Volunteering Your Time
The Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s success has largely been a result of the unparalleled efforts of its volunteers. Our volunteering supporters number more than 250, and they collectively contribute more than 12,000 hours annually!

We currently have a volunteer spot with our Development Department for an outgoing volunteer for approximately 3 – 5 hours per week to make phone calls to our members and donors as follow-ups to fundraising efforts that take place year-round. The right person will be able to make many calls in succession, take notes and payment information, and be a good ambassador for the Center. Contact Terry Harley at [email protected] or fill out the application mentioned above.
While the Buffalo Bill Center of the West does attempt to recognize volunteers through an annual banquet and benefits, all of the volunteers say they participate because of the personal satisfaction it delivers.
Volunteers have numerous opportunities to share their life and work skills at the Center. Activities cover the entire spectrum of museum-related support functions. Some individuals enjoy being docents or leading children or family activities, and other dedicated volunteers deliver indispensable service behind the scenes. These hidden roles range from assisting in administrative operations to helping set up exhibitions.
