you help the Sikh Foundation be better engaged with the community especially on social media? If yes, then we invite you to join our growing team and help us realize our goals. Some of the areas where you can take initiative and drive up our engagement are:

  • To scan the internet for relevant Sikh news and stories at regular intervals
  • Post stories to Facebook
  • Writing one feature (of 1000 or more words) every month on a subject mutually decided for publication in our webpage
  • Promote our events with the student bodies of various universities and educational institutions.

    Art Collection Cataloguing:

    The Kapany Collection of Sikh Art is one of the foremost collections of its kind in the world. It has gifted wonderful Sikh art pieces to the Asian Art Museum at San Francisco and regularly loans to museums worldwide. This is a wonderful opportunity for an enthusiastic art student to experience original Sikh art up close and help the Sikh Foundation catalogue all the pieces in the collection.

    Please contact Sonia Dhami at sonia @sikhfoundation.org or call 650 494 7454.

    Photography:

    Help us promote Sikh Art & Heritage. As a volunteer photographer you will have the opportunity to shoot still images as well as cover live events.
    To support our mission we offer an online store and have new products & books added regularly. These products need to be photographed and these pictures are circulated on our social media feeds as well as added to our store catalogue. The timings to do this are flexible.
    The Sikh Foundation organizes 4 events every year. These events are an outreach to the community and are aimed at celebrating the artists, entrepeneurs,writers, philanthropists,activists from the community.These events are usually organized on a Saturday. We would love for you to cover these events as a photo journalist.
